'Naked and Afraid XL' Just Added a Challenging New Twist!

Get ready for the most brutal “Naked and Afraid XL” yet!

Twelve veteran survivalists will be dropped in the scorching savannah of South Africa for 40 days and 40 nights with no clothes, little vegetation, and few resources.

What makes this season different is that they now have the power to banish one another. If someone isn’t pulling their weight, they will be cast out!

Fans can look forward to seeing some familiar faces, like Seth Reece, who is seeking redemption, Makani Nalu, who may find her vegetarian diet especially challenging, and Joshua Bell, who will have to prove his survival skills go beyond using duct tape.

Check out this promo for a sneak peek at just how savage things get!

The new season premieres May 24 at 8 p.m. on Discovery, followed by “Naked and Afraid XL Clothed and Opinionated,” featuring past contenders weighing in on the current season.

Fans can also check out “Naked and Afraid Watch Party,” kicking off May 3, as former contestants reconnect via video chat and relive their 21-day challenges.
