Wes Harper In “Naked and Afraid”

Wes Harper participated in the “Naked and Afraid ” season in a two-part episode titled “Stalked in the Savannah; Part 1 and 2.” Wes and his partner Jesse Everett were transported to the savannah home to paralyzing wasps, lethal bees, and venomous rattlesnakes. While Jesse managed to fashion a hat from grass for protection against the scorching heat, Wes ended up with a sunburn on his back.

During their 21-day adventure, Wes and Jesse relied on cherry tomatoes, berries, or coconuts for sustenance. They consumed rattlesnakes just as the snakes were about to strike them.

The audience was truly amazed by Wes’ genuine expressions whenever he talked about missing his wife and children.
