Naked Attraction is a weird show; we’ve known that for a while now. Supermodel Chrissy Teigen, however, was not prepared for the barrage of genitalia that awaited her as she flicked on the telly in her London hotel room last night.
The star – who is married to crooner John Legend – sent out a stream of tweets detailing her shock and amusement at discovering the bizarre dating show, in which daters judge one another based on the aesthetics of their genitalia.
Uh there is something called Naked Attraction on here in london and WHAT TF IS THIS it's dating based on genitals. Like I'm seeing pp's— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017
Oh my god they are just looking at genitalia. It's zooming in on penis and balls— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017
We know, Chrissy, we know.
As was the case for many of us, disgust gave way to curiosity. She carried on watching, delivering a bit of commentary on the episode:
Josh: "if I could change one thing about myself it'd probably be uhhh my uhhh feet they're uhhh too big heh heh" oh wow josh— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017
Hilariously, she switched the channel to tennis when room service came knocking.

But it seems the shamelessness of British dating shows has won her over. Hours later she was tweeting about her next discovery, Celebs Go Dating.

Naked Attraction has been heavily criticised since it began in 2016, and while complaints flooded in during its first episode, broadcasting regulators Ofcom decided not to investigate because it did not breach any of their guidelines.
The first episode of series one contained 282 shots of male genitalia and 96 of female over the 48-minute programme, averaging around five penises and two vaginas per minute, which is probably more than you’re likely to spot in The Bachelor, or any other US equivalent for that matter.
