Naked and Afraid star Brandon Pope was arrested earlier this month, E! News can confirm. 

According to an online inmate report, the 42-year-old was booked on Oct. 7 in Nashville, Arkansas and charged with voyeurism.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the Naked and Afraid star, who appeared on season 11 of the long-running Discovery reality show, is accused of spying on a teenage family member who was taking a bath. The outlet reports someone inside the house called police and Pope was later arrested.

According to Southwest Arkansas Radio, who cited sheriff's investigators, authorities discovered a hole drilled under the doorknob of the bathroom door that appeared to be the angle from where alleged videos were taken.

When contacted by E! News on Oct. 20, police would only confirm that he was charged with voyeurism. TMZ and Southwest Arkansas Radio both report that Pope remains behind bars with his bail set at $50,000.

The series brings two complete strangers together in some of the most extreme environments on Earth. Each male-female duo is left without food, water and clothing during the experiment. Instead, they each receive only one survival item as they attempt to survive on their own. 

Back in 2017, Pope also appeared in Discovery's adventure series, Darkness. The show featured survivalists trapped inside caves and abandoned mines for a week.
