I watch a couple of episodes of Naked & Afraid and no mention is made of a payoff, if the contestants succeed. Do they receive anything other than a pat on the butt and an ego boast?

I think a pat on the butt, an ego boost, and bragging rights is all they get.

My wife enjoys watching the show, I can take it or leave it. To be honest how you'd end up naked in the middle of nowhere needing to survive leaves me scratching my head. Now a show like Survivor Man is a bit more realistic.

Stupid premise for a show. I've seen bits & pieces of a few episodes but always lost interest quickly. Last one I saw included a pair in the Malaysian jungle with the woman complaining that the insects were invading her private parts. Real family entertainment /snark!

I didn't ask for rude and snide remarks but, if there was any rewards given for surviving 21 days.

It has been said on some internet sites that they get an Appearance fee but no prize money or anything of the sort.

I actually think it is mildly entertaining, certainly more so than some of the other survival shows...

Just watching that show makes me want to scratch and itch.

Probably take more than 5K in Dr. bills to get ride of the festering sores I've seen and that doesn't include the scars but, maybe those are victory marks. :-)) I've watched about 6 episodes and the interest for me has left. Ed

We watch it. It's interesting to see the interaction between the partners, whether they make a good team or are at odds with each other, and what they do to make it through. Sometimes the person who seems totally prepared makes it, sometimes not.


Experts are often wrong, but rarely in doubt.
