Will This Queer Couple Survive Being “Stripped” Of Everything On TV?

Patty and Rai learn to live without their material possessions.

Bravo is known for its reality shows. Whether it’s the insanely popular Real Housewives franchise or newer series like Below Deck and Summer House, Bravo has the reality game on lock.

Now the network is hoping to create a word-of-mouth hit with their new series, Stripped, which is about—yup, you guessed it: people getting naked.

But that’s not all.

Not only do the contestants have to strip down (in front of a camera crew, mind you) but their belongings are placed in a storage container half-mile away from their home and each day—for 21 days—they can only retrieve one item from the container.

On tonight’s episode of Stripped, newlyweds Patty and Rai have decided to accept the challenge and give up all of their possessions for three weeks. Will the couple survive?

“It’s like having a best friend, soulmate, sister,” Rai explains in a new clip from the episode, when she describes being with Patty.

“It was very easy to fall in love with her soul.”

In the scene Patty and Rai call Patty’s mother, who she is close with, but Patty reveals that she hasn’t told her father about Rai, even though they are married.

Will being on Stripped give her the courage to finally tell her father about her wife?

Patty and Rai discovered losing all of your material possessions can have a profound effect on the way you see the world.

Since filming their episode, Patty said that they have become “more grateful and appreciative of what we have.”

“It helped me appreciate the small things like getting out of the shower and having a towel,” Rai told NewNowNext. “You get caught up with day to day things, but I don’t get stressed out those anymore. You can have nothing and still be happy.”

Below, watch the exclusive clip from tonight’s episode.
 

Stripped airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on Bravo.
