This guy could teach "Naked and Afraid" crew how to build shelter and survive

For those of you who watch the TV show, "Naked and Afraid", the advanced primitive skills this guy displays may come in useful one day.

Quite frankly, the whole dropping you naked in a harsh environment and then blurring out the naughty bits for commercial TV is unrealistic and silly: Primitive civilizations advance slowly on foot or by boat from one place with resourced to the next. They are not born as adults with no support whatsoever. That aside, all "Naked and Afraid" participants should view these videos before they go make a blurry spectacle of themselves:

Unrealistic. Where did he get the energy to do all the work? Cleaning himself, sleeping at night, eating what food? Those pieces to construct his hut looks like they came from IKEA kit. :rofl:

Under the videos it says he does this as a hobby. He does not claim to live in these huts.

It obviously takes much longer to build than the videos show...

Dressers take much longer to put together the drawers, but this cubby wall unit is held together with only 8 IKEA L shape bolts. :thumbup:

I was half expecting him to build a mud flat screen TV.

That would require a real wood saw. His cutting tools are made of stone, because he decided to impose those limits on himself.
Still not impressed. Somewhere along evolution, man did built a real wood saw. :p
