NEW YORK, NY –– Bravo Media exposes the naked truth behind modern-day America’s obsession with material belongings – from technology to other creature comforts – when “Stripped” premieres Tuesday, December 5 at 10pm ET/PT. This entertaining, yet eye-opening series follows a variety of households including married couples, partners, siblings, friends, single parents, and bachelors, all of whom have their own reasons for exploring what will happen, both physically and psychologically, when they are “stripped” of all their possessions.

Over the course of eight self-contained episodes, each highlighting a unique household, participants are willingly “stripped” of all physical belongings for 21 days. Renouncing every piece of their clothing, furniture, money, hygiene, and beauty products – and all electronic devices – they embark on a journey of self-discovery that will ultimately reveal the core of who they are and what they really “need.” This is not a competition and there is no prize on the line, but every day is a challenge when they are each allowed to take back one item of their choice, reflecting in the rawest possible terms their priorities and values. With drama, humor and plenty of surprises, this emotional journey uncovers how people’s lives and perspectives change once everything they own is taken away.
“Stripped” Rules & Regulations:
1: Participants are stripped of everything they own on day one.
2: Their belongings are placed in a mobile storage container a half-mile away from their home.
3: Only toilet paper, water, and food rations are provided.
4: Each day, participants must find a way to get to their container to retrieve one item each.
In the premiere episode, Ali and her husband Justin, an unlikely Los Angeles couple who has accumulated close to 10,000 items in their home, agree to this 21-day experience hoping to assess and adjust their priorities. A career-driven fashion stylist, with a penchant for all things designer, Ali is often at odds with the more frugal Justin, an accountant with his sights set on growing their family. Now free from distraction and more vulnerable than ever, they are left to focus on each other and contemplate their future.
