Karra Falkenstein is pretty convincing when she says living through a difficult childhood in Milwaukee helped her survive the ruggedly dangerous environment on reality TV show "Naked and Afraid. Which led me to a follow-up question: "The whole world is going to see your butt for an hour. You know that, right? The one-hour episode featuring Karra and her equally naked partner, a Californian named Gary whom she was meeting for the first time, airs on the Discovery Channel at 9 p.
They were dropped into an arid and desolate savannah region of Brazil with no clothes, no food and no water. The challenge is to survive out there for 21 days. You'll have to tune in to see if they make it.
I watched an earlier episode featuring a different couple in the Mexican jungle. She lasted three days until getting injured, and he made it for nine before his body was so covered in bug bites that he couldn't continue. Breasts and genitals are blurred out, but the censors apparently give a green light to rear ends. You're thinking I have to protect myself from the elements.
I have to find food. I have to find water. I have to build shelter," Karra, 36, told me in a phone interview with a Discovery Channel publicist listening in.
She was raised in Milwaukee in a hostile environment of poverty and neglect. Her mother was not in the picture. Karra attended Lady Pitts High School for pregnant girls and gave birth to a daughter when she was You want to talk survival?
That was her daily reality. She went on to graduate from Alverno College in communications. She commutes from Milwaukee to Madison for a job as an IT developer, and she owns a wellness consulting company called Strategic Spirit. As someone who enjoys marathons and obstacle courses, Karra applied to be a survivalist — the word contestant doesn't quite do the task justice — on the provocatively named "Naked and Afraid," now in its ninth season.
She wanted to inspire other women to trust their inner strength. Producers selected her after she passed a series of mental, psychological and physical tests and proved to have a winning personality that viewers like. We prefer to care about the people we watch possibly dying out there in the middle of nowhere. I stopped getting pedicures as soon as I applied inand I walked barefoot every day when I got home, like down by the Milwaukee River where the rocks and stuff are," Karra said. Her episode was filmed last summer by a small crew. Cameras are rolling day and night.
A medic is on site in case of an emergency. But the dangers are real and the horseflies are vicious, Karra said.
We're assuming the risk," she said, adding that competitors are not paid to be on the show. The episode description le me to believe Karra clashes a bit with something-year-old Gary, a minimalist who calls himself the Tarzan of Los Angeles and eats bugs for fun. They developed a working friendship but absolutely no sexual attraction. A tease for the show says one of them, after days of starvation, eats unripe fruit and gets desperately ill.
Karra won't say which, but did mention that she lost a lot of weight. No butts about it, Karra is throwing a watch party on Sunday and inviting her father, husband, year-old daughter and other friends and family. Contact Jim Stingl at or jstingl jrn.
