JUNEAU- A 39-year-old Juneau woman is starring in a new reality show airing this month.


Kellie Nightlinger stars June 23 with Erroll James Snyder in the first episode of "Naked and Afraid" on Discovery.


The episode condenses the 21 days the pair spent in the wilderness of Tanzania in Africa. Each of the remaining shows in the six-episode first season feature a different pair.


The producers found Nightlinger over the Internet. In the past 14 months, Nightlinger has interviewed for 14 other various outdoor reality shows.


Nightlinger, a former conservation officer in Michigan, worked as a miner at Greens Creek before being offered the reality series job.


Nightlinger quit the mining job and now works as a guide at Gastineau Guiding.
