Naked and Afraid “Bad Blood” Airs May 22 2016 and is Season 5 Episode 11. I am going to live blog this episode below. This page will be updated while it airs. I’ll also be on Twitter commenting @Lenraleigh.
Please comment at the bottom with any input you may have!
Bad Blood is being filmed in Nicaragua. The contestants this episode are Nicole Terry and Angel Rodriguez.
From what I have heard, Nicole is a 27yr old black belt in Taekwondo. Her Bio on Discovery says that she is a nursing student from Hanover Massachusetts. Nicole is active on Instagram here: @Nicole_and_Doobie. According to her most recent post she will enter Nicaragua with a 5.9 PSR and her skills include shelter building and water purification.
Angel is 37 and from Puerto Rico and grew up in Santa Cruz. According to his bio he’s a master improviser.
Nicaragua is in a drought. They are trying to avoid snake, tarantulas, and caimin. They come to the “lake” they were looking for and it is a small stream of solid green disgusting water with dead fish floating in it.
After several hours of Nicole trying to get a fire started Angel jumps in and gets it lit. They cook the water for quite some time which looks like pea soup and drink it.
Day 4 Angel is out getting water and hunting while Nicole is at the camp lying down. He catches an iguana, and they cook it and eat it. Actually I’m not sure if it is day 4 or 5 when he catches the iguana- the days are flying by.
On day 6 Nicole is lying on her back and stung by a scorpion!!
They go on a hike looking for greener pastures and find a lake to take a dip in. It is 101 degrees!
Well I knew it was only a matter of time before things got ugly. Angel suggests that Nicole had a maid while growing up. Angel spent time on the streets as a kid and has obviously heard enough complaining from Nicole. It doesn’t go over so well. lol.

Day 10 everyone is needing some protein pretty bad. Angel builds a really cool deadfall trap with spikes on it in an effort to catch a caiman. It fails but was a great effort. Will he try again?
Later they together catch a turtle but Nicole drops it and tries to blame Angel.
Day 13 Nicole realizes she has been miserable and not pulling her own weight. She apologizes. Over the next several days she helps collect wood, get water and do other chores to help out and work as a team.
Nicole encounters a boa, and, she actually catches it! Woohoo, good job Nicole. Judging by the twitter hashtag #NakedandAfraid it is too little too late but, hey, she is making an effort.
Day 21 – Extraction Day
The contestants begin making their exit and encounter a tarantula and change direction. They make it out!
Nicole has lost 20lbs and ends with a 6.1 PSR.
Angel lost 33lbs! Angel goes from a 7.3 to an 8.1.
