Naked and Afraid XL Season 6 Episode 1 Recap
The episode is titled ‘Valley of The Banished.’ The season premiere begins with all the contestants entering the Valley of The Banished in Mapungubwe, South Africa. They are warned about the presence of dominant Nile crocodiles and a good population of the three big cats – Lion, leopard, and cheetah.
Here are all the 12 contestants and their primitive survival rating – Sarah Bartell (7.1), Joshua Bell (4.3), Jon Bonessi (7.2), Dawn Dussault (5.4), Bulent Garcan (6.6), Gwen Grimes (7.4), Wes Harper (8.4), Makani Nalu (7.0), Seth Reece (5.0), Suzanne Reta (7.7), Kate Wentworth (6.0) and Ryan Eacret.
For the first time in the show’s history, the contestants are given the power to banish the member that slows the team down. Joshua Bell, also known as “The Duct Tape boy,” gives his teammates Gwen Grimes and Wes Harper, a very uncomfortable introduction, setting off a red flag. Also, he brings along a duct tape, this time too. Or shall I say, a mega duct tape? Anyway, Bulent is not impressed with Makani’s skills and begins nit-picking as soon as they land. Jon and Sarah’s team go fishing, while Wes and Gwen try their best not to lash out at Joshua and his unfunny jokes.
However, as the day progresses, it becomes evident that Joshua Bell isn’t able to keep up with the energy and dedication of the other survivalists, I mean, he does try and make a blanket, but that’s all. Therefore, Wes takes it upon himself to announce Joshua’s fate. “We’re going to banish you,” he says. On day 2, retired infantry officer Dawn Dussault AKA G. I. Jane begins complaining about her heightened anxiety and taps out of the game, disappointed all her fans. Well, with just ten survivalists left, it will be interesting to see who proves his/her worth and who is sent home!
