I can't see how this date does much to further their goals, but nudity does break down some barriers. Meanwhile, Wee Wee meets Jack, a guy who says he is very flexible when it comes to the type of woman he seeks. Though there is some awkwardness at first, eventually they are very comfortable with each other, even applying some paint with their hands. In phase three, Joe meets Chrissie, a performance violinist who wants a man who is "funny" and "driven".Later, they have a clothed dinner where they share their feelings and hopes. A motorboat pulls them on an inner tube until they are exhausted--not exactly the best setting for soul sharing.
So the obvious hook is to appeal to the voyeur in all of us.
But if I am going to be tempted to watch a show which features the word "nude" or "naked' then I expect to see things that are not normally on display, otherwise what's the point?
I didn't really watched the whole 2 shows I bothered with, just zipped thru, but the producers may get a bigger audience, more voyeurs if they didn't blur it all.
I personally not that keen on a lot of "reality" shows, they are really staged reality and usually pretty boring.
Then it's back to the jungle villa where the six of them cavort in the pool. She is hoping that Joe will assert himself and pursue her. I would never want my reputation ruined in this way.
Joe and Wee Wee retire upstairs where they share their first kiss and she reinforces the connection by calling him a "jerk". When they go back to the pool, Jasmine reconnects with Joe and they go upstairs to make out until Wee Wee comes looking. They better have a better show coming down the pike or their reputation WILL be in jeopardy.
In "The Bachelor", participants know that the bachelor or bachelorette will spend time with others, and feelings of jealousy are scorned. In the final phase, the six are reunited with the hostess where Joe and Wee Wee get to make their choices among the three candidates for their affection. Wee Wee chooses Joe, though she still wonders about his intentions. Apparently there is no prize other than the trip to the island and the experience. Some production teams and or exec producers have redeemed themselves in the past but not sure this company can produce good quality TV. Don't give up yet though, do something in better taste and you might be successful yet. Initially, I was embarrassed to admit that I enjoyed watching the few episodes that I saw, but why should I be? In one episode, a young lady gets cold feet about dating in the buff, puts on her clothes, and declares that she's leaving the island. One scatter-brained woman couldn't stop giggling and was wondering why she couldn't hold on to any guys for very long.
And there is no explanation of what happens if they choose someone else. I assume they all walk off the show and resolve things any way they want to. It does feel like most of the participants are there to find love, marriage or a significant other. If the tone was more like Naked and Afraid I might have watched. Although it's not award winning TV, this show has some positive things going for it. And then there are the joys of seeing a shapely butt, as that is the most you're going to see as there is no full frontal nudity.
But is this format the best way to accomplish that? Does the nudity contribute to the chances of finding someone? Update 8/17/14: After watching a few episodes of this show, I think the producers do a good job of finding interesting daters. I'm sure some people think this show is stupid but there are dumber reality shows on TV viz., Big Brother and The Kardashians, which I refuse to watch. "Naked Dating" is on a TV channel that does not show frontal nudity and this dooms this reality dating TV series.
I don't know how effective the show is as a venue for long-term connections, but it is entertaining to see how these people cope with the situation. Even The Bachelor has less entertainment value, in my opinion. For example, the leading male needs to pick from three females, and by his comments, we know he wants to pick the one female with the biggest chest.
He is from Long Island and she was originally from NYC.
