Even that show Naked Attraction wasn’t this horrifying, though we’re sure there’s a case for both. Channel 4 describes their new show as a "daring new dating series that starts where some good dates might end - naked." Here's how it works: one lucky contestant is faced with six potential dates, whose faces are hidden but whose bodies, from the waist down to begin with, are on full display.The show producers then — somehow (we do hope it’s legal) — find eight people from around the country who look exactly like this imaginary person, and give them number badges.The original contestant who dreamed up this perfect-looking partner then gets plonked into a nice modern house with these eight ‘clones’.Movie romances have simply not been enough and instead, we've been watching real people try (sometimes, too hard) to find love in what many would call a hopeless place - national television.
The stars are thrown into mixers, therapy sessions and even flirting classes by their dating agency in order to up their dating game.The premise of this nightmarish clusterfeck of a programme is simple but just as horrific as its pun title suggests.Single contestants looking for The One are invited to design their ideal partner using Sims-style body-building technology, specifying everything (physical) from their skin colour to their choice of outfit.The woman calling the shots on last night’s first episode designed a dream boyfriend who was ‘mixed race’ with ‘quirky, stylish dress sense’ (a snapback cap and red shoes. She later admitted, while being driven to meet her eight new boyfriends: ‘The thought of having eight dream guys in one house is terrifying.’ You’re telling us.Were we to imagine a Black Mirror episode about dating, this would be it.
