Get Ready to Dance Your Ass Off!

Oxygen has come out with a totally new take on the reality dance competition genre, with the launch of Dance Your Ass Off, premiering Monday, June 29 at 10 pm.

Twelve finalists -- weighing in at a combined total of nearly 3,000 pounds -- compete to lose the most weight as they, put nicely, dance their tushes off.

Each contestant is paired with a professional dancer who will teach them weekly routines, ranging from ballroom to hip hop to pole dancing! Their final score will be a combination of the points they received from their dance and their weight loss for that week.

Dance Your Ass Off is hosted by Tony Award-winning actress, Marissa Jaret Winokur. Check out the rest of the cast, and see if you can determine who will win!

I think it'll be fascinating to watch the contestants' bodies change as the weeks go on. How much weight do you think they'll lose from start to finish?
