Teen Mom OG fans spent several months anticipating Maci Bookout's appearance on Naked and Afraid.
And we think it's safe to say they didn't quite get what they were hoping for.
Maci's wilderness adventure was a short one, as the mother of three struggled mightily during her time in Nicaragua.
Some viewers stated that they had hoped to see more of Ms. Bookout, but most applauded her courage in taking on such a challenge.
And as a bonus, her happy-go-lucky partner definitely earned some new fans!
1. Maci Bookout: Both Naked and Afraid
Maci spent the past week hyping her appearance on the show, and she was clearly excited to share the experience with fans.
2. TV’s Toughest Show
No show on television tests the limits of human endurance quite like Naked and Afraid, and very few contestants last the full 21 days. So Maci certainly isn’t alone in not completing the challenge.
3. Badass Attitude
In her intro video, Maci referred to herself as a badass, a word that’s often used by TMOG fans when describing the tough-as-nails mother of three.
She described her preparations for the show, revealing that she spent a lot of time working on starting fires without the aid of matches or a lighter. At first, it seemed that all that hard work paid off.
5. Early Success
Maci and her partner — an ICU nurse named Justin — managed to build a fire on their first day in the wilderness — a rare accomplishment on Naked and Afraid.
6. No Match For Nicaragua
Unfortunately, that would prove to be Maci’s final triumph in the jungles of Nicaragua.
