In South Africa's Limpopo Basin, elite survivalists Matt Wright and Gary Golding must protect novice survivalists and super-fans attorney Molly Jansen and dog sledder Blair Braverman first as separate teams for 10 days then merging on Day 11 while dealing with spitting cobras, territorial elephants and a unhappy last-minute storm. Being unused to the unyielding heat, Blair was forced to tap out on Day 14.
Discovery Channel takes the ubiquitous survival show theme to the next level by stripping it to its bare essentials. Two complete strangers - a man and a woman - meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food and water, and they're completely naked. Each episode follows the two as they attempt to survive on their own for 21 days, with nothing but one personal item each and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there is no other choice, the couple quickly get to know each other - and their surroundings - and hope that their instincts, survival skills and intestinal fortitude will serve them well.
