‘Dating Naked’ Season 3 Premiere Recap: One Guy Gets Sent Home After Making a ‘Mangina’

Bet you’ve never had a first date like this one! It’s time to take a trip back to the island of clothes-less connections to undress emotions because Dating Naked is back. Season 3 of the VH1 dating show takes place in Bora-Bora and follows contestants David from Atlanta and Natalie from Milwaukee as they try to find love — in their birthday suits.

Up Close and Personal

There was no room for shyness in the Wednesday, June 29, season premiere! David and Natalie didn’t waste any time — they simultaneously got naked and even agreed to remove their bottoms together by counting down beforehand. Both admitted to being nervous, but the more apprehensive one of the two was clearly David, who couldn’t keep his forehead from dripping with sweat.

“Looking at Natalie, I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?'” he told the camera. “Natalie’s, there’s … you see the sweat. The sweat … that’s Natalie! You’ve got to keep your mind going. Six times eight … baseball … all these different things to make sure your head’s in the right place.”

Once they were both naked, David quipped, “Now the hard part’s over … That was awkward!” Way to keep your mind out of the gutter!

After the formalities were out of the way, the duo went on to have a pleasant date. Natalie referred to David as the “full package.” Yes, the naked puns are endless!

Trying to Score

“I’m not usually naked until maybe the end of the date, but I don’t want to be too invasive, too ‘rapey’ — chicks, women don’t like that,” David revealed. Nothing gets past this guy! 

Natalie’s second date kicked off (quite literally!) with a game of soccer with Vinny from Detroit, who couldn’t keep his eyes off Natalie, or his mind on the game …

“Just a week ago, I was out knocking doors, talking to little old ladies trying to sell them cable TV packages, and now I’m out here trying to sell my package to Natalie,” Vinny quipped. “Hopefully, she takes the sale, and I give her a triple play: That’s internet, cable and phone.” What a charmer, that one!

We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

It was time for another lady to join the mix. This time, it was Dorothy from Versailles, New York. “I’m actually really comfortable being naked. Yeah, I feel like I look better naked,” Dorothy said. “If I were a guy, I would totally take me out. I would be like, ‘Yeah, I’m hanging out with Dorothy tonight because she’s f–king awesome.’ And I am.” Please, don’t hold back!

She continued, “I am the person I want to date. I think I’m a f–king delight.” And apparently, Dorothy wasn’t alone. On their date, David said, “I’m jealous of myself right now!”

It was love at first sight for these two. Or was it lust at first sight? Either way, they had possibly the cutest date, complete with mermaid tails for a swim in the ocean. They ended the night snuggled in each other’s arms. Awww!

Trouble in Paradise

If three’s company, then what’s four? When Natalie and Vinny met up with Dorothy and David at the house, the awkwardness was intense. Uh-oh, was this a double date gone wrong?

Natalie said, “Dorothy is absolutely beautiful. I was like, ‘I’m jealous of your gorgeous, God-given body, and I kind of just want to kiss your date.’”

Then as if on cue, Vinny decided to stand by the pool and perform a “trick” of sorts as he tucked his … package between his legs for all to see. “That’s what you call the man-gina, and then you go like that, and that’s a fruit basket,” he explained.

Natalie shuddered and whispered, “Oh, my God — I want to die,” as Vinny was shown peeing into the ocean. Later on, Natalie had to put an intoxicated Vinny to bed. As she left his room, he shouted, “I love you!” But will that love be reciprocated? Probably not.

Clearly, Natalie wished she had been on a date with someone else: “I had this great emotional connection with David, and I kind of miss him, even though he’s right there.”

A Pantless Pat Down

Nautica, a bodybuilder from New York, explained why she decided to go on the show. “I’m from New York City, and you meet people out, they always want to take you home,” she said. “It’s all about getting in your pants. So for once, I met someone naked already, maybe now they can focus on getting to know me?” Makes sense!

Shortly after meeting, the two opened up about each other’s family backgrounds as they rubbed each other from head to toe. What better way to get to know someone than over a naked massage?

Drown in Love

There’s no denying that Zakk, firefighter by day and metal-band lead singer by night, was a cutie, but were his looks enough to compete with the connection Natalie had with David?

“I loved being able to be a cute little lifeguard and go out there and save David’s life,” Natalie said mistakenly. Uhhh …

Zakk’s life,” she finally corrected herself. “His name is Zakk.” There you go, Natalie.

Their date got an A+ in originality. The pair pretended to be lifeguards in order to save each other from “drowning.” They had a surfboard and everything! They just didn’t have swimsuits … but honestly, who needed them?

Hate to See You Go, Love to Watch You Leave

Before long, it was time to say goodbye. Natalie faced an easy choice, and kicked Vinny to the curb, while David was more conflicted. In the end, he chose to test the waters with Nautica and sent Dorothy packing.

“Let him go,” Dorothy said. “Let him miss me. It’s OK … go.” Now that’s the spirit!

Meanwhile, Zakk was upbeat about getting to stick around. “I am so stoked,” he said. “Natalie is definitely going to get a kiss at some point. I’m ready to prove that I’m not just her keeper this week, but her keeper for possibly the rest of her life.” Sounded like Zakk is falling quickly!

Meanwhile, Vinny took his rejection like a true gentleman: “I mean, if she can’t handle what I do in the streets, she ain’t going to like what I do in the sheets.” Classy.
