Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Stripped is a reality series where people agree to have everything they own "stripped away," including their clothes. It features naked people (all private parts are blurred) who have accepted the challenge to live in urban areas without material goods. There's a lot of bleeped cursing, some strong sexual references, and discussion of designers like Oscar de la Renta and brands like Givenchy. Occasionally arguments break out between cast members. Mature themes, including conversations about disintegrating relationships and getting pregnant, are discussed.
Is It Any Good?
This social experiment challenges participants to live a full life without the practical and luxury goods we all rely on every day. They are positioned to think carefully about what they want versus what they actually need, both to survive and to be happy. Inevitably, contestants must also think about how their lives are driven by their material possessions, often at the cost of personal relationships and other life experiences.
These messages are constructive ones, but Stripped dilutes the overall experience by offering participants too many loopholes to access material goods throughout the three weeks. Furthermore, the moments of reflection are brief, and much of the show's entertainment value comes from watching participants choose (and use) coveted items from storage. But it's an interesting premise, and one that may get you thinking about the amount of stuff you have in your life.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
