Naked Attraction contestant sparked outrage with rude reaction to being rejected on show

Naked Attraction contestant sparked outrage with rude reaction to being rejected on show

We're getting hints of the Inbetweeners from this viral clip...

It goes without saying that appearances aren't everything in life, don't judge a book by its cover and all that malarkey.

That is, for everything except for Channel 4 hit show Naked Attraction, where people are quite literally judged for their appearances.

The show features Brits stripping down from head to toe for their bodies to be judged or even appreciated by contestants, hoping to be picked for a date.

But even in this scenario, manners are key, and there's no real reason to be nasty, though one participant managed to infuriate viewers with his 'rude' reaction, which you can see here:

Getting naked on TV must leave you quite vulnerable anyway, with a rejection being a big blow to the ego, surely.

However, this lad's choice of words after he was eliminated resulted in widespread backlash on social media that would knock his ego even more.

In an episode back in 2022, Leon was against five other men, managing to make it to contestant Nameya's final three, but when put up against one man and one woman, Leon was sent packing despite not looking too upset.

But then came the golden moment, as he told the camera: "It's one of them. You win some, you lose some, but there’s plenty more cl*nge in the sea."

Despite his nonchalant attitude and impressive handling of being sent home without a date - having gotten up on stage butt naked to be judged on each singular body part for all the world to see - Leon became the subject of scorn.

The rejected contestant may have thought he was just going home with his tail between his legs, but he also faced a social media tirade, with X users having been left outraged by his language.

One user stated: "Plenty more cl*nge in the sea. Stay classy, Leon."

"Leon you dirty b*stard! CL*NGE!?#NakedAttraction," another wrote.

Others were left bewildered as to how the term had been allowed on national television. "Did orange just use the word cl*nge on National tv???," one questioned.

Another drilled home the reality of the show: "O M F G - someone said the word 'cl*nge' on the TV programme that where people judge each other purely on their nude appearance! I mean - WHAT NEXT?!

"His c*ck isn't big enough' OR 'Her a*se isn't round enough' FFS, drop the pretence ppl ... #NakedAttraction."

Although it turns out not everyone is so sure what the word in question actually means (perhaps its best that way) as one user stated: "I know I’m getting on a bit but what’s a cl*nge #NakedAttraction."

However, ultimately, for anyone who grew up in Britain in the 2000s, you'd know straight away that Leon's words - while crude - are simply a quote from hit sitcom The Inbetweeners.

In similar Jay Cartwright style, one user joked: "Look I don't watch Naked Attraction but it seems like the nation had the opportunity to get 'cl*nge' trending and has failed so I'm disappointed in you all."
