Thanks to Fleshbot, we are now all too aware of the things our reality television is missing here stateside. Specifically, naked men.
Not just your occasional shirtless Kardashian boyfriend du jour or a Jersey Shore cast member flashing abs at an awards show, beach party, wedding, bar mitzvah, or funeral. No. We're talking the real deal: naked guys with only their hands to hide themselves and plenty of full-on butt, er, bum shots.
The British version of Survivor, called Shipwrecked, is pretty much the same as its American counterpart except that there seems to be a heck of a lot more male nudity.
The naked blokes seem, at least according to the clips we've seen, to exist to serve the women of the island as well as to be ogled by the audience.
Why can't we be more like the British? Why can't our reality television feature more below-the-belt shots? Sure, not all reality shows would be conducive (it would be weird to choose the next American Idol after seeing them all naked, though it could work for The Voice and Adam Levine would definitely participate), but some would! The guys from Deadliest Catch could probably haul crabs just as easily while in the nude. And The Bachelor! Would he not be far more compelling if he gave out those roses in nothing but a cod piece? And we can't forget where this discussion began: Survivor. We propose the next island be Fire Island and that all the contestants must remain fully nude throughout each episode.
Until that day comes, enjoy Britain's nude and naughty Survivor rip-off: Shipwrecked.
