Critic Reviews for Naked and Afraid: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Naked and Afraid: Season 1

  • Aug 07, 2020
    I've only watched two episodes so far. I found this series after watching all 7 seasons of Alone, another survivalist type reality show. I found Naked and Afraid to be not nearly as good. The fact there's no prize makes me wonder why the hell are these people doing this? And what's the penalty if they tap out early? Public shame maybe? And the presence of the camera crew gives it a strangely staged vibe. The show likes to focus on the personal drama between the contestants. I prefer the raw survivalist theme of Alone.

    The show is entertaining, but I have a few issues. Some situations seem really unsafe. Some contestants are very full of themselves and rude towards their partners. I wouldn't want to be surviving with them and who would? Lastly, I have issues with some of the filming locations. Especially the Okavango Delta in Africa's Kalahari Desert. Several shows have been filmed there. This fragile ecosystem is now up for exploitation by the government of Botswana, now that they have brutally and forcefully removed the native hunter gatherer people from the Okavango. Sound familiar? This happens everwhere doesn't it. Make way for diamond mining and destroy the oldest hunter gatherer people on the planet. Diamonds and survival shows....These Kalahari Bushmen of the Okavango Delta are determined by genetic studies to be the most ancient modern human lineage of all Earth's peoples. The First People of all the people. The Kalahari Bushmen and related peoples are a heritage treasure to every nation. If I understand what I read correctly, we all came from their lineage. Or did I misunderstand? If true, then they are of vast cultural importance to all the world's peoples. Their culture, language and land rights should be preserved to the extent possible for all posterity. Their land and water rights should be returned. The remaining Kalahari languages should be studied and preserved. Their way of living should be learned about by all the school children. These people once lived from the south of Africa to the north, the whole continent. Now, in small pockets. Once a few million, now thousands. How many have died from disease or malnutrition in the past decade, cut off from their resources? How many have been exploited? How many received any healthcare? Who actually got training so they could support themselves other than hunting and gathering or being exploited..Did the filming in the Okavango actually help the Bushmen, also called San or Koi people, in any way? One more thing....With a life expectancy prior to relocation of about 27 years (estimate, my math might be off but it's not good--half dead by fifteen and the other by about forty) due to untreated diseases like malaria, has that changed since relocation? There's just almost nothing available about them since 2011.
