Advance Review: Bravo’s Stripped – Can You Survive Without Your Things?


What happens when you give up all your belongs including the clothes on your back for 21 days? Every week a new household finds out. Every day each person can take back one item. What would you choose? How will this affect your relationships? Will you be less prone to materialism?

The premiere features a married couple. The wife (Ali) is a stylist and very attached to her material possessions. The husband (Justin), an accountant, is too to an extent but seems to adjust a lot better. Throughout the three weeks, seeing the different items they choose to bring back is interesting. The differences in priorities slowly start to show. Starting off, Ali wants clothes, she doesn’t want to walk around naked or using leaves and boxes to cover herself. Justin, however, seems to be fine with staying nude another day but wants something comfy to sleep on so the couch it is. Practical choice for sure but bringing it all back requires effort.

Throughout the course of the three weeks, you start to see the shift in how they are with each other and how their possessions are seen. What was once a had to have item is now disposable. Ali was very much a work-aholic at the start of this but the experiment got her thinking about her life choices.

When you’re down to the basics you have a lot to think about, a lot of therapy happens. This type of experiment really helps to make you evaluate your life style. Sure, not everything is going to change but it will help you to see what’s really important. By the end of the experiment, Ali and Justin’s relationship has taken a turn for the better. They’re closer, they had to spend a lot of time together having conversations instead of having distractions.

In this day and age, technology has made it a lot easier but it has also distracted us from the people around us. Material possessions are seen as necessities when in reality you can get by without them. Seeing what items are deemed important and what aren’t is very telling and eye opening.

Stripped premieres on Bravo on December 5th at 10PM.
