Dance Your Ass Off will have a new host this season. They gave Marisa Jaret Winokur the axe, and are replacing her with Spice Girl, Mel B.
Executive Producer of the show, Dan Cutforth announced at TCA: “Oxygen considered it a huge success. They looked at some things they wanted to change. Marissa was a fabulous host. She was great hosting the show and got great press, but they found in talking to the audience that there was a portion of the audience who loved her and a portion who didn’t connect with her. The core Oxygen audience grew up as Spice Girls fans, so they connect with Mel B.”
Wow, what a blow to Marisa! I think Mel will be a great new addition to the show, since they’re stepping it up a notch by hiring the Magical Elves. I’m excited to see Dance Your Ass Off 2.0. Just sucks for Marisa.
