Naked speed dating
What if someone took the standard reality TV dating show and stripped it down to the basics? The result would be VH1’s new “Dating Naked,” which, despite its cheeky title, is not a parody of a dating show in which the contestants seek love while completely naked.
It’s an actual dating show in which the contestants seek love while completely naked.
The show’s description is really something: ‘After a spectacular and rather awkward start, the couple explores the island to find their shelter and food supply, where they will spend the night together in a breathtaking paradise: it is their true Garden of Eden.’ Having proved a hit in its native Holland, there are now said to be plans to bring the series to the UK.

She specifically cited a date where she and her would-be paramour painted a canvas with their bodies. “It was like the best date I’ve ever had,” she says.
Shot on location in Bora Bora, each week two new men and women will strip down for a shot at igniting a spark with our primary daters.
At the end of each episode, Natalie and David will each pick the one person they connected with the best to be their keeper and stay on the island.
“You get caught up in what they’re doing, and it doesn’t matter that they aren’t wearing any clothes.” What they “are doing” is being subjected to the classic unscripted show format: Set in an exotic locale — in this case, Panama — “Dating Naked” presents a primary unclothed couple who meet cute and go off on their first date. Over the next two days, the dates are introduced to other prospective partners before making a final choice about who they want to date (if anyone).
“The show quickly becomes not about being naked, but about being honest with people,” says VH1 Executive Vice President Susan Levison.
