This is one of those trainwrecks that make it hard to look away.
Dance Your Ass Off is a new reality show on the Oxygen network.
It’s basically The Biggest Loser – meets – Dancing With the Stars. Here’s a description from the shows website:
“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”
“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.”
Each contestant has the aid of doctors and nutritionists and physical trainers in addition to their dance coach/partner that teaches them a routine each week.

Damn. I think everyone in that audience is no longer a virgin after those splits followed by air sex.
This show strikes me as a bit off… almost as if it is trying to be a parody of something else that’s not as scary. Seriously, I mean I’m honestly fine with being proud of your body, but the outfits this show is squeezing them into make me think of vinyl sausage casing. I’m not sure they would look good on anyone, no matter what size they were. I’m not even saying that I think they should cover up, but those outfits! Holy Jeebus! Since when did the “homeless 80’s hooker” Halloween costume become sexy?
The facial expressions are hilarious though. Not only from the contestants, but also from this judge, that I think shares my thoughts on a few things:
