One of the draws of reality TV shows like "Survivor" and "Fear Factor" is watching how people thrown into extreme situations react. A new show on the Discovery Channel may have found a way to be even more extreme. 

It's called "Naked and Afraid", and that pretty much sums up the premise of the show. Two people are stripped of their clothes and belongings and are dropped into a remote location with 21 days to find their way out.

The prize for being the "fittest" survivor is nothing but pride and bragging rights. 

The show's executive producer Steve Rankin joins the show to talk about this outrageous new series.
