Joe Ortlip Sam, Naked And Alone
Over Naked And Alone, the viewers never got to see Joe Ortlip and Sam get alone. While Joe flaunted a laid-back persona and obeyed the minimalistic rules of the wild, Sam on the other hand, relentlessly played mind games and bullied Joe.
In a trailer, Sam was seen bullying Joe into drinking more water, implying that his failure would mark him of reckless and self-destructive nature. But since the water was so scarce, Joe stood his ground and didn’t let Sam’s verbal abuse bring him down. He said,
“Nothing out here takes more priority than water. When you went hiking you were gone all day. What if this would have happened? I wouldn’t be able to help you. And then what?”
However, Sam didn’t budge an inch from her absurd wish. In the end, Joe eventually told her that she was right.
For handling the situation with composure, fans applauded Joe and obviously started trashing Sam. To which, Joe took it to his Reddit, asking fans to be kind to Sam, as he believed she was “still a good person”.
