Ever wanted to get to know the survivalists behind Discovery Channel’s hit show Naked and Afraid? This could be your chance!

Gabby Balassone and Ky Furneaux are hosting an exclusive screening of episodes 5 and 6 (the finale) of “Naked and Afraid XL: Frozen”—complete with a Meet & Greet, Q & A Session, book and photo signing. Naked and Afraid XL: Frozen follows four teams of elite survivalists as they put their primitive survival skills to the ultimate test in the frozen Rocky Mountains of Montana. The survivalists face brutal temperatures, extreme terrains, and dangerous predators.

Background on Ky and Gabby:
