VH1’s popular reality series “Dating Naked” has added former “Entertainment Tonight” co-host and correspondent Rocsi Diaz as host of the show’s upcoming third season, TheWrap has learned exclusively.
Diaz is a multi-platform broadcast personality who was also the co-host of BET’s “106 & Park.” Earlier in her career, she hosted a number of popular FM radio programs across the U.S. as well as BET’s nationally syndicated radio program “106 & Park Weekend Countdown” and her own radio program “Rocsi on the Radio.”
This season once again features two main daters, David and Natalie, as they search for love on a tropical island paradise. Shot on location in Bora Bora, the two explore the art of romance, free from the burden of the outside world and their clothes.
Each week, two new men and women will strip down for a shot with David and Natalie. Over the course of 12 one-hour episodes the competition gets hot as new singles arrive on the island each week, vying for David and Natalie’s affections.
“Dating Naked” was created and is produced by Lighthearted Entertainment. Executive producers are Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler. Executive Producers for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Tricia Biggio.
“Dating Naked” returns for a third season on June 29 at 9 p.m./8c on VH1.
Read David and Natalie’s bios below.
David was raised in a strict, yet dysfunctional family. His parents waited until he was in college to divorce, and he views this experience as an example of what not to do in a relationship. Recently single, his career as a consultant is taking off, and he’s ready to find his life partner on the beach — and in the buff — in Bora Bora.
Looks can be deceiving, and despite appearances, Natalie has suffered her fair share of hardships. Mauled by a dog at age 2, she was teased for her scars as a child. Despite her parents’ divorce and a difficult breakup, Natalie remains optimistic about love and hopes that when she strips away her clothes and emotional defenses, she’ll meet the love of her life.
