Naked and Afraid Survivalist Wrangles a Deadly Snake While Fully Nude — Watch a Clip!

Why did it have to be snakes? It's hard enough participating on Discovery's Naked and Afraid thanks to the very nature of the show — two strangers spend three weeks in the wild together armed with no food, no water, and no clothes. But in the season 4 premiere of the reality hit, one of the survivalists comes face to face with a deadly snake and not much in the way of protection.

In a sneak peek clip at the episode, watch the unlucky man as he surveys the landscape of his new home — a swampy area populated by alligators.

"The good news is, the higher waters will bring in more wildlife, making this an even more target-rich environment," he says before nearly stepping on a giant, venomous snake.

He then tries to fend off the water moccasin, saying, "I just came up on it. If I hadn't been paying attention I would've gotten bit. I would've been out of here."

Unfortunately, he isn't armed with quite enough power to take on the snake, so he calls to his partner for help. "Amber, bring the machete!"

Watch the clip above. Naked and Afraid airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery.
