In case you missed last night’s episode of Oxygen’s Dance Your Ass Off, here is your recap.
While the families of Ruben, Alicia, Shayla and Pinky surprised them in a motivating family reunion, the dancers continued to lose weight as they strutted their leaner selves to ballroom dances to the tunes of 80’s retro hits like “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and “Isn’t She Lovely.”
Alicia, the reigning biggest loser, lost almost 6 pounds this past week. Shayla lost 4.5 pounds. Pinky lost 3.7 pounds and Ruben shed a very respectable 5.4 pounds.
Alicia secured her spot in the semifinals with her continued impressive weight loss while Ruben’s overall score of weight loss and dance performance pushed him into first place.
And in an interesting twist of fate, no dancers were eliminated from the competition this past week. Instead, the dancers will spend the entire week going through a complete body makeover so we must wait until next week to see what their new looks reveal and whose weight loss success and dance moves will shimmy them one step closer to that $100,000 prize.
Here’s a DYAO fitness tip from Episode 8.
