After watching countless proposal videos — and even one that lead to some misdemeanor charges being filed — we really thought we had seen it all. But then again, there's a first time for everything... You might be familiar with the Discovery Channel show, Naked and Afraid. If you're not, the premise is pretty simple. Each week, two participants are dropped off in some harsh and remote location, from the Amazon rainforest to the Sahara desert, sans food, water, shelter, and, oh yeah, clothes. Every episode remains pretty standard, with people trying to survive being, well, naked and afraid. But the jungle got shaken up on a recent episode of the Discovery Channel staple, where one of the participants decided to forgo the whole romantic dinner, roses, and nice tux proposal clichés and popped the question to his girlfriend right in the middle of the dense Thailand jungle — in the buff, of course.
It had been a pretty rough couple of days for Naked and Afraid survivalist Matt Wright. He was hungry, tired, and, of course, naked. He couldn't catch any frogs, lost his fishing trap in the river, and was reaching his breaking point. "I've been failing at everything I try to do today," Wright told the cameras. "I would say morale is probably at an all-time low right now."
To boost his spirits, Wright turned to a note from his girlfriend, Brooke Benham, that he had held on to throughout his jungle escapades. Reading the kind, encouraging words from his sweetheart, Wright was filled with such love for Benham (or perhaps the sun exposure was finally getting to him) and decided that now was the time to get down on one knee.
Kneeling down next to the river, Wright declared his devotion to Benham via the cameras.
"Brooke, from the day I met you, I fell in love at first sight," he said. "And so I ask you now, will you make me the luckiest man in the world?"
Wright had to wait until he was back at home in Colorado (and a little less naked) to get his answer from his girlfriend. According to People, the film crew proved Wright with a copy of his proposal and then Wright took Benham up to a campsite that he decorated with flowers and romantic string lights. Over dinner, he presented Benham with the video and got his yes!
The now-engaged duo plan to tie the knot this summer — fully clothed, of course.
