DISCOVERY CHANNEL/ Special to the Sentinel Darrin Reay, former Grand Junction resident, appeared on the Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid” in 2015 and can currently be seen on “Naked and Afraid XL” set in the South African wilderness.

Getting ‘Naked’

Survivalist a natural fit for hit Discovery Channel show

It’s hard to imagine anyone better suited to be “Naked and Afraid” than former Grand Valley resident Darrin Reay.

The 35-year-old is a part of the all-star cast of survivalists on the latest incarnation of the Discovery Channel show “Naked and Afraid XL,” in which a tribe of barely clothed survivalists try to make it 40 days in the African bush with little more than their wits. And Reay is strangely perfect for the challenge.

For the past nine years straight, he said he spent more than 250 nights a year camped out in the wilderness. By choice, not necessity.
