Naked and Afraid XL All-Stars is about to get more intense than ever, as veteran survivalist Matt Wright joins the group. Here is an exclusive sneak into Sunday’s episode.

Naked and Afraid XL All-Stars has seen the group of survivalists get on well with the odd hiccup here and there, but things are about to get more intense than ever. After going it alone on Naked and Afraid: Savage on Discovery GO, veteran survivalist Matt Wright is about to join the group. While he brings a lot of excellent skills in the name of survival, he also saves up  from some questionable dietary choices for many.

This isn’t Matt’s first time out in the wild, either. He’s already completed a previous Naked and Afraid challenge and took part in a previous XL (40-day) challenge. The only reason he dropped out of the XL challenge was due to contracting flesh-eating bacteria, but now he’s back with a vengeance to make sure he manages it this time and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to survive.

The exclusive clip gives you a look at what one of the group members says is the “tough part of survival.” Meat that’s being cooked to eat is full of maggots. Just how desperate do they need to be to eat food that “smells of death,” according to one of the survivalists?

This is just one part of the tension that Matt will cause, as he comes from a solo challenge that the rest of the group had no idea he was completing and brings fresh meat. It’s going to be exciting to see how this changes the dynamic in the group, as they learn tips from someone who has survived the wilderness alone. Are they willing to go to the same extremes as one group member or follow the solo survivalist?

If you haven’t already see Matt’s journey of solo survival, you’ll definitely want to catch up with Naked and Afraid: Savage on the Discovery GO app. All episodes are currently available to stream, so you can catch up with his journey before he joins the rest of the group to finish off the challenge. You’ll see everything he’s been willing to do so far, so you’ll be ready for the exciting moments with the group.
