Where to watch Naked and Afraid season 16? Release date and more
Naked and Afraid is throwing strangers into fight or flight mode yet again with its 16th installment. In each episode, two complete strangers will travel to a remote location amid the wilderness for 2-3 weeks with nothing but one survival tool. The newest season is inching closer, set to premiere on October 15 at 8 p.m. ET on Discovery.
A sneak peek of the upcoming trials and tribulations the contestants will have to face was dropped on September 14, but not much else has been revealed yet. Each duo will begin by stripping off their clothes, catapulting them into 14 to 21 days of living on the bare necessities, without clothes, food, or water, using their primal skills to survive for as long as possible. Prescription medication and female sanitary products are provided.
There's no official cash prize for those who make it through the three weeks, but that's okay because they're all in it to step outside their comfort zones and embrace a new, adventurous experience.

What to expect from Naked and Afraid season 16
The network has been very tight-lipped about what season 16 of Naked and Afraid has to offer, except for some hints, including its sneak peek. This time around, like its previous seasons, pairs will need to work together to survive a few weeks, rummaging through rough terrain, freezing weather, and dangerous jungle creatures, all while they're stripped of their clothes and left with no food or water.
This season features a diverse cast, making up dynamic pairs for each episode. Some of the confirmed members include an ICU nurse, a banker recovering from a brain injury, a performer, and an ex-survivalist back for another shot. Each pair will be required to complete challenges sent in by fans during their experience; this could gain them advantages and perhaps even some necessities.
"I am so excited to get naked." - A contestant says in the preview
Naked and Afraid's teaser starts off with a contestant thrilled to finally have the freedom of not wearing clothes, but things quickly take a turn. Another adventurer feels grounded by the ability to connect with nature until she's shown having a breakdown. They're seen shooting arrows, diving through gushing rivers, surviving chilly temperatures, and literally putting their blood, sweat, and tears into this.
Closing off the preview is one contestant who expresses what will likely be every participant's opinion as the show progresses. Exposed and in the wild, the series is a true and utter life-changer, whether for the good or the bad, for the survivalists and viewers to decide.
"It's just the most painful experience." - Contestant closed off the teaser
