Naked and Afraid: Savage the African Adventure begins on Discovery

Matt Wright is back as the Discovery Channel has given him the hardest challenge they’ve ever given a survivalist: to survive by himself for 40 days in Africa. And yes, he’ll be buck naked.

The mini-episodes of the appropriately named Naked and Afraid: Savage will premiere exclusively on the Discovery GO app on Sundays during the upcoming season. The first web episode premieres on April 29, and a preview video is above. 

Wright’s task is to track the other participants of Naked and Afraid: XL, who will be having their own African adventure. It remains to be seen whether Wright will cross path with any of the other survivalists. If he doesn’t, he’ll be naked and alone in one of the harshest places on earth.

If anyone is up for the task, it’s Wright, who has accomplished a lot on the long-running show. During his first adventure in Thailand, he proposed to his girlfriend, Brooke, while naked. From there, he went to Belize for a short adventure with PEOPLE’s Steve Helling. Then he went to Ecuador, where he showed his wilderness skills by hunting a wild boar.
