TV Host Challenges Video Gamers To Dance-Off

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dance Dance Revolution masters may have finally met their match in TV hostess Hannah Simone.

Simone – a former VJ for MuchMusic – is now co- hosting WCG Ultimate Gamer on Sci-Fi, a reality TV competition to find America’s best video gamer, premiering tonight (Mar. 10).

While Simone admits she doesn’t stand a chance against the hardcore professionals in racing and fighting video games, she may have a shot during a round of Dance Dance Revolution.

She laughs, “I’m pretty good at dance-offs. I challenge any pro gamer to one!”

After working on the series, Simone has learned the intricacies and skills involved in gaming and has serious respect for the pros.

She says, “They’re not just nerds. They are very strategic and technical.”

Simone says her favorite part of the show was watching the gamers perform live-action challenges based on video games, like playing a real guitar in front of a rowdy crowd, Rock Band style.
