'Naked and Afraid'

Your Bathtub

... Is My Toilet!

6/27/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

062614_naked_and_afraid_launchThe contestants on "Naked and Afraid" don't have the basic luxuries of life ... like a separate bathtub and toilet -- so necessity being the mother of invention ... they've combined both.

The new season of the heavily-blurred Discovery Channel show premieres Sunday at 9 PM EDT... and we got hold  of a clip showcasing the delicate balance between the need to bathe and the need to pee.

The show is fun and all, but seriously ... who puts themselves through this crap?

Why not dig a deep hole at a safe distance away from the water source, in a location where rain won't potentially carry run off debris or excrement into the bath water?

Forget this, the Discovery Channel should be outright boycotted. If it's not enough that they promote redneck losers doing very pointless and dangerous things (trawling in the Arctic (cos lord knows, no-one knows how to fish safely in safe location? Gold mining cluelessly in the Yukon - cos apparently there's no gold seams in reasonable climates? There's zillions, they just don't make redneck tv, do they?) .... all of that is bad enough and sad enough that they're choosing to make money from life's tryers-but-losers .... they spit on those "losers" who make them millions out at the end of it.

Discovery, TLC, E! - not ONE of them are presenting life's losers because they want you to earn and learn empathy; they're all doing it because they want you to engage, slag their show participants off, generate publicity, and they make money.

They couldn't BE lower than that low.

On a personal note: I get the Discovery Channel (through no fault of mine, it comes in a package where I can't reject it) ... and I am personally disgusted to see where this has gone: where once they invested in programs showing interesting wildife, occupations, science ... they now show controversial (and that's where the money is) rednecks. Instead of learning about how and why cheetahs are the fastest mammal on earth, we now get to hear all about how some redneck sells his duck noise machines, how some unemployed loser is searching for gold despite the sensible odds (they exploit these simple ignorant people).

Who, how and why Discovery decided to go "redneck" and "stupid" is anyone's guess. I'm pretty sure though that there's plenty of people who know exactly why they did.

Well good luck to them: the end result is that they will have a viewing audience with average IQ of 100 and lower, and statistically, their audience won't be able to afford what they offer (or even necessarily care). They rest of us with IQs over 100 will be delighted to know we're in no way supporting this parasitic channel.Win-Win.

Non-stories are one thing. But when you do these OBVIOUS and shameless paid promos for reality shows why not at least put "This is a paid advertisement" on it?
