Naked and Afraid, Season 5, Episode 3 is “Frozen in Fear”. This episode takes place in Canada. And it is cold!
Greg Wells comes in a bit pessimistic about blonde women. Who doesn’t like blonde women? 🙂 He has obviously has had bad experiences with them in the past. His partner is a blonde woman. To his surprise she isn’t an airhead and they get along great.
Greg is 35 and ex-military. He is very confident in his fire making skills.
Upon arrival, Greg is given a primitive survival rating of 7.2 By the time he leaves he will have lost 30lbs. Dang, I need to go on that show!
Cassie is a marine biologist from Hawaii. How cool is that? She’s 23 and single. She writes the words “Sorry Nana” on her butt when she arrives and gets naked. lol. She is an endurance runner and her initial PSR is 6.2.
If you have a case of the Monday Blues, just be glad to not be starving and freezing your butt off in Canada. I know I sure am!! I missed my episode yesterday, but I heard that it had some interesting commentary. In case you’ve missed it too, my episode is “Frozen in fear” and is available on DiscoveryGo and iTunes, and you could probably find it on the @discoverychannel sometime this week 🤗 @nakedandafraidtv #nakedandafraid #letsgetnaked #survivor #survival #wilderness #bushcraft #discoverychannel #survivalist #wildernesssurvival #skills #freezing #canada
Frozen in Fear
Greg has a tough time with the fire. He looks frustrated. I actually feel pretty bad for the contestants as Greg appears to be good with primitive fire making. But, he’s not in Tennessee anymore- this is cold, wet, Canada.
The contestants shiver and shake as nights go by. They are able to filter water with moss in the mean time.
Finally, around 4 days in, they get fire! They feast on frog legs, berries, and lake vegetables.
Around day 7 the rain comes. It looks depressing, and it just doesn’t let up for quite sometime.
Once day they partake in eating acorns. Acorns from black oak trees are extremely bitter and cause explosive diarhea unless roasted properly. Fortunately for them, they only eat 1 or 2 (or 0) and spit the acorns out.
After a close encounter with a moose and listening to coyotes in the distance they eventually eat more frogs and snakes and make their way out of the woods, completing their 21 day journey.
Both Cassie and Greg contributed and made an excellent team.
