Adam Zkt. Eva (Adam zoekt Eva, Dutch for Adam seeks Eve) is a Dutch reality television relationship show produced by Reinout Oerlemans which first aired in 2014, on RTL 5. The show's novelty is that all participants are naked, with an additional twist in that a second candidate (also naked) is introduced halfway through the program to compete for the main character's affections. Presenter and former model Nicolette Kluijver, who left BNN, hosts the program. The show was shot in the Pacific Ocean, on Mogo Mogo Island of the Pearl Islands, Panama. Season 1 contained 6 episodes. Season 2 contained 8 episodes.
A reviewer for de Volkskrant was not impressed and called it just another dating show (instead of the advertised "unique love experiment"). Tweets by Dutch TV personalities expressed mainly surprise.
