TV's Most Daring Dating Show is Also the Most Successful with 60% Success Rate*

SANTA MONICA, CA - August 5, 2014 - VH1's "Dating Naked" began with a bold question as its premise: "Do you find love easier when you truly have nothing to hide?" The answer is a resounding "I do!" as VH1 announces an astounding 60% matchmaking success rate* and the first "Dating Naked Wedding Special," premiering Thursday, September 18 at 9 PM ET/PT.

This season a rotating group of frustrated singles answered the show's challenge to "bare it all" in the quest for love. After embarking on a series of blind dates, twelve people currently consider themselves "in a relationship" with someone they met on the show. Now one couple is ready to take their relationship to the next level by exchanging vows in front of family, friends, and some of their fellow new "Dating Naked" couples. Who will tie the knot? Tune in to "Dating Naked" on Thursday, August 21 at 9pm ET/PT for the reveal.

"Dating Naked" is a one-hour weekly series that explores the pursuit of romance free of pre-conceived notions, stereotypes -- and clothes. Filmed in a remote exotic locale, each close-ended episode follows a man and a woman both going on three naked dates, including two with other suitors and one with each other. At the end of the episode, the romance seekers analyze what they've learned from their dates and themselves before deciding whether or not to move forward with a prospective love match. Once everyone has stripped away the artifices of our modern world and revealed their ultimate, honest selves, the results are surprising. Hosted by Amy Paffrath, the series consists of 10 one-hour episodes edited according to network standards.

"Dating Naked" was created and is produced by Lighthearted Entertainment. Executive producers are Howard Schultz, Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler. Executive Producers for VH1 are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Fernando Mills and Tricia Biggio.

*60% success rate based on 6 couples formed out of 10 episodes.
