“Naked Attraction” is currently the most popular show on Max, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
This controversial British dating show surged up the trending list after the first six seasons joined Max last week. The premise is somewhat simple: Six potential partners are presented to a single person looking for love, but they’re naked and hidden behind colorful booths that gradually reveal their bodies from the bottom up during successive elimination rounds.
Since premiering in the U.K. in 2016, “Naked Attraction” has sparked numerous complaints due to its use of nudity, and now that it’s reached American viewers, the backlash has gone international. U.S. critics of the show have also condemned its objectifying and shallow approach to dating.
