Chrissy Teigen is in the United Kingdom and stumbled upon Naked Attraction while channel-surfing in her hotel room on Sunday. The English dating show sets couples up based on how much they’re into a nude potential mate. Similar shows abound here in the States, but this one doesn’t shy away from gratuitous naked stuff.
It was popular enough to warrant a second season on British station Channel 4, and Teigen was dumbfounded at, you know, seeing genitals on public TV in a foreign country. Cue the shocked tweetstorm.
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— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017
Oh my god they are just looking at genitalia. It's zooming in on penis and balls— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017
Pretty sure most folks can relate:
I would die if I were the first person eliminated based strictly on genitals— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 10, 2017

Eventually, hotel staff entered her room with food, and she nervously flipped the channel:

For its part, the series has been acclaimed as a body-positive show that celebrates diversity. As Metro writes: “Yes, on the face of it, this is a superficial dating show in the most obvious sense of the word, but it’s streets ahead of boring cisgender shows like Love Island or Take Me Out.”
Watch an episode below, just remember that you’re going to see full-frontal nudity and it’s definitely NSFW.
