Los Angeles: Complete strangers will be stranded in a remote area of the world in fight to stay alive for a reality show on Discovery Channel ‘Naked and Afraid’.

‘Naked and Afraid’ is billed as taking ‘survival of the fittest’ to the next level and dubbed the Everest of survival challenges. Each duo will be left with no food, no water and no clothes for 21 days, which they must survive on their own with nothing but one personal item each.
