On tonight’s Naked and Afraid, some all-stars are reunited in Mexico for a whole new challenge. Including the fact that the locals swear the area, a dense jungle, is haunted.

Trent may look very familiar to Naked and Afraid fans having met him in 2015 as he was in Belize for a 21-day challenge.

The Utah native Trent Nielsen was paired up with a photographer and mom of four in Annie Foley. They had to endure three Naked and Afraid weeks, surviving in the jungles of Belize.

Now we have Trent once again, with less hair, who is surviving a haunted jungle in Mexico with a woman he has a history with on the series where contestants strip and survive in the elements for a minimum of 21 days, sometimes far longer.

Sarah Danser was one of the people back in 2018 that he survived Africa with, and now in the preview below, you can see that they have been reunited.

Judging by Sarah’s very warm greeting and fully naked body hug, the two had no issues previously.

Sarah Danser has a big strike. She starts out this challenge with an alarming lack of body fat. But with a PSR ranking of 8.3, because she has survived two diverse environments, she is well equipped to think through challenges in the Mexican jungle.

But now, she says third time’s the charm “I am so excited, we [she and Trent] survived together on XL in Africa.”

She added: “Although this environment is totally different than in Africa, I am totally confident we will be able to rock it out here.”
