Naked and Afraid Season 15 premiered on 19 February 2023 on Discovery Channel and introduced us to Jamie Frizzell, a no-nonsense lifeguard, adventurer, and bushcraft instructor. So, this season of the survival show kicked off with him and fellow survivalists and friend Steve Baxter. These two, who already found fame previously as the country’s top survivalists, were tasked to invite explorers to take a step on the wild side around Keelby.
Anyway, in the rest of the writing let us exclusively tell you all and only about Jamie Frizzell.
Jamie Frizzell On Discovery’s Naked & Afraid
Not just anyone gets to be on Naked & Afraid. According to producers, they look for really elite survivalists from those reaching out to them, individuals like ex-military, and those who have experienced real-life survival situations. As for Jamie Frizzell, he received an email from a casting company in Los Angeles wanting him to take part in the TV show. He thought it was a joke at first and then the thought, “what have a I got to loose?”, came over him and so he replied back and he was quickly assured that the offer was all real and legal.
Back in 2019, Jamie decided he would put his bushcraft and survival knowledge to good use and create a YouTube channel. So, he filmed and uploaded how-to videos such as Fire Lighting, Purifying Water, and How To Shoot A Catapult. They became rather popular attracting fellow bush crafters from around the world. And just a month after uploading his first video, Naked & Afraid also invited him.
Jamie before this not only has been the winner of the previous season of the show, but he actually also survived a 21-day Tribes challenge in the Amazon. He mostly landed international acclaim after surviving three weeks in the South African savannah.
Previously Jamie appeared in just one episode of Naked & Afraid‘s 2021 season. Another year, he received credits for in total of 11 episodes.
Jamie Frizzell Job
On his social media, Jamie Frizzell goes around as a YouTube/social media influencer, survival instructor, and trained lifeguard.
Also back in 2011, Jamie joined the British Army. His time there with the armed forces, he says, was eventful. Only in a few weeks, he said, he had started a passive income business of renting out adult magazines to the squaddies due to lack of internet. Unfortunately, his time there was also cut short when he injured his knee during a 6-miles-long Tactical Advance into Battle.
