Naked Attraction star bared all on show to stop ‘spiteful girls’ leaking nudes
A singleton revealed he bared all on TV’s Naked Attraction to stop "spiteful girls" threatening to leak nude photos of him.
Rob Ross, 31, said women he had dated had vowed to share private snaps of him after their relationships had broken down.
Appearing nude on the Channel 4 dating show proved to be the perfect `reverse Uno card’ as it took away any power they had over him.
The security worker from Southend-On-Sea, Essex, was on the first episode watched by eight million people in 2016.
He said: "There are some spiteful girls out there. They'd say stuff like 'I've got photos and stuff’ if it didn't end on good terms.
"I thought, `Well, do your worst, because eight million people have seen my penis. It doesn't matter. You can send it to anyone.’.
"When somebody first says it, you do think 'Ah, s***’. You get a little bit panicky.
"But it got to the point where I thought the best way to handle this was to do something jokey with it.
"A lot of people on TikTok said, `That is a smart move'.
"It's a reverse Uno card. I made a joke and a prat out of myself so nobody can say anything.
"If you nip it in the bud and take it as a joke people know they'll have no ammunition to hit out at you.’"
Rob found himself targeted after appearing on clothed dating show Take Me Out in 2011.
But he still gets fan messages about his appearance on Naked Attraction which is still showing on Netflix.
"I still get people messaging, 'I just saw your penis on TV’,’’ he said.
"The show is still relevant today. At the time I wasn't too confident with my appearance but going on the show was a good confidence boost.
"I had good feedback from people who said I helped motivate them to be confident with their bodies.’’
Fans backed Rob’s bare-all strategy.
One wrote online: "Modern problems require modern solutions.’’
"What a power move,’’ said another.
One TikTok user said: |Talk about throwing the reverse Uno card at them, genius.’"
Ross appeared without clothes yet again once again on This Morning in July.
The bearded man told presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes how he felt going on the show helped him gain "more confidence" in his looks and he has had "good feedback" since.
None more so than from his own mum who he explained watched the show with him through her fingers
"My mum watched it with me like this. She was proud of me. All my friends and family have been supportive.
