Coming to a tv set near you…. twelve contestants weighing nearly 3,000 lbs…..with one common goal….. “to go from an eating machine to a dancing machine…. in Oxygen’s new dance/weight loss competition series Dance Your Ass Off, hosted by TONY Award®-winning actress Marissa Jaret Winokur“.
Bringing dance and diet together, Dance Your Ass Off features talented, full-figured contestants who will have to lose to win.
Each contestant is paired with a professional dance partner who will train him or her for weekly stage performances — ranging from Hip Hop, to Ballroom and even Pole Dancing!
Then they shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges.
The judges score the routines, and then the contestants weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which determines who is sent home each week.
….and the winner of the show gets $100,000
Of course, in addition to their professional dance partner, the contestants are provided with their own individual lofts, a doctor, nutritionist, fitness trainer, choreographer, costume designer, Photoshop expert and a “well-stocked common room that features an “eat” cabinet full of fruits and healthy snacks, and a “cheat” cabinet full of doughnuts, potato chips and candy bars.
So, here’s my question:
As the contestants “shake and rattle their rolls” towards health, fitness and $100,000, are we supposed to be laughing with them….
….or laughing at them?
hahahahahahahaha….white people dancing
Anyway, the show starts tonight on the Oxygen network.
