(POCATELLO, ID) – A Pocatello man is the new star of the hit Discovery Channel series “Naked and Afraid.” Twenty-seven-year-old Jeff Zausch grew up hunting and fishing in the Gem State, and wanted to put his skills to the test for an international audience. Zausch and his assigned partner, Eva Rupert of Arizona, spent 21 days in the Madagascar desert surviving on only what they could capture themselves and completely exposed to the elements. Zausch says it was an unforgettable experience that pushed him to his limits physically and mentally. The episode will air this Sunday at 7 p.m.
