This Is How Much Naked Attraction Contestants Get Paid

A former Naked Attraction contestant has revealed how much you actually get paid if you're prepared to bare all on the TV show.

Gavin, from Edinburgh, revealed that if you appear on the show there is no financial payout. Contestants are only paid if they are left on standby and are not used on the controversial TV dating show.

The lack of financial insentive could make you question why anyone would agree to appear naked on the small screen for free, but Gavin said it was about more than that.


He told iNews: "You don't get paid if you're on the show. If you're on standby and you don't appear on the show then you get paid £75 for being in the room."

Instead, the bar manager said he appeared on Naked Attraction out of a sense of patriotic duty. He said: "They put up an advert on Facebook and it said there was a lack of interest from Scottish people.

"A few friends tagged me in it and said this would be perfect for you because half of Edinburgh has seen me naked at some point - I have a bit of a tendency to take my kit off - so I took them up on their offer.

"Then I applied and got invited for an audition."

If you're applying for a show where you will be spending all your time naked, it is pretty obvious that the audition process will have a similar dress code.

Gavin revealed that he did the whole 45 minute interview completely naked. He said: "I went down to Newcastle, sat down and chatted with a camerawoman and a male interviewee.

"Then they said 'can you take your clothes off now and pitch yourself to us?' It lasted about 45 minutes. It wasn't so awkward, they made me feel at ease."

Surprisingly, Gavin said that on the day of filming there was little competition between the participants and that the people who appear on the show are like minded.

He said: "It was all very good fun, good banter. It's sort of what you get in a football dressing room, everyone taking the p*ss out of themselves. Most of the people who appear on the show are quite like-minded."
