 Amanda Kaye is a survivalists and stay at home mom. She 1st appeared on Discovery Channel's hit TV show Naked and Afraid in 2014. Although she did not make the 21 days she didn't let that stop her. She again went back in 2015 to the jungle of Guyana where she proved she has what it takes to survive.

She was raised studying, teaching and living the way Native Americans did during the 1800s. She learned how to survive using only what the land provides. Her favorite part of Native American survival is brain tanning deer hides.

As soon as she could walk, Amanda's father taught her how to hunt and fish. It only takes her one shot to bring home dinner for her family. She knows how to use every part of the deer so that nothing goes to waste.

Amanda loves a challenge. If she fails she never gives up. The harder the better especially when it requires being creative. If there is something to be made, she can more than likely figure out how to make it.
