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, Krista Ayne, and Candace Nopants. 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.
