Nude scenes of “Naked and Afraid” shot in Perak jungle
It has been recently discovered that for one of the episodes of “Naked and Afraid” titled, “The Pain Forest”, participants of the show were filmed naked in a Perak jungle.
In case you haven’t heard of the show, in each episode of Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid”; an American survival reality show; a male and a female participant who meet for the first time must live and survive together for 21 days in the wilderness, naked. The survivors must work together to find shelter, clothing, food and water for themselves by using their surrounding environment.
The participants in “The Pain Forest” episode were Fernando Calderon, a firefighter and Samantha Pearson, a single mother who needed to endure the relentless storms of a Malaysian rainforest.

Although the show is aimed for American viewers, recently, the video of the episode was widely shared on YouTube.
Based on the logo of a well-known brand displayed on a boat that was used by the contestants, it is deduced that the filming of the show took place at the Royal Belum forest in Perak.

However, the episode is actually the second time the shooting of the reality show has taken place in Malaysia, the first time it took place was on the island of Borneo in the episode “Breaking Borneo” where survivors Puma Cabra and Julie Wright had to survive 21 days in the Borneo islands. The duo failed to complete the challenge.
