The survivalist series will return for a second season.
July 13, 2023
Discovery announced today that Naked and Afraid: Last One Standing has been renewed for Season 2. The news comes days ahead of this Sunday's freshman finale, which will wrap a solid debut outing which saw the reality show become Discovery Channel's highest-rated series of 2023 to date.
"Naked and Afraid is one of Discovery's top franchises and we knew audiences resonated with Last One Standing as ratings continued to build week after week," said Howard Lee, President of Discovery Networks and TLC. "We are giving viewers more of what they crave."
The series follows 12 of Naked and Afraid's most experienced all-stars as they head to South Africa to face its punishing Oribi Gorge in a new type of challenge. For the first time, survivalists compete against each other in a grueling, multiphase challenge that tests their primitive skills for the chance to win $100,000. The competitors can use any means necessary - even sabotage - to take home the grand prize.

They should make a series of how to survive on the streets of San Francisco.

Is there going to be any reunion or any kind of after the finale show?

Will there be a "Last One Standing" reunion? There should be!

I watched Last One Standing, as I do all the shows, but I didn't like it. Too much competition among friends. I like the original shows with two people trying to survive. Nice to see Waz win, but Dan and Steven sure did their best. Jeff......that's another story!

I had mixed feelings about this one. I liked the original "Naked and Afraid" concept where we saw just how far removed modern people are from actually surviving in the wild. You saw the regulars returning and slowly getting better to the point where you didn't doubt that they would make the 21 or 40 or even 60 days baring a medical tap.
So I guess that's why they had to introduce a competition factor. But I don't like these survivalists being pitted against one another. It turns the show into "Survivor". I kept waiting for Jeff Probst to show up. And while this season even the self-centered Jeff has basically played fair, what happens in future seasons as the contestants ramp it up. What do you do if one contestant actually does start tossing or stealing the caches won by others?
And where will they find a new set of contestants capable of going 40 days? There aren't that many who have proven themselves capable of it even without the competition factor. We'll probably be seeing pretty much the same faces next season.
Besides, playing for only $100,000 seems pretty low-rent to me. If CBS and "Survivor" can afford $1 million, why can't Discovery? A typical "Survivor" contestant couldn't make it three days on "Naked and Afraid".

Tired of hearing Jeff yell, This is what I live for. I wish Steven, Dan or Walz (think that is his name) wins.

I stopped watching the Orginal and watched maybe a few episodes of XL and didn't even know there were other spinoffs. This app I was using still shows the show poster and I clicked on it and saw this one underneath as in a show I may like. I did and have watched every week and the 90 min episodes I think is a better format instead of like 16-18 episodes you get 10. I hated Jeff at first but I hope he does this last week's one I thought Matt was going to sneak through. And people it's a competition for $100000 there is NO friends at the beginning, middle and maybe not even at the end. They state sabotage is allowed and yet no one has done it. People get their emotions involved and forget this one is for a 100G's baby. Other shows sure work together to keep one another in the game but besides that I will do you wrong the minute I get too. Pot and knife left alone good bye down the river, left your kill in the open well thank you for num nums! I'm the last one standing I'll buy you a fantastic ic dinner we both can enjoy. The losers well your exactly that you came close but not close enough.
Can't wait for the finale and Season 2 have it somewhere in roughest winters spots!
