FOX REALITY CHANNEL DARES TO BARE ALL WITH THE NEW ORIGINAL COMPETITIVE REALITY SERIES "BATTLE OF THE BODS" PREMIERING JANUARY 2008

Fox Reality Channel Original "Gets Ranking" and Exposes what Men and Women think of each others' "Assets"

Los Angeles, Calif. (December 13, 2007) � 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 (P'unkd, Balls of Steel, The Law of the Playground, Unanimous, Homo Erectus), 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.

In addition to watching the show on Fox Reality Channel, viewers will be able to "get ranking" with a new micro-site on foxreality.com. Digital components include "Bodsliders," a traditional slider game where players mix body photo pieces of contestants (head, torso, legs) into new combinations to form their ideal mate; " Rank!," a game that lets players rank actual show contestants against uploaded Fox Reality Channel Presents the New Original "Battle of the Bods" personal pictures; "Battle of the Bods Extra," a play-at-home, online exclusive webisode where players can rank an episode's female contestants; and the "media gallery with exclusive online screenings of candidates' audition tapes, wallpapers, sound bites, and photo galleries taken from behind the scenes.

Along with the value-add website experience, "Battle of the Bods" will be available through iTunes, VOD (Time Warner and DirectTV), and will be one of three shows featured in the mobile version of the foxreality.com website.

Season one will include a special "Reality Star" episode with men and women from some of TV's most popular reality shows like "Beauty and the Geek" (CW) and "The Bachelor" (ABC).

True Entertainment, an Endemol company, is producing the Fox Reality Channel Original series "Battle of the Bods" with Co-Presidents/Co-Founders Steven Weinstock & Glenda Hersh and Executive Producer Dean Minerd.
