‘Naked and Afraid XL: Frozen’ Preview

The “Naked and Afraid” franchise started airing on the Discovery Channel in 2013 and the “XL” spinoff debuted in 2015. The “XL” is the Roman numeral for 40, which is the number of days the contestants must survive in the wilderness. So far, across eight seasons, the survivalists have competed in warm climates — South Africa, Peru, Colombia, the Philippines and more.

But now for season nine, the contestants are taking on a new challenge — the Rocky Mountains of Montana for “Naked and Afraid XL: Frozen.” We aren’t exactly sure how “naked” everyone will be in the cold mountains, but it will surely be fun to find out. Also, this one doesn’t require a 40-day excursion. Due to the temperatures, it is only 14 days.

The Discovery Channel press release teases:

While summer is heating up in the Northern Hemisphere, a select few have chosen a more chilling adventure. In the frigid Rocky Mountains, sub-freezing temperatures, hypothermia, and frostbite are only a few of the immediate dangers at hand as 12 “Naked and Afraid XL” all-stars attempt to last 14 punishing days and nights in the frozen ice-covered wilderness.

The contestants include:

  • Waz Addy, who completed on “Naked and Afraid” season 12 and “Naked and Afraid XL” season eight.
  • Gabrielle Balassone, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” seasons seven and nine and “Naked and Afraid XL” season five.
  • Sarah Bartell, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season 10 and “Naked and Afraid XL” season six.
  • Rod Biggs, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season 12 and “Naked and Afraid XL” season eight.
  • Trish Bulinsky, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season 10 and “Naked and Afraid XL” season eight.
  • Sara Burkett, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” seasons 10 and 11.
  • Ky Furneaux, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” seasons one, nine and 11.
  • Wes Harper, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” seasons nine and 12 and “Naked and Afraid XL” season six.
  • Jermaine Jackson, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season nine.
  • Jeremy McCaa, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” seasons five and seven and “Naked and Afraid XL” season four.
  • Jake Nodar, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season six and “Naked and Afraid XL” season two.
  • Joe Ortlip, who competed on “Naked and Afraid” season 12.

The premiere episode is titled “Rocked by the Rockies” and its description reads, “Scrambling from the start, 12 elite survivalists take on Montana’s sub-freezing Rocky Mountains; medics must intervene after a fainting spell; Gabby and Ky score a food win; a survivalist is forced from the challenge.”

Then on August 7 comes episode two, called “Rocky Road Ahead.” Its description reads, “Scrambling from the start, 12 elite survivalists take on their harshest location yet, the sub-freezing Rocky Mountains of Montana. Jake injures his feet during insertion but tries to push through. Severe dehydration puts a survivalist’s challenge at risk.”

“Naked and Afraid XL: Frozen” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on the Discovery Channel.
