Even the title of this competition series is shedding something, in this case letters as it may be offensive in some circles. The 12 contestants featured, though, hope to lose excess pounds by dancing their derrieres off with a professional dance partner. Together, they will train for their weekly performances that take place in front of a live studio audience and a panel of judges: choreographer Danny Teeson, dancer and choreographer Mayte Garcia and dancer-actress Lisa Ann Walter. The judges' score combined with the contestant's weight loss for the week determines who is eliminated, with the overall winner receiving $100,000. In addition, Dr. Robert Huizenga ("Biggest Loser") heads a team of weight loss specialists on hand to help the contestants reach their goals.
