Photographs of a group of men and women running naked on a beach allegedly taken from an episode of Survivor Robinson Ekspeditionen, reportedly broadcast in Denmark, were published on the front page of a Malaysian tabloid.
According to the tabloid, 16 out of the 22 participants stripped naked for the run while five others got to keep their underwear on. A female participant who refused to strip was kicked out of the show.
"I have to first determine what happened because various allegations have been made. I have asked all the parties responsible to forward their evidence," communications and culture minister Rais Yatim told English daily the Star.
He added that Malaysian's film production guidelines prohibit obscenity or overexposure of the body parts.
