Now that the series is in its second season, a newly revamped format is helping to bring vulnerability, honesty and confidence back to the forefront of the dating show genre, one blurred out private area at a time.
Growing up, Paffrath was a fan of the MTV dating show "Singled Out." She worked as a casting assistant on another MTV dating series, "Next," which was produced by Lighthearted Entertainment CEO Howard Schultz.
They're shouting at the TV like, 'Chris, what are you doing?!
' because we see all the devious things she's doing but Chris doesn't.
"Our story team is amazing, they take such great care of our people and make sure they're comfortable and they get a crazy fun experience of a lifetime.
They get to fly to this awesome location, first season was Panama, second season was the Philippines, they get to live in this tropical environment they get to meet people that we are handpicking that hopefully they will connect with." The very nature of the show, taking complete strangers to an exotic location where they are exposed for the world (and TV crew) to see, is a bonding experience too, Paffrath explained.
Amy Paffrath is helping people find love in the craziest way possible!
The bubbly TV personality is the host of VH1's new reality series, "Dating Naked," and she's dishing details on what to expect on the show.She's not required to be on set while the couples are on their dates, so she's free to roam and explore each exotic location."I get a lot of time to really enjoy the beautiful places that we shoot at so I'm very lucky to have that opportunity to film in these incredible locations and really get to soak in the culture of the people and the beauty of it," she gushed."So our show just takes that format and puts them in a dating environment.But the nudity is for the same reason, to strip away barriers and leave them in a very raw, vulnerable position so they have nothing to hide behind." Paffrath worked on a number of production sets in her career. News and had roles in the hit CBS series "2 Broke Girls" and the 2014 horror flick "The Purge: Anarchy." But she admitted that working on the set of "Dating Naked" is unlike anything she's done in the past. "It's probably, I'd say, the most awkward set I've ever been on because yes, people are hanging out naked and I don't think that ever will get normal to me because I'm not a nudist." "It can be very awkward when everyone's just standing around and we're having a conversation about feelings, and I look over and I'm like 'Oh my god, there's a penis! "It is bizarre, but it also it keeps you on your toes." While on set, a typical day for Paffrath would start with a morning briefing where she gets a rundown of everything that's going on in the house.While most of us wait a date or two before taking it all off, the potential partners on this show get it over with immediately -- and Amy thinks it's a pretty great way to start a relationship!
