Let’s Talk About RULE ZERO

August 22, 2014

I saw the headline in the Daily Mail the other day, and I skipped it.  Then I thought about it.  Okay, I’ll make a comment.  Here’s the headline:

‘Horrified’ Dating Naked contestant sues VH1 after network failed to blur out her crotch before episode aired

 So, let’s unpack this a bit…

  • There’s a show called “Dating Naked” on television.
  • Contestants actually agree to be taped for some period of time naked with people they really don’t know
  • This video is edited and then shown on the above-mentioned show
  • Contestants are then “horrified” that they might actually be shown naked

I’m sure there are plenty of people who would state that there’s a rule one involved here: make sure you get to screen the video before you might be shown naked.

I’m all for RULE ZERO.  Don’t ever let someone take a picture or video of you naked.  Ever.

Here’s one of the best lines from the article:

Ms Nizewitz also told the Post that the incident ruined a ‘budding relationship.’ She said the man she was dating never called her again after the show aired.

‘He was employed, Jewish, in his 30s and that’s pretty much ideal,’ Nizewitz said.

So you don’t think that agreeing to appear naked on a show might not have turned said person off in the first place?

And lest you think that this is a one-off stupid, there’s always the headline about the upcoming show about people having sex in a box and then talking about it.  No, I won’t link to that one.

And people wonder why I keep moving farther back in the woods…
