Dance Your A** Off- season 2/episode 1- Meet the DANCERS!

I love Dance Your Ass Off. Call it what you will, but to me it is an opportunity for larger folks to do what they love and get healthy while doing it. And you know that doing what you love is my fitness motto!

The first episode focused on the auditions, which the first season really didn't cover. New host Mel B. (of Spice Girls fame) introduces the show and the auditions spanning LA, Dallas, Chicago, and New York to find 25 contestants to narrow down for the 12 spots on the show. The show is a little more like So You Think You Can Dance- Plus Size! We now have a British host and we already had the British judge and the ballroom judge. The show is also showing the contestants in a more serious light now: Real people that have dance training that can't be REAL dancers because they are larger. Last season it was a LITTLE more jokey. I don't want to feel bad about watching this, folks.

The auditions showed there is a lot of talent in these larger packages, and it was hard for the judges to make their final picks. BUT THEY DID!

My fave contestant is Adamme, a make up artist with a lot of swagga.

I am planning on live tweeting during the show, so if you have the Oxygen Network, tune in with me, Mondays at 10/9 central!

  1. These shows are becoming so popular. My BF and I watched one of our favorites last night; Last Comic Standing. It's the same idea as "Dance Your Ass Off", with judges and eliminations, but this is with comedians. Do you want to laugh for two hours straight? You should check it out! This show sounds neat too, I love to watch people dance, especially choreographed dances.
