Dance Your Ass Off? But I need it to keep my legs on….
Can you see my eyebrow arch in annoyance? Because it is arching. I’m going to get wrinkles because of shit like this:
That’s right fatties, want to dance? Well you better LOSE THAT WEIGHT. I had held a distant hope that perhaps they were just going to let these talented individuals get back in shape and dance for prizes. But alas, my hopes were dashed upon reading the website.
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.
So essentially, no matter how well you dance, if you don’t lose weight you won’t win. Let’s totally ignore the fact that you’re working out constantly and potentially gaining muscle which weighs more than fat. But if you don’t lose lose lose you’re just LAZY. Nothing beats starving yourself while simultaneously working your ass off and causing injuries Healthy Weight Loss UR Doin it WRNG.
I also can’t decide if they think fatties are HILARIOUS or pathetic victims of their own gluttony, or really, anything? I mean, I guess I will never know because I will not be watching this show. (If I could get Oxygen taken off my cable, I would.)
I will not be watching the show because it offends fat people everywhere who are already great dancers without losing weight, promotes poor ideas about exercise and weight loss, and perhaps most importantly their “about the show” page contains possibly the worst pun ever:
Then they shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges.
I rest my case. This show sucks.
P.S. Et Tu Marissa Jaret Winokur?
