She signed up for a show that depicted her naked while dating naked men, but Dating Naked cast member Jessie Nizewitz was horrified they actually showed her private parts on television.
Nizewitz claims when she signed on to be on the revealing reality series, the network said they would censor any footage that showed her privates, even though she was naked for the entire footage of the show.

However, VH1 failed to blur out a specific shot that clearly displayed her naked crotch area on air, and Nizewitz has decided to sue the network for their fumble. Because of her “severe emotional distress,” and “mental anguish,” the model wants VH1 to pay her $10 million.
“I felt lied to, manipulated and used. I was horrified,” Nizewitz told the New York Post. “I immediately started getting text messages. Everyone saw it.”

The shot in question took place on the third episode of the reality series when she and a potential boyfriend were getting frisky on a beach, rolling around wrestling in the nude. As they frolicked in the sand with their naked backsides towards the camera, her lower parts could easily be seen and were not blurred out by producers.
After the blunder made news all over once the show aired, shocked viewers commented on the matter all over social media. As a result, Nizewitz claims, the male contestant she was on the sand with never contacted her again.
She feels the network also cost her a potential relationship with him in addition to the humiliation she already suffered from the naked snafu.
“He never called me again after the show aired,” she told the Post. “I would have hoped we could have had a long-term relationship.”
