Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout got Naked and Afraid in the jungles of Chacocente, Nicaragua, but though she began the episode confidently, she quickly found the day challenge unbearable. Bookout made it just a short distance into the jungle before realizing the ground was covered with thorns and cactus needles. She struggled while hiking through the terrain in her bare feet and ultimately had to be carried by her partner, Justin. The next morning her mood had soured.
Maci Bookout may not have lasted as long as she had hoped on Naked and Afraid , but it wasn't for lack of being prepared. After her episode of the Discovery Channel show aired this past weekend, the Teen Mom OG star opened up about the grueling training she participated in for months before being set loose in the jungles of Nicaragua. Maci participated on a celebrity edition of Naked and Afraid , s survival show that drops contestants into the wilderness without food, water, or even clothes. Since it was a celebrity edition, Maci was only slated to survive for two weeks, instead of the usual three required by most contestants. But the whole experience ended prematurely for Maci, and she ended up tapping out after just one miserable night.
