Burn, Baby, Burn; Dance Your Ass Off , Mondays @ 10/9C, only on Oxygen
About the Show:
Twelve finalists, nearly 3,000 lbs, one 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.
“Dance Your Ass Off” has assembled a world-class team of weight loss specialists, including Dr. Robert Huizenga (NBC’s “Biggest Loser”), nutrition specialist Meg Werner Moreta, R.D. and Crunch trainer Lee Wall. This team will give the contestants a chance to reach their maximum weight loss potential and undergo the ultimate lifestyle transformation.
But even with all this support, it won’t be easy. In a nod to real-life temptations, the contestants’ kitchen contains a “Cheat Pantry” loaded with the very snacks and goodies that helped land the contestants on the show.
*The premiere of Dance Your Ass Off was the biggest premiere in Oxygen history. The show brought in an incredible 1.3 million viewers!*
