Get paid for dating
When it comes to the reality TV dating show genre, there's not much that hasn't been done already: there's been blind dating, dating in the literal dark, chained-up dating, dating with parents, tropical dating, cruise dating, foodie dating, dating en masse (think episode — first between each episode's two pickers, and then between two other tempting (naked) singles each picker also gets to take out.
It's about stripping away, sure, clothing, but also the barriers that stop people from finding a connection with someone — whether that's the social barriers or the physical barriers.How did auditions work, in terms of gauging people's comfort with nudity? Did they have to send in nude selfies or something?I was not really involved in the auditions process, but I do think before our contestants flew out there was a final casting round where they had to get naked.It wasn't about us saying, "Hey, we want to check out your goods," it was about making sure the contestants were OK with being in a room full of people and being naked. There are 60 contestants total, so you can imagine the range of emotions going through people's minds.
It's very different when suddenly the cameras are out. Some were really gung-ho; others definitely felt more trepidation and were really nervous about it.For the most part, everyone was super game, but when it comes down to it, yes, sometimes it can be hard for someone.They start overthinking, like, I don't think I could do it, journey of self-discovery or not. I'm like, "It's no big deal, really." I take very good care of myself so I'm not afraid of showing anyone my body — but yes, I might feel the opposite when I actually had to strip down.I'd probably be really giggly and awkward, like a lot of people on the show.
