VH1 has hit an all time, bare naked low. Things couldn’t get worse after “Rock of Love 2” or “Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch,” right? Apparently not. The network is about to give a big “fuck it” to creativity and just have people go naked to find a mate. With the same, standard premise to every other dating show you’ve ever seen, this creatively named “Naked Dating” will be filmed in exotic locations because nobody wants to see your bare ass trampsing around Nowheresville in the midwest while looking for a significant other.
The network is spinning it with a lot of romantic integrity stating, “We created this show based on marrying a provocative idea with a back to basics philosophy. With all the dating options in the world, what happens if you take one man and woman and strip them of all their pretenses?” While that sounds like a perfect setup for you to meet the love of your life, you’re STILL NAKED. It’s hard enough going out wearing a midriff-bearing top. Thanks, VH1, for thinking speed dating in the buff would be much more enjoyable.
While this combination of “Naked and Afraid” and “The Bachelor” seems promising as far as trashy reality television goes, I can’t imagine how the large–or possibly very small–elephant in the room is not going to be addressed. “Yes, I really enjoy John Grisham novels as well, but I can see your balls and I don’t know if we can ever make eye contact again.” It seems like there will either be a lot of ogling or ick faces and a lot less caring about the contestants’ love lives. Basically, it’s just like every other dating show.
