Naked and Afraid XL Season 6 Episode 4 Recap
‘Naked and Afraid XL’ season 6 episode 4 is titled ‘No Calm After the Storm.’
Out of the 40-day survival challenge, the contestants still have to survive for 33 more days in the wild. After consuming bitter aloe, Wes and Gwen begin to throw up and also complain about having a slurred speech and blurred vision. The medics rush to their rescue and advise the pair to drink more water as the concentrated aloe has attacked their respective immune systems. The dangers in Jon, Sarah, and Ryan’s camp keep increasing as the crocodiles mark more territories, leaving a very limited area for the trio, to find food. Ryan uses fiber strands from a tree to make snares for catching hyraxes.
Tensions arise in Suzanne and Seth’s camp as the two find it difficult to work together because of Seth’s passive-aggressive responses. Bulent gets annoyed at Makani’s resistance to eating fish and meat to survive. The survivalists are hit by a thunderstorm and the temperature drops to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, causing Kate to lose her calm and have an emotional breakdown triggered by PTSD from her Panama challenge. After walking a long distance, Kate stumbles upon Wes and Gwen’s camp.
Tired of Bulent’s condescending and selfish behavior, Makani banishes herself, and their XLR drops from 6.3 to 5.9. After a decreasing flow of protein consumption, the XLR of Ryan, Sarah, and Jon’s team goes from 6.7 to 6.5. Seth and Suzanne’s lack of cooperation causes their XLR to fall from 5.8 to 5.5. The XLR of Kate, Wes, and Gwen’s team drops from 6.6 to 6.2. At the end of the episode, Kate makes a drastic decision of leaving the challenge.
