Naked and Afraid’s Julia Bulinsky took on the Discovery show challenge in a bid to prove that she’s just as “bada**” as her mom. Julia and her Naked and Afraid partner, Waylon Harper, are both children of former stars of the show. The two ventured into the dense Mexican rainforest during season 14.

As Naked and Afraid Last One Standing wraps up in 2023, fans cast their minds back to previous cast members of the show including Julia. She was dubbed “brave,” and “courageous” by viewers. Before heading into the rainforest, Julia’s mom encouraged her to eat termites and walk on rocks to prepare for her time on the show.
