By Aaron Humes: Fans of two well-known American television series may recognize the background when those programs air this week.

On Sunday, Discovery Channel aired an episode of Naked and Afraid, a 21-day survival challenge pitting two contestants against Mother Nature, filmed in Belize.Naked-and-Afraid

Contestants Kacie Cleveland from Bellingham, Washington, and Aaron Phillips from Orlando, Florida, team up and strip down naked to see if they can survive the 21 day challenge in the jungles of Belize. Kacie is an athletic trainer and grew up camping with her family, while Aaron balances being a stay-at-home dad, business development strategist, writer and outdoor guide.

The pair battle snakes, bot flies, hot sun and rain and many other hazards – but, spoiler alert, they make it out safely.

This is the third visit to Belize by the show in its five seasons; it previously visited in seasons 2 and 4.

Meanwhile, CBS’ new series Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, starring Gary Sinise, comes to Belize on Wednesday night as the the fictional FBI’s International Response Team visit an unnamed island off the coast of Belize to search for a honeymooning couple who disappeared. They interact with local police and witnesses as they search for the killer.
