BEST OUTDOOR TV SHOWS

We don't like those reality shows or tv shows with no content at all. But when it is an outdoor show, of course, we do like them. We watched some of them on TV years ago and we watched some of them online. These are our favorite ones, maybe you know most of them, but still if you wanna check any of them, it will worth it!

NAKED AND AFRAID - 2013 | 12 seasons

Network: Discovery Channel

Discovery Channel takes the ubiquitous survival show theme to the next level by stripping it to its bare essentials. In "Naked and Afraid," complete strangers -- usually a man and a woman -- meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food or water, and they are completely naked. Each episode follows the adventurers as they plan to survive on their own with nothing but a private item and therefore the knowledge that the sole prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there's no other choice, competitors quickly get to understand each other -- and their surroundings -- and hope that their instincts, survival skills and intestinal fortitude serve them well.

DUAL SURVIVAL - 2010 | 3 seasons

Third season introduces US Special Ops veteran Joseph Teti to replace Canterbury, in the middle of Season 4 primitive survivalist Matt Graham of Discovery's `Dude, You're Screwed' replaces Lundin, then partway through Season 5 the presenters become former US Army Green Beret Grady Powell and survivalist Bill McConnell.
