If the latest batch of reality dating shows has told us anything, it's that some people will do anything to find the one. 

Even strip down to nothing on the very first date in front of a production team.

In a new VH1 series, Dating Naked, lonesome contestants take their clothes off before heading on a date with a potential significant other.
