Mel B To Become Host Of Reality TV Fitness Show ‘Dance Your Ass Off’
Hot and sexy Spice Girl, Mel B born Melanie Brown will be taking the place of TV host Marissa Jaret Winokur (Broadway musical Hairspray, Pamela Anderson sitcom Stacked, Moesha) on the fitness competition TV show ‘Dance Your Ass Off” for the second season which airs on Oxygen.
According to an Oxygen programming executive Amy Introcaso-Davis, the reason Mel B was the person of choice was because of her commitment to health and fitness. Mel B was also stated to be an inspiration to people that are around her and captures the aspects of the show “Dance Your Ass Off.”
The show “Dance Your Ass Off” is similar to “Dancing with the Stars,” but the difference is that it brings on overweight contestants struggling with their weight. The contestants work with professional dancers that train them for dance routines (hip hop, ballroom, etc.) to be performed in front of a live audience and that will be judged by a panel of judges (Danny Teeson, a lifestyle coach/dancing expert, actress Lisa Ann Walter, and professional dancer Mayte Garcia). The bonus for the show is that the contestants hope to lose weight during the process and this will determine if they stay on the show since it will be combined with their dance score for an overall score. Those who don’t make the cut will get sent home each week.
As for Mel B, the singer says that she’s excited about being the host for “Dance Your Ass Off” and is looking forward to working with Oxygen to cheer on the contestants looking to dance their pounds off.
The censored formed of the show is aired as “Dance Your A** Off” for television and promotional purposes.
