Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Amy Paffrath, DATING NAKED follows romance seekers, as they remove their clothes and go on dates in a remote exotic locale. In each one-hour episode of Season 1, one man and one woman each go on dates with three different people over a three-day period. Whether they're ziplining, body painting, horseback riding, or hiking, these couples look beyond their physical features and really get to know each other. At the end of the episode, each of the two daters picks the person with whom they feel the strongest connection and wish to continue dating back home. On Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, VH1 premiered the second season of DATING NAKED with a new title -- DATING NAKED: PLAYING FOR KEEPS -- and a new format. Season 2, once again hosted by Amy Paffrath and set on a romantic tropical island, now features two primary daters, Kerri and Chris, as they search for love. Each week, two new men and two new women strip down for a shot at igniting a spark with these two primary daters. At the end of each 60-minute episode, Kerri and Chris each pick the one person they connected with the most to be their 'keeper,' and ask them to remain on the island. Chris is a 27-year-old financial consultant/account from San Diego, CA, who moved to America's Finest City to start his own business in finance, but he didn't take his ex-girlfriend's dream seriously enough and she left him. Kerri is a 25-year-old traveling nurse recruiter from Tampa, FL, who moved there from Ohio after hitting a car while rollerblading in a near-fatal accident and after her boyfriend cheated on her with a girl Kerri handpicked for him. DATING NAKED returned for its third season on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on VH1, with new host Rocsi Diaz and two new main daters: David and Natalie. Shot on location in Bora Bora, the two explore the art of romance, free of preconceived notions, stereotypes -- and clothes. Each week, two new men and women strip down for a shot at igniting a spark with the primary daters -- but in the end, only one can win their hearts. Over the course of 12 one-hour episodes the competition gets hot as sexy new singles arrive on the island each week, vying for David and Natalie's affections.
On Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, VH1 premiered the Season 3 finale of DATING NAKED, immediately following a five-hour marathon (4-9pm) of encore episodes.. In the season ender, "Returns & Exchanges," after 12 weeks, things get even more complicated as a new pair of old flames return to the island to heat things up! The time has come: David and Natalie must choose their final Keeper.
