Married at First Sight, Dating Naked & Candidly Nicole (NSFW)

I’ve decided to forgo the typical “What I’m Wearing/Eating/Reading/Crying About” post and talk about something that really matters – Reality TV. Since I’ve been home on break, I’ve been spending a lot of time in front of the tube and have even been testing out different networks like VH1 and F.Y.I (am I bold or am I BOLD?) so that you, reader dearest, don’t have to!

Welcome to America: land of the free to be on Reality TV and home of the brave enough to get married to a total stranger/potential serial killer! Just kidding, getting married to a complete stranger isn’t a completely foreign concept as arranged marriages have been around for centuries, but on Married at First Sight couples have put all of their faith into our nation’s finest sexperts (one of which gave my class “The Talk”) and relationship junkies: sexologist – Dr. Logan Levkoff, spiritualist – Greg Epstein, psychologist – Dr. Joseph Cilona, and sociologist – Dr. Pepper Schwartz. The series follows three couples that have decided to take the plunge and become part of a social experiment that requires them to get married without any prior knowledge of their spouse. Each couple has thirty days to get know each other and at the end of the thirty days they can choose to either stay married or have their marriage annulled. The couples get married instead of just moving in together so that they are forced to work on their relationship and learn to fight for it. So far, two couples seem to be on the fast track to a long-lasting relationship while the third couple is struggling. Check out a clip below:

You can watch Married At First Sight on F.Y.I on Tuesdays at 9 PM EST. Best of luck to all parties involved!

Yes, the time has come for us all to release our inhibitions (clothes) and to throw caution (or our towels) to the wind. VH1’s new series Dating Naked premiered a few weeks ago and I tuned in because the concept was quite intriguing. I mean can you imagine hanging out, completely naked with someone that you just met – and without a social lubricant (green smoothies… kombucha… organic medjool dates)? No. Well, that’s what reality TV is for – to broaden our horizons show you the unthinkable. Each episode features two main contestants that go on a date with each other. After their date, they have the opportunity to go on two more dates with “satellite” contestants. At the end of each episode, the main contestants get to choose if they would like to go on another date with each other or go on a date with another one of the contestants. I’ve only seen the first two episodes, and I’m not sure if I will continue to watch because each episode features new contestants and the show doesn’t follow up with the old ones.

I wonder how the host, Amy Paffrath, feels?! Tune in on Thursdays @ 9 PM EST on VH1!

And last, but not least, Nicole Richie has returned to television in a cheeky reality TV show dealing with serious issues like height-impairement, parallel parking, and whether or not her famous father, Lionel Richie, has ever needed to use Viagra. I absolutely love Candidly Nicole! The show was inspired by her hilarious tweets. Recent episodes feature a trip to a gay chicken farm in which Nicole says she can “feel [the chicken’s] tolerance” and a visit to the podiatrist where says, “I have to wear heels. There are some things that you just have to do like you have to be Asian” to her doctor. Check out this clip of Nicole “getting down with her bad self:”

Watch Candidly Nicole on VH1 on Thursdays at 10 PM EST

I don’t know about you but I definitely feel inspired to go on a naked date or get married to a serial killer stranger! Tweet at me when your watching these shows and let me know what you think!

UNT,
