The idea of reality TV has always been a controversial one. What is reality and how can it be depicted through the recording and editing of actual events? I do not have the answer to this question and do not attempt to answer this question through this article. I do, however, contend that I have found a reality show that reflects more honest human-ness than any other reality show. Does this in turn make it more real? Naked and Afraid on Discovery Channel seemed a ridiculous notion when I first engaged with an episode recently. The name alone was almost too much to handle. I was concerned about embarking on a journey into a porn genre that I was not ready for. Instead, it quickly became clear that the nudity in this show was not purely for audience pleasure. While I am sure that this element helped in advertising, ultimately, this made the show that much more extreme — a more honest reflection of how early humans had to survive and an element that pushes contestants further into survival mode than others of its kind.
