'Buying Naked' (TLC)

TV executives are slowly realizing that people will watch other humans engage in almost any kind of mundane activity — as long as said humans are naked. It is conceivably with that in mind that TLC greenlighted this show that encompasses everything you love about competitive real-estate reality shows (Million-Dollar Listing; Flipping Out; Flip That House) and sets it in Pasco County, Florida, a.k.a. the "Nudist Capital of the World." Our guide is Jackie Youngblood, the savvy, excessively Southern listing agent who leads viewers through a land of single-family homes and swinging genitalia. Like her televised real-estate agent forebears, she's quippy as hell, but she's got the added benefit of being surprisingly cool about the overwhelming level of nakedness around her (she stays clothed, but doesn't blink at the fact that she's the only one who does). Viewers also learn fun nudist facts via pop-up trivia bubbles ("Nudists greet with handshakes. Hugging is not recommended."), but mostly, you should stay for insightful Jackie-isms. "Nudists don't wear clothes," she quips. "However, when it comes to money, they have deep pockets."
