The Naked Truth Of ‘Dating Naked’ Is Hardly What You’d Expect

Dating Naked is the dating show with the twist that the couples are always… well, naked. Of course, that leaves plenty of room for drama and we’ve been behind the scenes to get you the juiciest Dating Naked stories.

You won’t believe what goes on when the cameras are off.


Jaidyn Cayden Arrived For Her Audition Naked

Jaidyn is one of the show’s most popular contestants and to win her place, she skipped clothes altogether.

She said that she figured as she would be nude on the show, why not be nude when she arrived for her audition? It worked.

It Was A Bit Of A Domestic Flop

Dating Naked was competing with another source of naked people. There’s the Internet which is awash with naked folks; it’s also awash with non-pixellated versions of the show sold in other markets.

That meant ratings in the US were poor and they only broke the 1 million mark once.

They Claim To Have A Purpose For Dating Naked

Amy Paffrath, the show’s host, says it’s not just cheap titillation.

Instead, she wants to point out that Dating Naked was meant, “to strip away barriers and leave them in a very raw, vulnerable position so they have nothing to hide behind.”

Advertisers Weren’t Keen On Dating Naked Either

Low ratings are a problem. Advertisers refusing to be aired? That’s a bigger problem. Some of VH1’s biggest corporate advertisers decided that they didn’t want their brands associated with nude people on a dating show.

It’s hard to pay for a show that’s not making money.
