Pants-Off Dance-Off (PODO) is a dance contest which premiered on April 18, 2006 on Fuse. It features stripteasers as they dance while disrobing.

Format[edit]

In each episode, five contestants striptease to a music video, while interviews, soundbites and photos reveal stories about each so-called "pancer". For the first two seasons, the audience selected each episode’s winner by texting their vote. The third season used a format where judges selected the weekly winner. Each episode's winner received $200 and the opportunity to compete in a championship at the end of the season.

In October 2009 the show was launched in the U.K on MTV's new channel Viva. The show has a completely new look and currently broadcasts in double bill episodes. There is no cash prize on the UK version and there is no overall winner.

A Much Music version aired in Canada which involved the dancers stripping, often with the use of "mystery object", while an unseen narrator makes jokes.

Hosts[edit]

The first season was hosted by Tila Tequila and Krista Ayne. Former child star Jodie Sweetin joined the show as host for Season 2. Willa Ford hosted Season 3.

Production[edit]

The show's creator is Tad Low.
