Almost three months ago, Discovery announced that Teen Mom OG star Maci McKinney would be testing out her survivalist skills by stripping down and being dropped in the wilderness for a special celebrity edition of their super popular reality series Naked and Afraid. This Sunday, fans will finally be able to see a sneak peek of Maci’s appearance!
Maci took to social media to share the news, revealing that Discovery will air a preview during Sunday night’s episode of Naked and Afraid XL: All Stars.
Eeek! Everyone has been asking about my episode of Naked and Afraid… Watch the sneak peek inside the new episode of Naked and Afraid XL: All Stars this Sunday night at 10pm on @discoverychannel @nakedandafraidtv ???
Along with the announcement, Maci shared the very first photo from her episode — in which you can see her roughin’ it and in-the-buffin’ it by a campfire with a rather sizable naked man:
The Naked and Afraid Facebook page shared Maci’s post with their own announcement, but without any additional info. “THIS SUNDAY get a super secret peek at our teen mom survivalist during Naked and Afraid XL: All Stars this Sunday night at 10pm,” the page posted.
Maci is apparently in good hands: the man she’s been paired with looks to be Justin Tuell, a 31-year-old ICU nurse from Colorado who likes to hunt, fish, and hike in his spare time. Here are a couple photos of Justin completely not naked and completely not afraid:
In addition to his medical background and experience in the wilderness, Justin is also a former collegiate wrestler — just in case he and Maci bump up against a bear with no weapons or whatever. 😉 Justin was born in Hawaii, but later moved to Colorado where he chose to follow in his mother and grandmother’s footsteps by becoming a nurse.
We still don’t know anything about an air date or time, but I assume we’ll find out during the preview on Sunday night. Be sure to tune in for a brand new episode of Naked and Afraid XL: All Stars airing at 10/9c on Discovery!
UPDATE – It turns out we didn’t have to wait after all! Click here to get more details about Maci’s appearance on Naked and Afraid, including a preview clip, premiere date, promo photos and more!
On a side note, it sure is strange to know we’ll be able to see a Teen Mom OG star naked and it won’t be Farrah Abraham! 😉
