It’s episode 4 of Naked and Afraid XL in the South African Badlands and there is an argument over the top dog, leading to problems for the whole tribe.

Even as the groups hit the halfway stage they get distracted instead of concentrating on their survival.

Last week the survivalists started to really feel it as they struggled in the Badlands. Two fell ill from tick bite fever, there was conflict and Angel left the show.

Desperate for some protein, some also tucked into some rancid meat that looked extremely dicey.

If you’ve never seen the show, it puts 12 survival experts out in the wilderness with literally not even the shirt on their backs.

It then follows their attempts to catch food, build shelters, find water and just bond into some sort of successful team. Often it is the psychological impacts of hunger and isolation that hit the hardest.

For 40 days the veterans have to survive the hunger, the heat and the wildlife.

Watch the highs and lows of last week on Naked and Afraid XL below.
