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 UK 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.
The show's creator is Tad Low.
