NEWS OF THE WEIRD

Extremely Stupid Reality Show

Posted

The Discovery Channel announced a new survival show debuting this summer, "Naked and Afraid," dropping off a man and a woman (strangers), with no tools or clothes, to fend for themselves on an isolated Maldives island. Among the previews: Ms. Kellie Nightlinger, 38, a self-described "ultimate survivalist," finally thought after two weeks of nearly starving that she could attract fish close enough to be snatched up (as a New York Daily News reporter put it) using her "ladyparts as bait to catch fish between her legs." Said a Discovery Channel executive: "Survival shows are so common now, it's gotten more and more difficult to convince the audience that what they're watching is something extreme."
