Women strip, men judge, viewers outraged in new reality TV show

Thomas Blachman, award-winning jazz musician and judge on the local edition of The X Factor, has a new show on Denmark's public service TV station that's a lot like his other show. Except instead of passing judgement on aspiring pop singers, Blachman and a co-host critique the naked bodies of random women.

A woman stands naked in a room under a harsh spotlight. She’s not allowed to speak, but must stand quietly while two men sit on the couch and assess her physical attributes as a camera zooms in and out on the body parts they are discussing. Sounds like a nightmare, but it’s actually a show on Danish television.

The show, Blachman, was named after its creator, Thomas Blachman, who is the Danish version of Simon Cowell, according to the Telegraph, as well as an award-winning jazz musician and judge on the local edition of The X Factor. Blachman purportedly created the show to get “men discussing the aesthetics of a female body without allowing the conversation to become pornographic or politically correct.” To foster such conversation, a series of women are invited on air to strip and be judged by Blachman and a male guest.
