FOX REALITY CHANNEL SPICES UP VALENTINE'S DAY WITH THE PREMIERE OF HOT NEW EPISODES OF "BATTLE OF THE BODS"

Comedienne Olivia Lee Returns as Host of "Battle of the Bods" Premiering Saturday, February 14 at 10p/9c

Los Angeles, CA � Fox Reality Channel is bringing sexy back with all-new episodes of its successful original series, "Battle of the Bods," proving you don't have to be a man to think like one. Clothes come off and claws come out on "Battle of the Bods," which takes five outspoken ladies who must rank themselves in order of physical attractiveness in order to match the rankings of a panel of male judges sitting behind a one-way mirror. If the women are successful, they win cash prizes. Feisty British comedienne Olivia Lee (Punk'd, Comedy Lab: Olivia Lee's Naughty Bits) returns to host all-new episodes of the eye candy-filled original, "Battle of the Bods," premiering Saturday, February 14 at 10p/9c.

"While other networks offer romance, Fox Reality Channel is providing our fans with a reality series that is brutally honest about beauty and sex appeal," said Bob Boden, Senior Vice President, Programming and Development, Fox Reality Channel. "Whether you're spending Valentine's Day alone or with a sweetheart, �Battle of the Bods' serves as the perfect forum to discover what men and women find attractive about each other � viewers might be surprised to see who comes out on top, as our alluring players �get ranking'."

In "Battle of the Bods," the five women compete in three rounds to rank their best attributes, which include the categories face, butt, chest, legs and the full package. For every rank the women match with the male judges, they build their cash prize. The male judges don't get off that easy though � at the end of each episode the tables are turned and the ladies get their chance to rank the men's bodies for bonus cash.

"This season the players are hotter, the egos are bigger and tempers are closer to the surface," said Glenda Hersh, Executive Producer and President of True Entertainment. "The ladies turned up ready to fight for their rank, outthink the guys and take home cash."

Watch for special "Reality Star" episodes with men and women from some of the most popular reality shows including, "Rock of Love" (VH1) and "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila" (MTV), and a "grudge match," featuring some audience-favorite females from previous shows.

In addition to watching the show on Fox Reality Channel, viewers can "get ranking" on foxreality.com. Web extras include: "Bodsliders," a traditional slider game that has players mix body photo pieces of contestants (head, torso, legs) into new combinations to form their ideal mate; a media gallery including wallpapers, behind-the-scenes photos and sound bytes. Registered users can enter a weekly prize drawing by ranking the lineup of ladies from the forthcoming episode online. If they match the lineup of the show, they will be given a number of entries equal to the number they matched. Weekly drawings are held and winners will be posted on the site.

Along with the value-add website experience, "Battle of the Bods" will be available as one of the shows featured in the mobile version of the foxreality.com website and through tunes�, VOD, and Hulu.com.

True Entertainment produces the Fox Reality Original "Battle of the Bods" series with Co-Presidents/Co-Founders Steven Weinstock & Glenda Hersh and Executive Producer Dean Minerd.
