Plot Synopsis

NAKED AND AFRAID XL is a 40-day challenge for 12 extreme survivalists who find themselves stranded in a very remote equatorial jungle of Colombia with no food, no water, and no clothing. These six women and six men have all previously survived NAKED AND AFRAID, which required they each work together with one stranger of the opposite sex to survive for 21 days. Now, in this series, they'll be in the wild almost twice as long and they're all vying for the same limited resources, making NAKED AND AFRAID XL both a survival and societal challenge. How will these survivalists respond to each other? Will they band together as one large group or will they break apart into smaller groups to survive? The women include: Alana Barfield (Fiji Islands), Dani Beau (Colombia), Honora Bowen (Brazil), Dani Julien (Andros Islands), Eva Rupert (Madagascar) and Laura Zerra (Panama and the Amazon). The men include Chris Fischer (Dominica), Hakim Isler (Himalayas), Shane Lewis (Costa Rica), Luke McLaughlin (Namibia), E.J. Snyder (Tanzania and the Amazon) and Jeff Zausch (Madagascar). Two weeks before the series premiere -- on Sunday, June 28, 2015 from 10am-9pm ET/PT -- Discovery premiered a collection of one-hour casting specials, highlighting each of the survivalists. Then, on Sunday, July 5, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, Discovery premiered a one-hour special, "Welcome to the Jungle," immediately before the series premiere at 10pm ET/PT.
