- ―CNT Announcer
The Underbelly Of Paradise is a TV show in Grand Theft Auto V, featured on CNT. The show follows FIB agent Steve Haines showing the criminal side of Los Santos to the public. It seems to be a parody of many reality crime shows and police chase shows such as Cops, World's Wildest Police Videos, 86 , Chicago P.D. , CSI, and Gangland.
- "Suck my dick, Steve fucking Haines!"
- ―A Ballas gang member to Steve Haines.
The show depicts the crime life of Los Santos, introducing stories like:
- Chinese weapon smuggling operations.
- The arrest of a half naked man running amuck while high.
- A new street drug called "Toilet Cleaner".
- The murder of Leonora Johnson and all the possible theories involving her death, ranging from celebrities to Aliens.
- Accidental murders done by DUI drivers.
- Illegal street racing.
- At one point, a man is holding up a sign that reads "Down with this sort of thing", which is a reference to a similar scene in the Irish sitcom Father Ted.
- After Steve's death in The Third Way, Dave Norton becomes the show's new host, although there are no episodes featuring him during the course of the game.
