About Naked and Afraid XL TV Show
The Amazon rainforest of Peru is such a brutal survival location, that just one week into this season's XL challenge, half of the 12 survivalists will quit or be medically evacuated. In NAKED AND AFRAID XL: NEXT LEVEL, some of the franchise's most skilled and experienced survivalists prove no match for the Amazon's relentless threats - 15-foot anaconda, pounding rainstorms, aggressive bullet ants and even poisonous plants. In a franchise-first, a dual track challenge has this season's survivalists attempting two different missions - eight XL rookies look to last 40 days, while four All-Stars try to become Legends and conquer 60 days.
Their goals may look different, but these XL survivalists share a common enemy - the unforgiving Peruvian Amazon. With a location so unrelenting, unprecedented measures have to be taken... and 'Legendary' reinforcements will be sent in to give the survivalists a chance to defeat the Amazon.
NAKED AND AFRAID XL returns with an all-new season premiering Sunday, May 1 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery. In addition to watching NAKED AND AFRAID XL on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #NakedandAfraid and following Naked and Afraid on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
This season, four Naked and Afraid XL veterans ready to take on an epic 60-day challenge lead a new generation of challengers eager to earn their 40-day stripes. Spread across one hundred miles of ruthless jungle, the Peruvian Amazon is considered one of the most feared environments on the planet. The survivalists will have to endure aggressive piranha in the waters, venomous fer de lance slithering in the brush and relentless black flies descending from above.
As the survivalists begin dropping like flies, a welcomed surprise on Day 21 may be the ticket to success to see the remaining challengers through. As they say, when the going gets tough, it's always nice to have an extra set of hands... or two.

· Amber Hargrove
· Gary Golding
· Steven Lee Hall Jr
· Kaila Cumings
· Dan Link
· Jamie Frizzell
