Naked and Afraid

Damn, well no doubting the redemption teams bond and loyalty. 

I guess.  I'm a little more cynical, and think Duck was just ready to tap, using Charlie's departure as a way to not look like such a pussy.  It's much like last time, where he escorted his teammates to the group camp before quitting, so he could look like some sort of altruistic hero.  I don't think Duck has the mental stamina for 40-day challenges. 

I'm not a Jeff fan, but hate to see anyone have to tap for medical reasons out of their control.  I would rather he be able to stay, but having to rely on others to make it to the end.  I think that would drive him more nuts than tapping.

Agree.  That Duck thing was stupid as shit.  Kind of reminded me of the scene in The Princess Bride where Cary Ewel's character tells the evil prince to put his sword down and sit down, and he jumps into the chair w/o hesitation.

Kind of disappointed at putting the last 11 days + extraction into one, final episode.

I tend to hold grudges, so I'm not sure if I would forgive Jeff so easily, but glad he had to rely on others and that he is at least pretending to have had a change of heart.  There were a lot of badasses this season.  All the tappers came from only two teams...the all male redemption team (all tapped), and the all female team (both of Riley's teammates tapped). 

The reunion previews look contentious, with Jeff and Charlie arguing survival strategies.  While I did not appreciate Jeff's selfishness, until Charlie completes a 40-day challenge, he can shut the fuck up about criticizing how others choose to survive.

The rules have changed over the years.  Sometimes they get two items, sometimes three.  I may have even seen four.  They always get a knife of some sort.  Sometimes they get a fire starter, sometimes a dumbass prefers a fire making kit, sometimes neither.  I've seen a pot to boil water as a chosen item, or as a provided freebie.

Assuming a knife and fire starter are provided, the choices are usually one of the following:
pot to boil water
mosquito net
fishing net
fishing kit (line and hooks)
fishing spear with or without mask
cordage

My choice would depend on the location.  Is there a way to purify water without needing a pot?  How bad are the bugs?  Is fishing likely to be a worthwhile activity, and is it limited to the ocean?  What are the other protein/food options?

I generally like the thought of a mosquito net which can serve dual purposes, but only if potable water is secured, and only if bugs are really bad.  They did not have one on the last XL, and did not seem to miss it.  It likely would not have helped at all with centipedes and scorpions.

Yeah they did, one of the girls brought a bug net. Maybe Manu or the other one that tapped. 

I'll trust your memory over mine.  Regardless, it apparently wasn't a necessity, as no one was using it, at least not that they were showing.

Agreed. Wish Charlie would have punched Jeff in his smug fucking face, but that wasn't going to happen. Very little unseen footage. Already deleted it from my dvr.

I wouldn’t bother with the reunion, it was basically 80 minutes of Charlie & Jeff yapping. The highlight was seeing Rylie all cleaned up. 

Forgot shark week took over. When did the reunion come on? Still want to watch, just to finish the season up. 

 

And I predict Shane and the weird girl ends in a murder/suicide.

Haven‚Äôt watched this show in a while, but just watching the beginning of season 8, Episode 2 ‚Äúlost at sea‚ÄĚ is legitimately my worst nightmare. You couldn‚Äôt pay me any amount of money to try that, even for 2 days. I‚Äôd quit on the spot. Fuck that. I know Im way behind, so I won‚Äôt derail the thread. Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in.

Being shipwrecked is my worst nightmare. Deep water scares TF out of me. Making it to an atoll might seem like salvation, but in reality drowning is probably the preferred outcome. Oddly, it never bothered me utill I went to sea, then it became very real.

Reminds me of a Stephen King story I read as a kid.  Surgeon gets stranded on a desert isle.  Gets hungry.  Starts lopping off body parts to survive.

I just watched the reunion show.  I thought it was pretty good.  Awkward at times as, I'm assuming, the players didn't get to see any of the footage until live on the show.

Rylie.  Wow.  Funny in that there are several scenes when she's on the island where she's so far from attractive.

Unfortunately this appears to just be a one-off episode that they had in the can for some reason. There are no new single episodes on the DTV guide, back to the 3-hour block of reruns this Thursday night. 

Looking at my online guide and it shows a new 1hr Uncensored and a new 2hr. They're probably recut old footage, but they're listed as new.

Double Laura episode last night. If there's anybody I'd want to be stranded with, it would be her.

Yep or the girl that was all into yoga.  Forgot her name.

Found her.  Makani Nalu.  Apparently a singer or something.

She was fine as hell. Also dug Cassidy Flynn. She seemed so sweet and giving in addition to fine. Seems like she'd go the extra mile in the sack.
