Kristen Bell and Ellen DeGeneres have a long history of making memorable television together.

Kristen’s sloth meltdown of 2012 became one of the daytime show’s most beloved moments, and today, Ellen made another dream come true for Bell, as she allowed the actress to re-create her favorite reality series, Naked and Afraid.

Kristen Bell: Naked and Afraid

Okay, so the Frozen star didn’t really deliver on the "naked" part of the title (for that you’ll have to go back to Kristen’s wardrobe malfunction from last month), but a flesh-colored bodysuit is as close as you can get on daytime TV.

As for the fear, well…there was plenty of that.

Check out the clip above to see Kristen get tormented by the elements as she attempts to build a fire and construct a shelter. At least they kept a stuffed sloth nearby for comfort.


If you’re not familiar with the show, Naked and Afraid is a reality series in which a man and woman are left to survive in the wilderness for 21 days. As the title suggests, they’re forced to leave their clothes behind.

We’d like to nominate Kristen and her husband Dax Shepard as the show’s first celebrity contestants.

Not only would it force Kristen to actually strip down for the cameras, if the couple moved to the rain forest, they wouldn’t have to worry about paparazzi taking pictures of their kid. That’s a win-win situation.
