At this point, reality-show producers have pretty much tried every trick in the book.
Dating, real estate, cooking competitions, backwoods survival — after a certain point, there’s nothing new under the sun.
Are you looking for someone to date, or a long-term relationship?
Here's a new, free online dating social network that offers lots of handy features that can help you in your quest for friendship or romance.
Most of these services offer handy tools such as searchable databases, which make it easy to find people in your area (as well as people who share your interests).
The Web offers a growing number of free personal ad and online dating services, many of which have become increasingly sophisticated and feature-laden over the past year.
When contestant Wee Wee (yes) tells a date she met maybe a few hours before that she is thinking about marriage and children down the road, it feels as though the show’s trying to ape the most inane aspects of “The Bachelor”; if the contestants were wearing clothes, it’d be an extremely bad copy of the old MTV after-school shows, like “Next” or “Date My Mom,” that tried to cannibalize that ABC dating show’s success.
This show has what appears to be a fairly limited budget and a killer hook — why doesn’t it just embrace what it is?
But even nudists — as one woman looking for a house with a lot of closet space makes clear — put clothes on for their dealings with the non-nudist world.
It’s just that when people are standing in the middle of a potential rental property naked, all of their casual requests seem inherently ludicrous.
The nudity, indeed, turns out to be the least interesting aspect of the show.
The contestants could be frank and honest about the kind of bodily evaluation that goes into very-short-term dating, but instead still speak about “connections” and potential futures together.
Though nudity on this show (like “Dating Naked”) is blurred, shots are also often set up to jokily conceal genitals in the way that Wilson’s face was hidden by fences and furniture on “Home Improvement.” On “Dating Naked,” the contestants only have other naked people to talk to; on “Buying Naked,” the nude folks are put into conversation with a clothed real estate agent who becomes an avatar for the clothed audience.
