    Simplest solution would be for them to choose two. If they both choose a blade, the other gets their lighter, pot, googles, whatever. Maybe he put goggles second as a joke. :)

    I'm wondering how much the show is actually cheating outside the view of the camera. As reported in the New York Post a few weeks ago, in the first episode the female survivalist who became ill was provided with IV's and some food. I don't have an issue with that as obviously I don't wish anyone hurt, but the show conveniently didn't mention it at all.

    In the last episode which took place on an island the couple couldn't make fire with either method they tried, but after a few days without fire finally got one started and I noted that they suddenly had a green cord fabric type cord which they were using for their "bow" method of fire starting. Again, no mention of where they suddenly obtained this strong cord!

    I'm guessing it would be more of an issue early on than later but I'm kinda curious if the guy on the show ever has to close his eyes and think about baseball.

    I wondered about the same thing. I'd assumed it was scavenged junk floated ashore like the couple on the other island found.

    While rationing his protein? :eek: :cool:
    I agree that all of the women have been better than the guys. All of the other guys managed to get pretty badly injured early on, until Fraidy-cat in Panama.
    I expected the water apples and coconuts and fresh water she had found at the beginning to solve most of their problems.

    People's...
    The lady was skeeved about huddling together naked for body warmth when it was raining and that was late in their 21 days when they've gotten to know each other so I'm gonna say that was off the table.

    I'm not talking about anything more than having a physical reaction to seeing what they are seeing.

    In my experience, which is considerable, that just doesn't happen.

    Perhaps the contestants can choose a bottle of those for their personal item! :D

    My husband is acquainted with one of the producers. He hasn't received any inside information but the show has been picked up for a second season.

    The nakedness definitely adds an aspect to the show and is the reason we're watching it when we ignore other survivalist type shows. We're recreational nudists and what these people are going through is a bit horrifying.

    I don't get it ... the blurring has hidden everything that a swimsuit/bikini would hide, so the naked part is pretty much redundant. What are you suggesting about men vs women watching the show?

    I'm not suggesting anything. The story that I linked stated that the show was highly rated in the male demographic. I'm curious if the show would get the same ratings if it naked aspect wasn't a part of it. My guess is that it probably wouldn't but you don't have to agree.

    I would suggest that the nudity aspect would be an initial draw, but since it is so heavily censored, that any sustained viewership is due to the survival aspect.

    I'm convinced the men are choosen specifically to make women look better able to survive
