In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton speaks with Pocatello-native Jeff Zausch.

Zausch recently spent 60 days in the Philippines as part of ‘Naked and Afraid XL.’ He has returned again and again to the Discovery Channel for their ‘Naked and Afraid’ series and has spent over 120 days through the years living naked in the wild as the world watched him and his partners survive the elements.

Zausch spoke with Eaton about the challenges he faced, why he thought he might have to quit this past season, if he will ever go on the show again (with his girlfriend?) and what’s next for his career.
