As a Teen Mom OG, Maci Bookout has pretty much seen it all. Just 26, she has three kids, endless drama with co-stars (we’re looking at you, Jenelle), and a restraining order against a baby daddy with wet ink. Despite this, she was admittedly “scared” and “anxious” as she pulled ashore for her guest gig on Naked and Afraid, an exclusive clip of the Discovery Channel show reveals.
Yes, the MTV star is leaving all her cherished possessions — and, ya know, clothes — behind to participate in a special fan edition of the show, which takes her to the jungles of Nicaragua. The episode, which airs Sunday, sees Bookout and her male counterpart — a guy who reminds us of Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson‘s role of Maui in Moana (or maybe we’ve just watched the film too many times) — spending 14 days without food, water, shelter, and underpants.
In the clip, the Bulletproof author’s nerves are exposed as her boat arrives on an empty beach. “I’m feeling anxious,” the strawberry blonde says. “I’ve had nightmares that I’ve had to tap out.” As she surveys the land — beach, but also forest and hills, she admits, “I’m kinda scared.”
And all that was before she had to strip naked for strangers and at least one camera. The tattooed 26-year-old then removes her clothing, which has its own set of anxieties. “The dreadful part of taking my clothes off has come,” she says as she kicks off her Converse, tank, and bottoms. “Naked for all to see,” she says, revealing her extensive back and arm tattoos (a clock, a lightning bolt, a piece of loose-leaf paper, and the word “bulletproof” in script). Stark naked, she goes on to meet her fellow survivalist.
