Fox Reality Channel, the only all-reality, all-the-time cable and satellite network, is premiering its new sexy late-night original series, Battle of the Bods. This reality competition takes five sexy ladies and has them rank themselves in order of attractiveness to match the rankings of a panel of male judges sitting behind a one-way mirror. If they are successful, they win cash prizes. Hosted by the lively British comedienne Olivia Lee (Punk'd, Balls of Steel, The Law of the Playground), the 16 episodes will premiere late night on Saturday, January 19, 2008 at 1aET/10pPT and continue to air weekly with two back to back 30 minute episodes.
"This show takes a close look at how women see themselves and how they think men see them. There is a voyeuristic quality to the program that makes it perfectly suited for the lineup of reality programming offered by our network," remarked Bob Boden, SVP of Programming at Fox Reality Channel.
In Battle of the Bods, five women will compete in three rounds to rank their best attributes, which include faces, butts, chest, legs and a full rank, in comparison to the other women. For every rank the women match with the male judges, they build their cash prize. The male judges don't get off that easy - at the end of each episode the tables are turned and the ladies get their chance to rank the men for another cash prize.
"You can't help play along with Battle of the Bods. It draws you in and before you know it, you're doing the ranking yourself," said Glenda Hersh, Co-President/Co-Founder at True Entertainment, an Endemol company.
