36-year-old Winokur hosts the new series on Oxygen which brings dancing and dieting together. Full-figured contestants are paired with professional dance partners who will train them for weekly stage performances ranging from hip hop, to ballroom and even pole dancing.
Then they'll perform in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges who score the routines. After that, contestants weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which determines who is sent home each week. The last dancer remaining wins the grand prize of $100,000.
Winokur is best known for creating the role of Tracy Turnblad in the hit Broadway musical "Hairspray." She has also danced her way into the finals on "Dancing With the Stars."
