THE DISTURBING UNTOLD TRUTH OF DATING NAKED
By OWEN CONOR and

Bug Bites
If you’re naked in the wild, you’re bound to get bug bites, and that’s what happened to the Season 1 cast of “Dating Naked,” who dated each other naked (obviously) in Panama. Former host Amy Paffrath told USA Today, "We have all been eaten alive," and confirmed that contestants got bites in "interesting places."
Sunburns
Not only do the show's naked cast members get eaten alive by bugs, but they also risk contracting incredibly painful sunburns. Paffrath called the sunburns during filming “ridiculous,” and Season 2 contestant Kerri Cipriani says she only survived by following a strict regime of constant sunscreen application.
Being Exposed
Paffrath also confirmed that the show's contestants need to strip down to their birthday suits during the casting process. She says "it was about making sure the contestants were OK with being in a room full of people and being naked," but it probably helped that many of the cast members were models.
Crew Members
Reality TV producers often tell their cast members to pretend the crew isn’t even there, but one “Dating Naked” crew member went even further and ditched his clothes to make the cast feel more comfortable. Perhaps now would be a good time to say that you should not try this at your job.
Censored Bodyparts
Jessie Nizewitz, a cast member from the first season of "Dating Naked," shockingly discovered that the show's editors had not censored her private parts during a wrestling scene on the beach. She filed a $10 million lawsuit against Viacom in 2014, citing emotional damages, but her suit was dismissed in 2015.
