The New Season Takes Place in the Balkan Mountains, the Amazon Jungle & the South African Badlands
Naked and Afraid: Alone features several of the show’s previous contestants as they are given the same challenge of surviving for 21 days in the wild. However, the contestants don’t have the luxury of having a partner to help survive the wilderness this time around, so they have the added challenge of having nobody to communicate with during the three week experiment. The Discovery Channel calls the new season the most “most isolating challenge to date.”
A press release for Season 11 of the show gives viewers an idea of the various locations featured in the new season. “Dropped in Amazon jungles, the Balkan Mountains, or the African savannah with nothing and no one to watch their backs, tensions are at an all-time high as Naked and Afraid veterans take on the most intense challenge yet – surviving 21 days completely and utterly alone,” the Discovery press release reads.
Tune in Sunday, January 5 at 10 p.m. EST to catch the Season 11 premiere of Naked and Alone: Afraid on Discovery. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out this author’s profile for all of your reality TV coverage and entertainment news.
