Naked and Afraid, why?

Hello. How’s your Monday going so far?

We got home from Venice last night and MacGyver and I watched a little T.V. Have you seen that show Naked and Afraid? I don’t know why I can’t turn away from it because I don’t really even like it, but I just keep watching. In case you haven’t seen it the premise of the show is to take two people, a man and a woman, and drop them off in a remote and extreme environment to see if they can handle the harsh conditions for 3 weeks, oh, and they’re naked.

Before the challenge they are rated and given a survival score and once the challenge is over, they are re-evaluated to see if their score improves. There is no prize, no big money, only the challenge to see if they can survive for 21 days in those circumstances. I still don’t understand why they can’t have clothing. I mean, in reality, if you got stranded in this day and age in almost all of those places, you would most likely have clothes on. As far as I’m concerned, the naked part is just a stupid ploy to get the viewers to watch. MacGyver and I watched 2 episodes last night.

I will never get those 2 hours back….NEVER!

This morning I left for my run before 7am. It was already 80 degrees and quite humid. I still managed to run 5 miles, albeit slow, so I feel pretty good about that. I also took the dogs for a little one mile walk so if I sit on my ass for the rest of the day, it’s justified, right? Kidding.

In reality I’m going to go computer shopping today. I just need to bite the bullet and find a new one. It’s not the money I need to spend that scares me, it’s the all the work involved. I have to transfer over all my files and I have to relearn a new computer. It’s stressing me out just thinking about it but since Friday is a holiday and we have a long weekend ahead I guess that would be the perfect time to do it.

This weekend MacGyver and I made a quick stop at a discount grocery store for some veggies to cook with dinner and we saw this spectacle,

Does anyone else think that pinata is freaky looking? Well, it scared me.

Okay, that’s all I got, I need to get up and move.

  1. Love Naked and Afraid!! It is strangly addicting. No way would I ever do that. Those crazy people are being eaten by Mosquitos in places that is horrifying. Can’t stop watching it though. Ha!

    • I’ve never made it through an entire episode of either of those but I think that’s because you really need to watch them from the first season so you know more about the people. Unfortunately, I always miss the first episode. 🙁

  2. I could go on a show called “Afraid To Be Naked”!! No reality show wants to see its rating plummet by offering viewers brief glimpses me naked…..believe me….lol

    • Most of the contestants are not the type of people you would picture would be comfortable walking around naked yet there they are. I think that’s why I cant look away…LOL

  3. Yes! I thought the same thing…SO stupid, yet I could not stop watching it…it kinda scares me too….today I had multiple meltdowns on my runs as the horseflies were swarming me…..i can’t even imagine without ANY clothes on. I would not wanna be on a reality show…although survivor always intrigued me….as I am so competitive haha!

    • I hate horseflies! I think I would have lost it if they swarmed me. Sadly I think I am now a closet Naked and Afraid watcher, LOL! You would rock on Survivor and if you were on it, I’d definitely watch it. 🙂
