Los Angeles – Jessie Nizewitz, an ex-stripper who appeared on the VH1 Dating Naked series has lost her $10m lawsuit against Viacom and its producers for violating her privacy and failing to blur out her private parts, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The reality dating show sees contestants go on dates in the buff.
Jessie filed the complaint last year after appearing on the show claiming that she suffered ‘emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and embarrassment’ from having her private parts shown on television.
The defendants, Lighthearted Entertainment and Firelight Entertainment, argued that the contestant was aware of the conditions of the show and initially comfortable with it. She had signed a consent form to being filmed in the nude and that the footage would be allowed to be broadcasted without restraint.
Jessie argued that she had orally agreed with producers that her genitals would be blurred out.
The judge ruled that the signed consent forms overrule any oral promises made and that she was aware of the nudity when signing on to the show. The case has been dismissed.
Lesson here folks read the fine print before you sign!
