Naked and Afraid (2013–…): Season 1, Episode 1 - The Jungle Curse - full transcript

Two naked survivalists are challenged to survive for 21 days in the Costa Rican rainforest, despite a deadly snake bite on a producer. Kim is paired with Shane. They encounter challenges ...

Kim: I WOULD LIKE US TO TREAT
EACH OTHER AS HUMAN BEINGS

AND HELP EACH OTHER GET THROUGH
THIS HELL OF A NIGHT.

Shane:
THIS IS ONE NASTY PLACE.

IT IS RELENTLESS,

AND IT JUST TAKES
EVERYTHING YOU GOT.

Kim: I DON'T WANT TO BE HERE
ANYMORE.

Narrator:
TWO STRANGERS...

THERE'S MY PARTNER.

...ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN,
BOTH EXPERIENCED SURVIVALISTS,

HAVE CHOSEN TO PUT THEIR SKILLS
TO THE ULTIMATE TEST.

WHOO-HOO!



THEY HAVE NO WATER, NO FOOD,
AND NO CLOTHES.

THEIR CHALLENGE
IS TO SURVIVE FOR 21 DAYS...

GOD.
WE ARE SO SCREWED.

...KNOWING THAT THE HUMAN BODY

CAN ONLY LIVE THREE DAYS
WITHOUT WATER...

WE NEED WATER, FAST.
...AND BEGINS TO SHUT DOWN

AFTER THREE WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD.

THIS IS THE EVEREST
OF SURVIVAL CHALLENGES.

CAN A MAN AND WOMAN

SURVIVE ALONE IN THE WILDERNESS
NAKED AND AFRAID?

Man: HOW MUCH MORE DO I HAVE TO
GIVE TO THIS PLACE?!

Narrator:
COSTA RICA, CENTRAL AMERICA.

IT'S MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN

CONTAINS
MANY FAST-FLOWING RIVERS



FED BY AN ANNUAL RAINFALL
OF OVER 200 INCHES.

[ THUNDER CRASHES ]

[ ANIMAL CALLING ]

COSTA RICA CONTAINS THE GREATEST
DENSITY OF SPECIES IN THE WORLD.

ITS GREAT BIODIVERSITY
MEANS IT'S HOST

TO A HUGE VARIETY OF POISONOUS
INSECTS AND REPTILES.

IT'S HOME TO MORE THAN
130 DIFFERENT SPECIES OF SNAKE,

INCLUDING THE DEADLY
FER-DE-LANCE,

ONE OF THE MOST FEARED SNAKES
IN THE WORLD.

ON A SCOUTING MISSION

JUST TWO DAYS
BEFORE SHANE AND KIM ARRIVED,

THE SHOW'S EXECUTIVE PRODUCER,
STEVE RANKIN,

WAS ATTACKED BY A FER-DE-LANCE.

HE WAS BITTEN ON THE FOOT,

WHERE THE VENOM QUICKLY SPREAD
THROUGH HIS BODY.

THE CREW SCRAMBLED TO TRANSPORT
STEVE TO A MEDEVAC HELICOPTER,

WHICH BROUGHT HIM
TO A LOCAL COSTA RICAN HOSPITAL.

JUST DRAINING
SOME OF THE FLUID OUT.

AFTER RECEIVING ANTIVENOM AND
UNDERGOING SEVERAL SURGERIES,

STEVE IS LUCKY TO BE ALIVE.

BECAUSE OF THIS GRUESOME ATTACK,

KIM AND SHANE
WERE GIVEN THE CHOICE

TO OPT OUT OF THE CHALLENGE.

RELUCTANTLY,
THEY AGREED TO PROCEED.

Shane: MY FIRST REACTION TO OUR
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BEING BITTEN

WAS, "HOW AM I GOING TO PREVENT

THIS SIMILAR INCIDENT
FROM HAPPENING?"

THESE SNAKES ARE NASTY,
AND THERE ARE MANY OF THEM.

THE ONLY WAY WE'RE GONNA
GET THROUGH 21 DAYS

IS BY LOOKING OUT
FOR EACH OTHER 24/7.

MY NAME IS SHANE LEWIS.

I GREW UP WITHOUT PARENTS,

SPENT 13 YEARS IN FOSTER HOMES
AND BOARDING SCHOOLS,

AND IN ORDER TO TRY
AND GET ME TO GROW UP,

THOSE SCHOOLS DECIDED
TO TAKE ME OUTSIDE.

BEING OUTDOORS
GAVE ME SORT OF A RELEASE,

AND I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY
WHEN I STARTED TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH BEING AWAY FROM THE WORLD.

Kim: WHEN I FOUND OUT
THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

WAS BIT BY THE MOST POISONOUS
SNAKE HERE,

THAT MADE ME MORE NERVOUS.

MY NAME'S KIM SHELTON.

I'VE WORKED AT SUMMER CAMPS
FOR A SURVIVAL SCHOOL.

ANYBODY WHO PRACTICES
SURVIVAL SKILLS

IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A WAY
TO TEST THOSE SKILLS,

AND THAT'S WHAT MADE ME
WANT TO DO THIS.

I'VE NEVER BEEN IN COSTA RICA.
I'VE NEVER BEEN IN THE JUNGLE.

AND I THINK
IT'S GONNA EMPOWER ME

AND GIVE ME
A LOT MORE CONFIDENCE

ABOUT THESE SKILLS
THAT I'VE BEEN PRACTICING.

Shane:
I'M NOT A KID ANYMORE.

I'M AN ADULT NOW, AND I DON'T
HAVE A PROBLEM BEING NAKED.

BUT I AM DEFINITELY WORRIED
ABOUT THE NUDITY LEVEL

WITH THE PREDATORS
THAT WE HAVE OUT THERE.

EVERY SINGLE CUT'S
A POTENTIAL SERIOUS INFECTION.

WE'LL HAVE TO BE
A LITTLE BIT CREATIVE

ABOUT PROTECTING OURSELVES.

Kim:
IN A TYPICAL SITUATION,

PEOPLE WOULD BE OUT HERE
IN THE JUNGLE

WITH SHOES, PANTS, AND CLOTHING

TO PROTECT THEMSELVES
FROM THINGS LIKE THE SNAKES,

BUT I'M NOT GONNA HAVE SHOES
OR ANY CLOTHING,

SO THAT MAKES ME
EVEN MORE NERVOUS.

Shane: I'M 40 YEARS OLD,

AND I HAVE A REAL HARD TIME
WITH THE 25-YEAR-OLD GENERATION

BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW
HOW TO COMMUNICATE,

AND I REALLY HOPE THAT
MY TEAMMATE IS NOT THAT WAY.

I WONDER WHAT THIS PERSON'S
GONNA BE LIKE.

I REALLY HOPE THAT THEY'RE NOT

THE COCKY ASS *BLEEP*
THAT I FEAR.

OH.

HELLO.
HEY.

NICE TO MEET YOU.
PLEASURE. NICE TO MEET YOU.

I'M SHANE.
SHANE? I'M KIM.

SHOULD WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT
THAT WE'RE BOTH NAKED

AND JUST, LIKE,
CHECK EACH OTHER OUT NOW?

WE MIGHT AS WELL DO IT RIGHT NOW
JUST TO GET IT OUT OF THE WAY.

JUST TURN AROUND
A COUPLE TIMES.

NO PROBLEM.
LET ME CHECK YOU OUT.

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

GET IT ALL
OUT IN THE OPEN.

NOW WE DON'T HAVE TO
WORRY ABOUT THAT.

NO, EXACTLY.
DEFUSE THE SITU--

OH, THAT IS SO AWESOME.
YOU DEFINITELY ROCK.

THAT IS AWESOME.

LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT
SOME MANMADE PRODUCTS THERE,

SO THAT'S PROBABLY FOR US.
OH, COOL.

Narrator:
SHANE AND KIM ARE EACH ALLOWED

TO BRING
ONE ESSENTIAL SURVIVAL ITEM.

YOU HAVE AN ITEM?
I HAVE A FIRESTARTER.

WITH EVERYTHING BEING DAMP
AND MOIST AROUND HERE

BECAUSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT
THAT WE'RE IN,

MAKING FIRE
IS GONNA BE A STRUGGLE,

EVEN WITH THIS THING.

I HAVE A MACHETE.
AWESOME.

YOU WANT
TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT?

YEAH, I DO. YEAH.
THIS IS DEFINITELY KEY.

WITHOUT THAT,
WE'RE IN BIG TROUBLE.

Narrator: A SMALL CREW
WILL CAPTURE THE 21-DAY JOURNEY

WITH CLEAR INSTRUCTION
NOT TO INTERVENE

UNLESS THERE IS
A MEDICAL EMERGENCY.

IN ADDITION, SHANE AND KIM ARE
PROVIDED WITH HANDHELD CAMERAS

TO DOCUMENT
THEIR OWN EXPERIENCE.

ALL RIGHT.
LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A MAP.

SHANE AND KIM WERE ALSO GIVEN

A PRIMITIVE MAP
OF THEIR LOCATION.

IT SHOWS AN AREA OF STEEP
VALLEYS COVERED IN RAINFOREST

AND CRISSCROSSED
BY RIVERS AND STREAMS.

USING THE SUN TO NAVIGATE
THROUGH THIS DENSE JUNGLE,

THEY NEED TO PICK A SUITABLE
PLACE TO CAMP NEAR A RIVERBED.

THIS WILL GIVE THEM A SAFE PLACE
FOR SHELTER, PROVIDE WATER,

AND OPPORTUNITIES
FOR GETTING FOOD.

AT THE END OF THEIR 21 DAYS,
THEY FACE A GRUELING JOURNEY

BATTLING THROUGH
FORMIDABLE TERRAIN

TO A WATERFALL
SEVERAL MILES DOWNSTREAM.

THIS WILL LEAD THEM
TO THEIR EXTRACTION POINT.

DO YOU HAVE
A LOT OF EXPERIENCE

WITH ORIENTEERING
AND STUFF LIKE THAT?

YEAH, BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN
IN AN ENVIRONMENT

WHERE I CAN'T SEE
ANYTHING ABOVE ME.

Shane: SO, PROBLEM IS,
IS IN THIS JUNGLE,

WE COULD BE 100 FEET AWAY
FROM ANY KIND OF RIVER,

AND IT WOULD BE THREE DAYS
TO FIND IT.

SO THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT

THAT WE TRY TO GET THAT SPOT
THAT'S ON THAT MAP.

AS PART
OF THEIR SELECTION PROCESS,

SHANE AND KIM HAVE UNDERGONE

RIGOROUS PHYSICAL
AND PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING.

THEIR OVERALL SURVIVAL
ASSESSMENT HAS BEEN EVALUATED

BY EXPERTS ACCORDING
TO THREE CATEGORIES --

SKILL, EXPERIENCE, MENTAL.

SHANE'S EXPERIENCE
AS AN OUTDOORSMAN SCORES WELL,

BUT HIS INTOLERANCE
TOWARDS YOUNGER PEOPLE

COULD BE A MAJOR OBSTACLE.

KIM HAS
A STRONG MENTAL ATTITUDE.

HER SURVIVAL SKILLS ARE GOOD
BUT NOT PROVEN.

SHANE AND KIM ARE GIVEN

AN OVERALL PRIMITIVE
SURVIVAL RATING, OR PSR.

SHANE'S PRIMITIVE
SURVIVAL RATING IS SET AT 7.6.

KIM'S IS 5.8.

OUR EXPERTS
WILL REASSESS THEIR PSRs

AT THE END
OF THE 21-DAY CHALLENGE.

WILL THEIR RATINGS IMPROVE
OR DECLINE?

YEAH, THIS WAY.
[ SIGHS ]

[ MONKEY CHATTERING ]

Shane:
THIS TERRAIN IS INTENSE.

JUST THE DIVERSITY
AND THE DENSITY OF THIS PLACE

IS JUST AMAZING.

I READ A STORY OF A GUY
BEING LOST INSIDE THIS JUNGLE,

AND HE MOVED THREE MILES
OVER FIVE DAYS.

Kim: WOW.

Shane: I'M JUST TRYING
TO KEEP MY BEARINGS STRAIGHT.

OOH! OH, MY GOD.
OH, ANTS.

OHH.
YEAH. YOU GOOD?

OH, MY GOD.
YEAH, LET'S GO.

GO, GO.
UH, WE HAVE CUTTER ANTS.

YAH! YOU *BLEEP*

THAT HURT LIKE
YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE.

THE THING WITH THE ANTS IS THAT
IF YOU CROSS THEIR PATH --

THEY ARE BITERS.
AND IT HURTS.

I ALREADY GOT BIT
BY THEM.

THEY'RE VERY PAINFUL.
AND THESE ARE THE SMALLER ONES.

[ LAUGHS ]
YEAH.

SO, KIDDO, WHAT DO YOU LIKE
ABOUT OUTDOORS?

EVERYTHING.

TELL ME
ABOUT MINNESOTA.

IT'S COLD.

[ SIGHS ]

Shane: MY FIRST IMPRESSION
OF MY TEAMMATE

IS TYPICAL
OF THE 25-YEAR-OLD GENERATION.

SHE DON'T GIVE A *BLEEP*
ABOUT ANYBODY ELSE.

I'VE ASKED HER MULTIPLE
QUESTIONS ABOUT HER.

SHE HASN'T SPENT
ONE SECOND OF IOTA

TRYING TO LEARN ANYTHING
ABOUT ME.

IT'S FINE. IT'S 21 DAYS.
I'LL JUST CONTINUE BEING HUMBLE.

Shane: I AM CONSIDERED CRAZY
WHERE I LIVE.

REALLY?
YEAH.

MY PARENTS KICKED ME OUT OF THE
HOUSE WHEN I WAS 6 YEARS OLD.

WHAT?!

I SPENT 13 YEARS IN 5 FOSTER
HOMES AND 4 INSTITUTIONS.

WOW.
ARE YOU OKAY?

I WAS AN ANGRY BASTARD
IN MY 20s.

SHANE TALKS A LOT. YEAH.

HE'S ADMITTED TO HAVING
ANGER ISSUES AS A YOUNGER MAN.

I WONDER HOW THAT WILL PAN OUT
IN THE FUTURE.

[ CLICKS TONGUE ]

WE HAVEN'T VEERED OFF
THE DIRECTION TOO MUCH,

SO WE'VE GOT TO
BE GETTING CLOSE.

KIDDO?
YEAH?

STEPPED RIGHT OVER HIM.
WOW.

Kim: IT'S JUST A BABY.

BABY? THAT THING'S
PROBABLY THREE FEET LONG.

HIS COIL IS FOUR INCHES. WHAT
DO YOU GOT, SIX COILS THERE?

THAT'S A NASTY,
NASTY SNAKE.

Kim:
WE SAW A FER-DE-LANCE.

IF YOU GET BIT BY ONE OF THOSE,
WORST-CASE SCENARIO IS DEATH.

THAT'LL SOBER YOU UP QUICK.

I DON'T EVEN WANT TO THINK
ABOUT HOW CLOSE I CAME
TO STEPPING ON HIM.

Shane: OUR EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
WAS BITTEN BY A FER-DE-LANCE,

AND THIS JUST BRINGS TO MIND
HOW AWARE WE HAVE TO BE.

THOSE SNAKES ARE NASTY.

WE'VE GOT FOUR HOURS
OF DAYLIGHT LEFT.

HEY, LISTEN.

THAT RIVER?

I'D SAY THAT WAY.

YOU MEAN -- [ LAUGHS ]
RIGHT DOWN THERE.

WOW.
THAT'S A WICKED DROP-OFF.

Kim: LET'S GET TO IT
'CAUSE I'M THIRSTY.

IF YOU SLIP,
JUST GIVE ME A HEADS-UP

THAT YOU'RE COMING
DOWN ON TOP OF ME.

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

WHOO!
ARE YOU OKAY?

I GOT A SPIKE IN ME,
BUT THAT'S -- I THINK.

[ LAUGHS ]
[ GRUNTS ]

[ GROANS ]

HOLY *BLEEP*

WHEW!
YOU OKAY?

I'D BE CAREFUL
ABOUT THAT ONE.

OH, MY GOSH.

Shane: IF I HAD SNEAKERS ON, I'D
BE RUNNING DOWN THERE RIGHT NOW.

Kim:
IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL! WOW.

Shane:
BEAUTIFUL, BUT I'M EXHAUSTED,

AND WE STILL HAVE A TREMENDOUS
AMOUNT OF WORK TO DO.

LET'S JUST GO UP HERE
AROUND THIS BEND

AND THEN ASSESS WHICH BEACH
WE WANT TO BE AT.

LEAD THE WAY, KIDDO.

I'M GONNA HEAD OVER THAT WAY

TO TRY TO GET
SOME DRINKING WATER.

DON'T CUP WATER
WITH YOUR HANDS.

YOUR HANDS
HAVE BEEN ON EVERYTHING.

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR WATER THAT'S
GOING OVER TREMENDOUS SURFACES.

IF IT'S FOAMY LIKE THIS,

IT'S OKAY BECAUSE THE BUBBLES
ARE POPPING INSTANTLY.

IF THIS FOAM IS STAYING,
DON'T DRINK IT.

Kim: MONKEY! AH!

LOOK AT THE MONKEYS!

[ LAUGHS ]

I THINK THEY'RE SPIDER MONKEYS.

[ MONKEY CHATTERING ]

[ LAUGHS ]
HE SEEMS PRETTY ANGRY.

HE'S PROBABLY UPSET
AT OUR PRESENCE HERE.

Shane: I DON'T KNOW
WHERE THEIR HOUSE IS.

BUT MAYBE THEY JUST DON'T
LIKE PEOPLE. I CAN RELATE.

Kim: [ GRUNTS ]

SHANE. LOOK.

THIS IS PERFECT.
DO YOU LIKE THIS SPOT?

YEAH, WE'RE GOOD.

IS THAT A BULLET ANT?

YEAH, IT IS A BULLET ANT.

THAT'S THE REASON WHY I WANT
TO GET OFF THE GROUND.

THERE'S GONNA BE THOUSANDS OF
EVERYTHING MOVING AROUND HERE,

SOME DANGEROUS PREDATORS,
SOME NOT-DANGEROUS PREDATORS.

SO WE WANT TO BE OFF THE GROUND

TO TRY TO HELP ALLEVIATE
THE STRESS OF THAT.

LET'S FIND PIECES
WITH Y's IN THE TOP.

THEN WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT LASHING IT INSANELY

TO KEEP IT ELEVATED.

DO YOU KNOW
WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT?

I AM VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THE
PREDATORS THAT ARE IN THIS AREA.

GOD WILLING, NOTHING DANGEROUS

WILL COME IN AND TAG US
WHILE WE'RE TRYING TO SLEEP.

Kim:
I WANT TO MAKE A FIRE.

I HEAR YOU.

IF WE GET THIS TODAY --
SUCCESSFUL DAY.

[ BLOWING ]

YAY! YAY, SHANE!

YOU ROCK, KIDDO.
YOU ROCK.

Kim:
HE KEEPS CALLING ME "KIDDO."

HE SEEMS TO HAVE A PATERNAL
THING GOING ON TOWARDS ME.

BUT AT LEAST FOR NOW,
I DON'T MIND IT

BECAUSE I NEED
SOME MORAL SUPPORT,

AND HE NEEDS SOME MORAL SUPPORT,

AND IT'S WORKING OUT.

THIS IS, LIKE, AWESOME.

IF WE DO GET COLD,
THAT MIGHT BE A LITTLE AWKWARD,

US BOTH BEING NAKED, SPOONING.

MAYBE I'LL BE THE BIG SPOON.
[ LAUGHS ]

[ THUNDER CRASHES ]

THIS IS A LOT
OF RAIN.

AAH! [ GROANS ]

SHANE ALMOST DIED.

Shane: IT'S THE SAME SNAKE
THAT BIT OUR EXECUTIVE PRODUCER,

AND I'M GONNA KILL HIM.

THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT I'M GLAD

I HAVE NO PARENTS,
NO WIFE, AND NO KIDS.

'CAUSE IF I DIE,
NOBODY GIVES A *BLEEP* ABOUT ME.

WHY IS THE COSTA RICAN JUNGLE
SO RAINY AND WET AND COLD?

IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO
BE THIS WAY.

Narrator:
SHANE AND KIM HAVE TAKEN ON

A 21-DAY SURVIVAL CHALLENGE
IN THE COSTA RICAN RAINFOREST.

USING A PRIMITIVE MAP
AND THE SUN FOR NAVIGATION,

THEY HAVE HIKED
THROUGH DENSE JUNGLE

TO A RIVER
WHERE THEY'VE MADE CAMP.

JUST 24 HOURS IN,
THEY ARE BEING HAMMERED

BY FIERCE,
UNEXPECTED RAINSTORMS,

WHICH CAN LAST FOR WEEKS
IN THE COSTA RICAN JUNGLE.

UNPROTECTED
IN THEIR MAKESHIFT SHELTER,

THEY ARE NOW AT RISK
OF HYPOTHERMIA

IF THEY CAN'T FIND FOOD
TO CREATE MUCH-NEEDED ENERGY.

I'M SO *BLEEP* COLD.

THIS IS A LOT OF RAIN.

CANOPY'S LEAKING.

I GOT TO GO OUT THERE
AND CUT SOME TREES

TO PUT ON TOP OF THE CANOPY
TO TRY TO CUT THE RAIN DOWN.

Kim: EVEN WHEN
IT'S PISSING RAIN ON US,

I APPRECIATE
HOW HARDWORKING SHANE IS,

SO I TRY TO KEEP THE FIRE GOING
SO THAT HE CAN WARM UP.

BUT WE HAD TO MOVE IT
UNDER THE SHELTER

TO KEEP IT OUT OF THE RAIN.

I WISH WE COULD HAVE IT BIGGER

SO THAT IT WOULD GIVE OFF
MORE HEAT,

BUT FINDING DRY WOOD
IS TOUGH HERE.

AND I'M WEAVING BOTTOMS
FOR MYSELF AND SHANE.

Shane: WE'RE DEFINITELY LOSING
A LOT OF BODY HEAT.

Kim:
IT'S GONNA TAKE US A WHILE

BEFORE WE GET
TO "SUR-THRIVAL" MODE.

IF WE DON'T GET SOME SUNLIGHT,
WE AIN'T NEVER GETTING THERE.

IT'LL BE A BATTLE
THE ENTIRE THREE WEEKS.

[ THUNDER RUMBLES ]

IT'S REALLY HARD TO STAY WARM

WHEN IT'S WET AND COLD
AND YOU HAVE NO CLOTHES.

I'M REALLY HUNGRY,
AND I WANT TO GET SOME FOOD.

Shane: THE CONDITIONS
ARE SO PROBLEMATIC
FOR HUNTING ANYTHING.

IT'S WET AND MUDDY.
ALL I'M TRYING TO DO IS SURVIVE.

THIS WOULD MAKE THE THIRD NIGHT
THAT IT'S JUST POURED ON US.

I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET WARM.

HOPING MY BODY
WILL ACCLIMATIZE SOON

SO I CAN STOP SHIVERING
ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT.

Kim: [ Voice breaking ]
IT'S SO FRUSTRATING.

I MEAN, I GET LITTLE TO NO SLEEP

SO THAT I CAN KEEP
THE FIRE GOING, AND IT GOES OUT.

I NEED TO MAKE MY PARTNER
FEEL COMFORTABLE

BECAUSE SHE'S OVERWHELMED.

AND IF I'VE GOT TO SUFFER,
THEN I'VE GOT TO SUFFER.

I JUST HOPE TO GOD
THAT I DON'T GET SICK

'CAUSE I'M REALLY
WORKING MY ASS OFF.

[ GRUNTS ]

WAY TO GO.

IF THE SUN DOESN'T COME OUT
AND START DRYING THINGS UP,

WE'RE IN TROUBLE.

[ GROANS ]

AGREED.

[ THUNDER RUMBLES ]

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

I'VE SEEN A CLEAR, BLUE SKY
THIS WHOLE TIME.

THE SUN IS OUT.

ALL OF THE COLD-BLOODED THINGS
ARE GOING TO NEED TO WARM UP,

SO WE'RE HOPING THAT THEY'RE
GOING TO COME OUT ON THE ROCKS

AND BATHE IN THE SUN.

AND WHEN THEY DO THAT,

WE'LL BE THERE
WITH A STICK AND A MACHETE.

WE'RE BOTH HUNGRY.

WE SHOULD GET FOOD.

DO WHAT
YOU GOT TO DO, OKAY?

YOU NEED THE MACHETE?
NOPE. YOU CAN TAKE IT.

WHAT ABOUT --
WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?

I'M WORKING ON A ROOF
AND THE SIDES.

THERE'S ENOUGH SCRAP AROUND
HERE, I CAN WORK ON IT.

OKAY.
WELL, I MEAN -- ALL RIGHT.

SHANE AND I DEFINITELY
HAVE DIFFERENT PRIORITIES.

HE'S REALLY FOCUSED ON MAKING
THE SHELTER WARMTH-TIGHT,

AND I AM MORE FOCUSED
ON TRYING TO FIND FOOD FOR US

BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T EATEN
ANYTHING SINCE WE GOT HERE.

[ BIRDS CALLING ]

THOSE BIRD ALARMS
ARE ALARMING AT US.

AND EVERYTHING LISTENS
TO THOSE BIRD ALARMS,

AND IT KIND OF MAKES ME
FEEL HOPELESS

'CAUSE I'M NOT GONNA SEE
ANYTHING THAT I HOPE TO HUNT

IF THEY KNOW I'M COMING
BEFORE I EVEN AM CLOSE.

Shane: I'M JUST GONNA SHORE UP
THAT LEAN-TO

AND FREAKING SLEEP ALL DAY, MAN,

'CAUSE I JUST CAN'T DO ANYTHING
OUT HERE.

I CAN'T REALLY HUNT.
I CAN'T TRACK ANYTHING.

[ SIGHS ]

THERE'S JUST MUD.
IT'S JUST MUD EVERYWHERE.

[ MONKEY HOOTING ]

HOWLER MONKEYS.

I'M NOT GONNA GO NEAR HIS TREE,

PISS HIM OFF,
HAVE HIM COME DOWN.

HE'D KILL ME FASTER
THAN I COULD DEFEND MYSELF.

THIS IS THEIR ENVIRONMENT,
NOT MINE,

AND THEY ARE A LOT STRONGER
AND MEANER THAN WE ARE.

[ HOOTING CONTINUES ]

Kim: I'M TRYING TO CATCH
SOMETHING TO EAT.

BACK HOME, I HUNT,
AND I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS.

BUT IF WE DON'T GET FOOD IN US,

WE'RE NOT GONNA HAVE
ENOUGH ENERGY TO, LIKE, SURVIVE.

I CAN'T CATCH ANYTHING.

SOME MEAT WOULD BE NICE.

PREPARING FOR THIS, I THOUGHT OF
HOW MUCH FOOD THERE IS OUT HERE.

I WAS EXPECTING TO BE HEALTHIER
THAN I AM RIGHT NOW.

Shane: I'M JUST SO COLD.

MY BODY'S JUST SPENDING
THE WHOLE DAY TRYING TO WARM UP.

Kim:
HOW YOU DOING, SHANE?

TRYING TO GET WARM.

SO EXHAUSTED.

Kim: I DON'T KNOW
WHAT'S GOING ON WITH SHANE.

HE HASN'T REALLY DONE ANYTHING
ALL DAY.

I THINK HIS MORALE
IS JUST REALLY DOWN.

I FEEL LIKE NOT EATING
IS AFFECTING HOW HE'S FEELING.

[ MONKEYS HOOTING ]

THAT HOWLER MONKEY IS VERY UPSET
THAT WE'RE HERE.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW STRONG THEY ARE?

THEY'RE NOT VERY BIG.

THEY'RE, LIKE, SMALLER
THAN A RACCOON.

THOSE THINGS ARE A LOT STRONGER
THAN YOU THINK.

I HOPE ONE OF THOSE
FALLS IN THE RIVER.

I'D LEAP IN AFTER IT
AND HAVE IT FOR FOOD.

YOU KILL ONE, WHO KNOWS WHAT
THE FAMILY'S GONNA DO TO YOU?

NO WAY WE'D BE ABLE
TO FIGHT OFF FIVE OR SIX OF THEM

IF THEY GOT THAT MAD.

I'M CONCERNED
THAT SHANE IS COLD,

AND IT'S JUST REALLY SCREWING
WITH HIS MENTAL STATE.

WELL, KIDDO,
NOW THE HARD PART BEGINS.

HUNGER SETS IN.

IT MAKES US CRANKY.

CRANKY BITCHES.

WELL, LET'S REALLY FOCUS
ON BEING KIND TO ONE ANOTHER

BECAUSE IF WE'RE NOT, IT'S JUST
GONNA MAKE EVERYTHING HARDER.

WE'RE A TEAM.
WE CAN DO THIS.

Shane: TODAY, I WOKE UP,
AND I'M STARVING,

SO I'M GOING TO TRY AND FIND
FOOD DEEPER INTO THE JUNGLE.

IT IS "SURVIVAL," RIGHT?

NOT "DIE"?

THERE'S SO MUCH WILDLIFE
AROUND HERE.

THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING
TO EAT.

IT'S A GRUB.
HOPEFULLY, THERE'S MORE.

THERE'S AN ARMADILLO HOLE HERE.

IN ORDER TO FIND OUT
IF THIS IS A LIVING HOLE OR NOT,

WE SHOULD PUT A LEAF OVER IT
AND COME BACK IN TWO DAYS

AND SEE IF HE'S MOVED THE LEAF
OR NOT.

BUT IT'S LIKE ANYTHING ELSE.

THE JUNGLE DOESN'T GIVE IT
TO YOU.

YOU HAVE TO EARN EVERYTHING.

[ MONKEY HOOTS ]

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

[ EXHALES SHARPLY ]

YOU SEE THAT?

THERE'S A FOUR-FOOT SNAKE
RIGHT THERE.

IT'S THE SAME SNAKE THAT BIT
OUR EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, STEVE,

AND I'M GONNA KILL HIM.

YOU SEE HOW BIG HE IS?

I'D APPRECIATE
IF YOU WOULD BACK UP, OKAY?

'CAUSE IF I DON'T GET HIM, HE'S
GONNA BE COMING AFTER SOMEBODY.

I'VE GOT ONE CHANCE TO GET HIM
BEFORE HE GETS ME.

Shane: I HAVE TO GO FURTHER
INTO THIS JUNGLE EVERY DAY

TO TRY AND FIND FOOD, WHICH
SCARES THE *BLEEP* OUT OF ME.

Narrator:
SURVIVAL EXPERTS KIM AND SHANE

HAVE GONE OVER A WEEK
WITHOUT ANY FOOD

ON THEIR 21-DAY COSTA RICAN
SURVIVAL CHALLENGE.

BEFORE THEY EMBARKED
ON THIS MISSION,

THEY WERE ASSESSED
BY SURVIVAL EXPERTS

AND EACH GIVEN A PRIMITIVE
SURVIVAL RATING, OR PSR.

THEY WILL BE REASSESSED
AFTER THE CHALLENGE ENDS.

WITH MALNUTRITION
NOW SETTING IN,

TEMPERS ARE SHORT,
ENERGY LEVELS ARE LOW,

WHICH COULD AFFECT THEIR ABILITY
TO SURVIVE.

ALONE ON A HUNT, SHANE
HAS ENCOUNTERED A FER-DE-LANCE,

ONE OF THE MOST DEADLY SNAKES
ON THE PLANET.

Shane:
THAT'S A BIG *BLEEP* SNAKE.

Narrator: THE FER-DE-LANCE
IS EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

AND ACCOUNTS FOR MORE THAN 70%
OF SNAKE ATTACKS IN COSTA RICA.

Shane:
IT'S THE SAME SNAKE THAT BIT
OUR EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, STEVE,

AND I'M GONNA KILL HIM.

Narrator:
THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN CAN RENDER
THEIR VICTIM UNCONSCIOUS.

THE HEMOTOXIC VENOM

CAUSES SEVERE INTERNAL BLEEDING
AND ROTS FLESH.

WITHOUT IMMEDIATE TREATMENT,

DEATH CAN FOLLOW
WITHIN 72 HOURS.

Shane: I'VE GOT ONE CHANCE
TO GET HIM BEFORE HE GETS ME.

IF I CAN PIN HIS BODY,
I'VE GOT A FIGHTING CHANCE.

I'D APPRECIATE
IF YOU WOULD BACK UP, OKAY?

'CAUSE IF I DON'T GET HIM, HE'S
GONNA BE COMING AFTER SOMEBODY.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SPEED
AND HOW BIG YOUR BALLS ARE.

LOOK HOW NASTY HE IS.

DIE, *BLEEP*

[ GRUNTING ]

*BLEEP*

HIS POISON IS EVERYWHERE.
HE IS PISSED.

I'VE GOT HIS HEAD PINNED
PRETTY DAMN GOOD, THOUGH.

[ GRUNTS ]

[ BREATHING SLOWLY ]

HE'S NOT BITING ANYONE NOW.

TELL STEVE I SAID HI.

[ THUNDER CRASHES ]

AW, COME ON!

YOU GOT A SNAKE!

FER-DE-LANCE.

WOW!

Shane: MY HEART IS STILL
*BLEEP* RACING.

ARE YOU *BLEEP* KIDDING ME?
HE'S GOT TO BE FIVE FEET LONG.

NOT VERY BIG.

SOUNDS ALL WELL AND GOOD
FOR YOU TO SAY,

BUT THAT'S A NASTY
*BLEEP* ANIMAL

TO BE PLAYING WITH
OUT THERE.

WHEN I GET BETTER
AT KILLING SNAKES,

I MIGHT GO AFTER
A PIT VIPER.

Shane:
I'M DOING EVERYTHING I CAN

TO TRY TO KEEP THE GIRL HAPPY,

AND THE FIRST THING SHE SAYS
WHEN I GET BACK

IS THE SNAKE IS TOO SMALL?

[ THUNDER CRASHES ]

I KILLED IT.
YOU CAN SKIN IT AND COOK IT.

Kim: I'M GONNA GO DOWN
BY THE RIVER TO SKIN IT.

THE HEART IS STILL PUMPING AWAY.

THOSE ARE THE TASTIEST PARTS.

I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD
TO HAVING SOME PROTEIN IN ME.

I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE
WHAT SOME OF THIS IS,

BUT I'M GONNA EAT IT.

I'M VERY THANKFUL
TO GET THE SNAKE.

THE JUNGLE
IS FEEDING US.

EVEN A DOG GETS LUCKY
ONCE IN A WHILE.

WE DEFINITELY NEEDED A MEAL
TONIGHT.

THOSE THINGS
ARE MOSTLY BONE.

Kim: I DID EAT THE HEART
AND WHAT I THINK

WAS MAYBE THE LIVER
OR THE LUNGS,

AND IT TASTED DELICIOUS.

IT TASTED LIKE HOT DOG.

Shane: I'M TRYING TO HUNT.

I'M DOING EVERYTHING I CAN
TO TRY TO KEEP THE GIRL HAPPY,

AND SHE'S JUST VERY DIFFICULT,
AND I JUST NEED SOME TIME AWAY.

Kim: IT'S DEFINITELY BEEN A FEW
HOURS SINCE I'VE SEEN SHANE.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE HE WENT,

BUT I THINK HE MAY HAVE
JUST WANTED REALLY ALONE TIME.

LAST NIGHT, HE JUST
KIND OF WENT OFF ON A RANT

ABOUT HOW WOMEN ARE REALLY WEAK,

AND I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED

THAT MAYBE HE THINKS
I'M NOT CONTRIBUTING AS MUCH

BECAUSE I SPEND SO MUCH TIME
ON THE FIRE.

BUT MAKING THE FIRE
TAKES A LOT OF ENERGY,

BUT IT'S JUST NOT VERY OBVIOUS
TO HIM, I DON'T THINK.

Shane:
THERE'S A PIG UP THERE.

I WATCHED HIM RUN UP THE SIDE.

SO I'M GONNA GO UP,
AND MAYBE I CAN COME DOWN AROUND

AND COME IN FLANK
WHEN HE GOES BY ME.

YEAH, WHY AM I DOING THIS?

JUST WASTE OF *BLEEP* ENERGY.
BUT I'LL TRY.

ANY LUCK, I'LL SLIP AND FALL

AND TEAR MY *BLEEP* BODY APART
SO I CAN GO HOME.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. YEP.

AAH!

[ GRUNTING ]

[ COUGHING ]

OH, MY GOD.

THAT IS ONE *BLEEP* DROP.

OH, MY GOD.
THAT *BLEEP* HURTS.

THERE WAS NOTHING TO HOLD ON TO.

I TRIED TO GRAB ROOTS,
AND THEY JUST BROKE.

OW.

[ COUGHS ]

OH, MY GOD.

MOVING THROUGH THIS JUNGLE
IS IMPOSSIBLE.

I DIDN'T EVEN MAKE 100 YARDS,
AND I ALMOST DIED.

Kim: YOU EXHAUSTED?

I WAS TRYING
TO COME UP BEHIND A PIG,

AND I SLID OFF THE SLOPE.

YOU SAW A PECCARY?

KIM, THEY MOVE FASTER THAN
YOU AND I COULD EVER IMAGINE.

HOW BIG WAS IT?

OH, THAT'S TINY.

IF I DIDN'T CATCH THAT ROOT,

YOU'D BE FINDING ME IN THERE
*BLEEP* SOMEWHERE DEAD.

REALLY?
LITERALLY.

HOW FAR WAS THE DROP?

ABOUT 120 FEET
TO A ROCK BOTTOM.

IT WASN'T ABOVE THE RIVER?

YEAH. THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY
MEAN THE RIVER WAS MY BOTTOM.

OKAY. YEAH.
THAT'S WHAT I WAS TRYING TO --

I'M JUST TRYING
TO VISUALIZE IT.

IF YOU WERE
ABOVE THE RIVER --

FORGET IT.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

Shane: THAT'S JUST
*BLEEP* BEAUTIFUL.

SHE THINKS I'M LYING
WHEN I SLID OFF THE *BLEEP*

NEXT TIME,
PUT ME WITH AN ADULT, WILL YOU?

I FEEL LIKE I'M BACK HOME
WITH MY PARENTS.

EVERYTHING I SAY,
I'M JUST FULL OF *BLEEP*

SHE'S SUPPOSED TO
BE SUPPORTING ME.

AND SHE'S LIKE,
"WHAT? REALLY? NO."

SHE'S A 22-YEAR-OLD PERSON
WHO DOESN'T GIVE A *BLEEP*

ABOUT ANYTHING
UNLESS IT REVOLVES AROUND HER.

Kim:
WHAT I'M LEARNING ABOUT SHANE --

WHEN HE'S FRUSTRATED OR SCARED
OR ANY NEGATIVE EMOTION,

HE'S GOT TO VENT IT
WITH A LOT OF PHYSICAL EXERTION,

WHICH MAY NOT BE THE BEST TIME
FOR IT

BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE
A WHOLE LOT OF FOOD.

BUT I'M TRAINED

IN A LOT OF COMMUNICATION
AND PEACEMAKING TACTICS.

I KIND OF COMPARTMENTALIZE
THE BATTLES

THAT I WANT TO CHOOSE
WITH SHANE.

Shane:
I'M JUST COLLECTING MORE WOOD

BECAUSE KIM BURNS MORE WOOD
THAN I WOULD APPRECIATE.

AND I HAVE ASKED HER
TO BE MORE CONSERVATIVE,

BUT SHE JUST BURNS
WHATEVER SHE WANTS.

IS SHE GOING TO GET THE WOOD?
NO.

I DON'T GIVE A *BLEEP*
I'M EXHAUSTED.

Kim: WE'VE BEEN OUT HERE
FOR ALMOST TWO WEEKS,

AND I STILL DON'T KNOW
WHAT'S GOING ON WITH SHANE.

AND I THINK
HE'S JUST REALLY EXHAUSTED,

SO I LEFT HIM
SLEEPING IN THE SHELTER.

HOLY *BLEEP* HOLY *BLEEP*

SHANE! SHANE! WHERE ARE YOU?
SHANE! SHANE!

[ COUGHING ]

SHANE!
GET OUT OF THE SHELTER!

SHANE, WHERE ARE YOU?
GET OUT OF THE SHELTER, SHANE!

Kim: SHANE! SHANE!
[ COUGHING ]

Narrator:
NIGHT 14. COSTA RICA.

KIM HAS LEFT THE SHELTER
AND THEIR FIRE UNATTENDED

WHILE SHANE SLEEPS ON.

UPON HER RETURN, KIM IS
CONFRONTED BY A WALL OF FLAMES.

Kim: [ COUGHING ]
SHANE! SHANE!

SHANE, WHERE ARE YOU?!
GET OUT OF THE SHELTER!

SHANE!

Shane: AAH! AAH!
[ COUGHING ]

Kim: KEEP MOVING.

Shane: [ COUGHING ]

Kim: YOU OKAY?

Shane: I ALMOST DIED.

KISS MY *BLEEP* ASS.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU CREATE A FIRE
UNDER YOUR PLATFORM.

EVENTUALLY, IT'LL JUST GO UP
LIKE A MATCH LIKE OURS JUST DID.

AND SHANE WAS IN IT.

SO, THIS IS WHAT'S LEFT OF
OUR HOME AFTER IT BURNED DOWN.

THE ENTIRE CANOPY COLLAPSED
WHERE I WAS LAYING

AND JUST LIT UP LIKE FIRE.

Kim: SHANE ALMOST DIED.

IT'S JUST A VERY INCREDIBLY
SCARY MOMENT

TO BE WOKEN UP
SO ABRUPTLY LIKE THAT

KNOWING THAT I ALMOST DIED.

HE WAS LITERALLY SECONDS AWAY

FROM GETTING SEVERE BURNS
ALL OVER HIS BODY.

Shane: THESE ARE THE DAYS
THAT I'M GLAD

I HAVE NO PARENTS, NO FAMILY,
NO WIFE, AND NO KIDS.

'CAUSE IF I DIE,
NOBODY GIVES A *BLEEP* ABOUT ME.

[ COUGHING ]

Kim:
I'M KIND OF MENTALLY STRUGGLING.

I DON'T WANT TO BE HERE ANYMORE.

Shane: I CAN'T WAIT
FOR THIS TO BE OVER.

THIS IS ONE *BLEEP*
NASTY, NASTY PLACE.

IT IS RELENTLESS,

AND IT JUST TAKES
EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT.

Kim: IT FEELS KIND OF LIKE

WE'VE USED UP ALL OUR WELCOME
HERE IN THE JUNGLE,

AND THIS FIRE WAS SORT OF LIKE,

"YEAH, IT'S TIME
FOR YOU TO LEAVE."

I THINK WE SHOULD BOTH
GO SIT IN THE SUNSHINE.

IT'LL MAKE US FEEL
SO GOOD.

I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

I'M JUST GONNA GO DOWN
AND SIT ON A SUNNY ROCK.

Kim: I'M JUST FEELING LIKE
I'M JUST DONE HERE.

BUT WHENEVER I GET THAT FEELING,
I THINK OF MY MOM.

SHE SAID, YOU KNOW, "IF YOU
START SOMETHING, DON'T QUIT."

AND I AIN'T GONNA QUIT.

I SAW A TURTLE ON THIS BIG LOG
OVER THERE.

SO I'M GONNA SLIP IN THE WATER

AND TRY TO SNEAK UP ON IT.

YEAH!
I GOT A *BLEEP* TURTLE!

I GOT ONE!

THIS MORNING,
WE LITERALLY HAD NO HOME.

AFTER CATCHING THIS TURTLE,
I FEEL REALLY GOOD.

THIS TURTLE REALLY IS, LIKE,
THE ICING ON THE CAKE.

YOU GOT TO GET
THAT SHELL OFF.

Shane: THE TURTLE IS AWESOME.
THAT'S TWO DAYS OF GOOD FOOD.

I'M STILL PISSED OFF
OVER THE SHELTER BURNING DOWN,

BUT I AM THANKFUL
FOR HER GETTING US FOOD.

NICE CATCH, KIM.

THERE'S A LOT OF FOOD
IN THIS THING.

Kim: CATCHING THIS TURTLE
MEANS SUCCESS.

IT GIVES ME HOPE THAT MAYBE WE
ACTUALLY CAN SURVIVE OUT HERE.

Shane: I'M GETTING SOME ENERGY.
FEELING A LITTLE BIT STRONGER.

MY BODY IS REALIZING
IT JUST ATE MEAT.

WOULD YOU RATHER STILL HAVE
OUR PREVIOUS SHELTER

OR HAVE THE TURTLE?

I WOULD RATHER BE EATING
WHAT I'M EATING NOW

AND GONE THROUGH WHAT
I WENT THROUGH LAST NIGHT.

Kim: FOOD JUST MAKES
EVERYTHING FEEL BETTER.

OH, THIS MAKES ME FEEL
SO GOOD.

ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE FORGIVEN
FOR BURNING ME OUT LAST NIGHT.

NO, I'M JUST KIDDING.
[ LAUGHS ]

OHH!

I'M HAVING HOT FLASHES
RIGHT NOW.

I DON'T FEEL VERY GOOD.

I SUGGEST YOU DRINK WATER.
MAYBE THAT'LL HELP.

Kim: YESTERDAY,
I ATE PART OF THE TURTLE,

AND MY STOMACH HAS BEEN GURGLING
ALL NIGHT.

KIM IS VERY SICK, VOMITING
AND THROWING UP PROFUSELY.

I CERTAINLY CAN SEE
HER BODY BREAKING DOWN.

I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

Kim:
I'VE NEVER HAD FOOD POISONING.

THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO
FOR FOOD POISONING.

I'VE HAD FOOD POISONING
SIX OR SEVEN TIMES.

THE FIRST TIME I HAD IT,
I HAD IT FOR FOUR DAYS,

AND THAT WAS OFF OF CRAB.

[ GROANS ]

I DON'T THINK I CAN *BLEEP*
OR THROW UP ANYMORE.

I DON'T THINK
I HAVE ANYTHING LEFT.

THAT'S THE WORST PART
ABOUT FOOD POISONING.

WHAT?

YOUR BODY IS GETTING RID
OF EVERYTHING IT ATE,
SO THERE'S NOTHING IN IT.

MY STOMACH CRAMPS ARE
JUST REALLY, REALLY PAINFUL.

I'M JUST REALLY, REALLY WEAK,
FEELING REALLY DOWN

BECAUSE I KNOW
I CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

YOU GOT SOME ENERGY
TO STACK STUFF, OR NO?

NOT RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT,
IF THAT'S OKAY.

I'M SORRY.
YEAH.

MY STOMACH
STILL REALLY HURTS.

I'M SURE IT DOES.

I AM STARTING TO GET CONCERNED

ABOUT BEING ABLE
TO TAKE CARE OF BOTH OF US.

IT'S GONNA BE VERY DIFFICULT
FOR ME TO COLLECT FIREWOOD

AND TEND THE FIRE AND
WORK ON THE LODGING EVERY DAY

AND THINGS LIKE THAT
ALL BY MYSELF.

I'M RUNNING DOWN WITH ENERGY,
AND I CAN'T SUPPORT TWO PEOPLE.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT.

Kim: [ SIGHS ]

I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER
THIS MORNING.

Shane: STARTING TO GET
A LITTLE ENERGY.

WELL, A LOT MORE THAN I HAVE
IN THE PAST COUPLE DAYS.

Kim: I THINK I'M BETTER NOW,
JUST WITH HYDRATING MYSELF

AND PURGING MY BODY
OF WHATEVER WAS IN THERE.

THANKS.

Shane: SHE SEEMS TO BE DOING
MUCH BETTER.

AND I'M VERY HAPPY.

I CERTAINLY CANNOT DO A DEAD MAN
AND CARRY HER OUT

WITH THE ENERGY DEPLETION
THAT I'M EXERTING EVERY DAY.

Kim: I KNOW THAT SHANE HAS
BEEN REALLY PUSHING HIS BODY,

AND HE'S REALLY
PHYSICALLY EXHAUSTED.

I GOT TO TAKE A BREAK
FOR A COUPLE MINUTES.

I CAN'T GET
NO MORE WOOD.

DON'T. WE DON'T NEED IT.

Shane: I'M VERY TIRED.

I HAVE BEEN TAKING CARE
OF HER,

AND I HAVEN'T SLEPT
IN 48 HOURS.

AND SHE SLEPT FOR THREE DAYS
PRETTY MUCH.

KIM, I'M TOO TIRED
TO MAKE THIS TREK IN ONE DAY.

IT COULD BE MILES
THROUGH THIS *BLEEP*,

SO HERE'S WHAT I HAVE IN MIND
FOR THE MORNING.

WE WAKE UP,
WE GET OUT OF HERE,

WE STARTED HEADING
TOWARDS OUR EXTRACTION POINT

NEAR THE WATERFALL,
AND MAKE CAMP ABOUT HALFWAY

SO IT'S NOT SUCH
A LONG TREK FOR ME.

JUST KIND OF
GET STARTED EARLY?

YEAH.

I LIKE IT.

BUT THE HARDEST PART
HASN'T EVEN STARTED YET.

I'M REALLY EXHAUSTED.

Shane: AND TO PHYSICALLY
WALK ALONG THIS RIVER

AND NOT FALL AND BREAK A LEG
OR AN ARM OR SOMETHING

IS JUST GONNA BE...NOT FUN.

Shane: KIM, ARE YOU
GETTING THIRSTY?

THIS ONE,
WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO CUT.

THERE YOU GO.

THAT IS SUCH AN AWESOME FEELING,
BEING ABLE TO JUST

WALK UP TO A VINE AND CHOP IT
AND GET WATER OUT OF IT.

IT'S THE FIRST TIME THAT
I'VE EVER DRANK WATER VINE.

IT TASTES LIKE CLEAN,
BEAUTIFUL WATER.

IT'S AMAZING.

THERE'S SO MUCH IN IT.
IT'S LIKE A JUNGLE FAUCET.

ONCE WE MOVE, I'M JUST
GONNA START SHUTTING DOWN.

I JUST DON'T HAVE ANYTHING LEFT
IN MY GAS TANK.

Narrator:
TWO DAYS REMAIN

OF SURVIVAL EXPERTS
SHANE AND KIM'S

21-DAY CHALLENGE IN COSTA RICA,
BUT THE WORST IS YET TO COME.

THEIR MAP SHOWS
THAT THEIR EXTRACTION POINT,

MARKED BY A WATERFALL, LIES
SEVERAL MILES TO THE SOUTHEAST.

THE ROUTE WINDS ALONG
A ROCKY, STEEP-SIDED RIVERBED

SURROUNDED
BY IMPENETRABLE JUNGLE.

WITH KIM INCAPACITATED BY
FOOD POISONING FOR THREE DAYS,

SHANE HAS HAD TO PROVIDE FOR
TWO PEOPLE -- KIM AND HIMSELF.

WEAKENED BY THE PHYSICAL STRAIN,
SHANE IS NOW DEPLETED

AND DESPERATELY WORRIED
ABOUT BEING ABLE

TO MAKE THE FINAL TREK.

Kim: TODAY IS DAY 20.

WE'RE GONNA TRY TO TREK HALFWAY
OUT TO THE EXTRACTION POINT

AND CAMP FOR A NIGHT

SO THAT, ON THE LAST DAY,
WE DON'T HAVE SUCH A LONG HIKE.

AND I JUST HOPE THAT SHANE CAN
MAKE IT BECAUSE HE IS VERY WEAK.

AND THE MOST I CAN DO FOR HIM

IS SUPPORT HIM BY STICKING
TOGETHER THROUGHOUT THIS TREK.

ALL RIGHT.
WE'RE READY TO GO.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

I FEEL LIKE
I'M IN THE HIMALAYAS.

I'M SO TIRED.

Kim:
I'M CONCERNED ABOUT SHANE.

HE'S SUFFERING A LITTLE MORE
THAN I AM RIGHT NOW,

AND I FEEL FOR HIM.

AND I WANT TO DO
EVERYTHING I CAN TO HELP.

AAH!

AAH!

YEAH, THIS IS
SO MUCH *BLEEP* FUN!

Shane: KIM,
I CAN'T GO ANY FURTHER.

I PHYSICALLY CANNOT GO
ANY FURTHER.

OKAY. THERE'S A DRY SPOT UNDER
THAT HUGE TREE OVER THERE.

I DON'T CARE.
WHATEVER YOU WANT.

YOU WANT TO GO UP THERE?
LET'S GO UP THERE.

IT'S FINE.
WHATEVER YOU WANT.

COME ON. LET'S GO.

YOU WANT TO SIT
UNDERNEATH THIS *BLEEP*

WELL, I'M NOT SAYING
THAT WE HAVE TO.

I'M JUST SAYING --

BUT I DON'T GIVE A *BLEEP*
JUST PICK A SPOT, PLEASE.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS THAT
WE CAN CHECK THIS PLACE OUT.

JUST PICK A *BLEEP* SPOT,
PLEASE, OKAY?

THAT'S WHAT YOU LIKE
RIGHT THERE?

THAT'S FINE.
IT'S AS GOOD AS ANY.

Kim: IF YOU ARE REALLY
THAT EXHAUSTED,

I WOULD RATHER YOU JUST SIT DOWN
INSTEAD OF TAKING IT OUT ON ME.

I WOULD LIKE US TO TREAT
EACH OTHER AS HUMAN BEINGS

AND HELP EACH OTHER GET THROUGH
THIS HELL OF A NIGHT.

I'M SORRY
I SNAPPED AT YOU.

I JUST HAD NO ENERGY,

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DEBATE
WHERE WE WERE GOING.

THAT'S WHY I WAS JUST LIKE,
"I'M DONE."

IT'S OUR LAST NIGHT.
WE'VE MOVED TO A NEW SPOT.

WE DON'T HAVE OUR CANOPY.
WE DON'T HAVE OUR PLATFORM.

LOOKING AROUND,
AND IT IS DARK.

I AM VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THE
PREDATORS THAT ARE IN THIS AREA.

[ MONKEYS HOOTING ]

THIS MORNING, KIM IS GOING TO
MARK UP HER BODY IN CHARCOAL.

Kim: THESE ARE
MY SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION

OF THE LAST 21 DAYS,

AND WHEN I WASH IT OFF,
I WILL BE DONE.

LEAD THE WAY.

[ WATER SPLASHES ]

[ GRUNTS ]

YOU OKAY?

[ COUGHS ]

ARE YOU INJURED?

I'M NOT INJURED.
I'M JUST HURT.

THAT ONE'S VERY SLIPPERY.

YOU'RE GONNA WANT
TO HANG ON TO THE ROCK.

[ SOBS ]

BE VERY CAREFUL
ON THAT ONE.

AND I CAN HELP
PULL YOU UP.

I WANT TO BE BY MYSELF.

*BLEEP* GETTING HURT.

WE'RE ALMOST THERE, SHANE.

YEAH, RIGHT. I'LL BELIEVE IT
WHEN I *BLEEP* SEE IT.

SHANE, THIS IS IT.
IT'S THE END OF THE RIVER.

WOW!

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

IT'S AMAZING.

AND THAT IS HOW BEAUTIFUL
THE JUNGLE CAN BE.

TO BE ABLE TO SEE
SOMETHING LIKE THIS

AFTER SPENDING 21 DAYS
SUFFERING, IT'S JUST AWESOME.

Kim: THESE ARE OUR LAST MOMENTS
IN THE JUNGLE.

AND EVEN THOUGH
MY STOMACH IS KILLING ME

AND I'M SO HUNGRY
AND SO EXCITED TO GET OUT,

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

THERE'S A PATH FOR US TO TAKE
UP TO THE EXTRACTION POINT.

LET'S GO.

I CAN SEE A CLEARING.

LET'S WALK TOGETHER.

WE DID IT.
WE'RE FINALLY HERE.

Kim: I WENT THROUGH
A LOT OF CHALLENGES.

I REALLY SUFFERED,
BUT I GOT THROUGH IT.

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE,

I'LL BE REALLY PROUD OF MYSELF
FOR DOING THIS.

SHANE, WE DID IT.
THIS IS IT.

Shane:
IT JUST TOOK EVERYTHING I HAD.

BUT I AM VERY THANKFUL
FOR BEING BROKEN

TO REMIND ME
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN.

OHH!

I'M NOT DOING
ANYTHING ELSE EVER.

Shane: BYE, JUNGLE.
BYE-BYE, JUNGLE.

GOODBYE, COSTA RICA.
BYE, COSTA RICA.

YEAH! OUT OF HERE!
WHOO!

Narrator: SHANE AND KIM
SURVIVED A GRUELING 21 DAYS

IN THE JUNGLE OF COSTA RICA.

THEY BOTH GAINED
A MUTUAL RESPECT

AND A GREATER RESPECT
FOR THE WILD.

SHANE LOST A TOTAL OF 45 POUNDS,
AND KIM 26 POUNDS.

SHANE IS NOW BACK HOME
IN CONNECTICUT

AND IS WORKING ON A BOOK
ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE.

KIM HAS RETURNED TO HER STUDIES
IN MINNESOTA

AND IS PLANNING
HER NEXT EXPEDITION.

SURVIVAL EXPERTS
REVIEWED SHANE AND KIM

IN TERMS OF THEIR SKILLS,
EXPERIENCE, AND MENTAL APPROACH,

AND REASSESSED THEM BOTH

ACCORDING TO HOW THEY COPED
WITH THEIR CHALLENGE.

SHANE DISPLAYED HUGE BRAVERY
AND A STRONG WILL TO SURVIVE.

KIM'S SURVIVAL SKILLS
IMPROVED DRAMATICALLY.

SHANE'S TROUBLED ATTITUDE
TOWARDS KIM

MEANT THAT THEY STRUGGLED
TO WORK EFFECTIVELY AS A TEAM.

NEVERTHELESS, THEY CAME
TO RELY UPON EACH OTHER

AND GOT THROUGH THE 21 DAYS
TOGETHER.

OVERALL, SHANE'S PSR
GOES UP TO 8.4,

WHILE KIM, IN SPITE OF HUGE
OBSTACLES, IMPROVES TO 7.8.

THIS EXPERIENCE PROVED
THAT SHANE AND KIM

BOTH HAVE WHAT IT TAKES
TO SURVIVE NAKED AND AFRAID.

THIS IS THE HARDEST THING
I'VE EVER DONE IN MY LIFE.
