'Dating Naked' returns July 15 with new format, no clothes

Posted on

The weather is starting to warm up, which means everyone can start peeling off a few layers of clothing. And on VH1, that means taking it all off. Season 2 of Dating Naked—the “romantic” reality show on which birthday suits are required—will debut July 15 at 9 p.m. 

If you’re thinking that the show will look exactly the same this year, we’d like to strip you of that notion. EW has learned that instead of offering up new contestants every week, the second season focuses on two primary daters, who will remain with the show for the entire 10-episode season. Our two extremely brave souls are Kerri Cipriani, a 25-year-old traveling nurse recruiter from Tampa whose (ex-)boyfriend cheated on her with a woman whose phone number she dared him to try to procure, and Chris Aldrich, a 27-year-old financial consultant/accountant from San Diego who “lost the girl of his dreams when he didn’t take her or her dreams seriously.”

Each week, Chris and Kerri will embark on nude romantic adventures with two new suitors. At the end of the episode, they can each select one of them to remain on the island. At one point this season, s date will feature a pair of love seekers making papier mache molds of each other’s butts. Who said courtship without clothes can’t be all artsy and stuff?

Hosted again by Amy Paffrath, Season 2 was filmed earlier this year on an island in the Phillippines. Last season, which created six couples, culminated with a naked not-exactly-a-wedding-let’s-call-it-a-commitment-ceremony, which you can relive right here. You can also sneak your first peek at the newest batch of undressed contestants in this exclusive-to-EW trailer.
