‘Dating Naked’ Contestant Sues After VH1 Showed Her Naked

Jessie Nizewitz, who appeared on an episode of the VH1 reality show “Dating Naked,” has filed a lawsuit for $10 million against the show’s producers for allegedly showing actual naked footage of her body.

The 28-year-old New York model said an episode that aired on July 31 included an uncensored shot of her crotch, and she was subsequently insulted and humiliated on the Internet. The scene featured Nizewitz performing a playful wrestling move on her date while both of them were naked.

“Although I went on this show knowing that I would be nude while taping it, I was told that my private parts would be blurred for TV,” said Nizewitz in a statement. “If you watch an episode, you will see that the blur actually makes it less revealing than a bikini would. Obviously, I did not expect the world to see my private parts, this is not what I anticipated or what any other contestants on the show anticipated.”

VH1 had no comment on the suit.

Contestants on “Dating Naked” frequently have their genitalia blurred out for viewing, while most of their body, including their buttocks, is regularly visible. Nizewitz noted that, in addition to her humiliation, the man she was dating at the time the episode aired has not called her since.

The suit, filed on Wednesday by attorney Matthew Blit, targets VH1 operator Viacom, Firelight Entertainment and Lighthearted Entertainment.
