Singer, dancer, and actress Jennifer Lopez is asking women to participate in a ten week weight loss challenge. The grand prize? A chance to hang out in New York City with J-Lo herself. The bad news? It will cost you more than weight. The good news? If you think your chances of winning are slimmer than Lopez’ waist, there are a total of five grand prizes up for grabs.
Lopez is launching the #BeTheGirl weight loss challenge this June as a means of promoting her new business venture, BodyLab, a lifestyle brand that includes recipes, exercise tips, expert advice, and supplements. And yes, if you want to participate in the #BeTheGirl program in the hopes of achieving that Jennifer Lopez hourglass frame, you must buy those darn supplements, the cheapest set being the Basic Burn Pack, priced at $49.
The five grand prize winners will be selected from the pool of weight loss challenge participants. That lucky quintet will get to spend three days and two nights in Lopez’ favorite hotel while being pampered with luxurious spa treatments and a meet and greet with J-Lo.
In a promotional video of the #BeTheGirl campaign, Jennifer Lopez is seen encouraging women to “crack the cocoon to find the butterfly” and “love yourself more than anything on the menu,” among other things. If the motivational quips don’t inspire you, perhaps a look at Lopez and her healthy body will.
Jennifer Lopez got her start as a Fly Girl dancer on the Wayans brothers-produced show, In Living Color. Her curvy figure and fitness has long been a topic of conversation, including a longstanding rumor that Lopez’ enviable derriere was insured for $1 billion. Jennifer has repeatedly denied that rumor.
In January, Lopez gave an interview to Good Morning America‘s Cameron Mathison explaining why she felt a strong pull to help her fellow women improve their bodies.
“The way we burn fat, our different stressors, different things about our metabolism that is totally different than men. We just want to look good. We want to feel healthy. We want to be hot.”
With #BeTheGirl, Lopez seems to be tapping into one of her most influential assets… her looks. Even at 45 and having become the mother of twins, Jennifer Lopez still has one of the most envied figures in entertainment.
