Take a minute, grab a partner, and play this game. Afterward, listen to this guy break down what happened. I'm surprised, but not surprised.
Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?
FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.
Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.
Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.
For example, every year the foundation hosts a number of "We Dare to Bare" events to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes doing boxing, hip hop, yoga, and other boot camps — all just wearing their sports bras. They also have a BIPOC fitness grant program to empower women, businesses, and organizations that are leading the way in making wellness and fitness more inclusive.
When you feel good in your body, you're going to feel much more confident in all aspects of your life, and that will empower you to take a big leap, whether that's leaving your job to start a passion project, learning to dance, or getting on a flying trapeze at the age of 41.
Here are some of the big leaps that members of Movemeant told us they took:
If you want to support others in this mission — or go after it yourself — join FOX in supporting the Movemeant Foundation by donating or applying for one of their grants.
And don't forget to tune in to the series premiere of "The Big Leap" on Monday, September 20 at 9/8c on FOX.

Mind you, sometimes they get lucky and a reporter changes it up a bit. Like this reporter from Cosmo, who decided to turn the whole idea on its head and ask Mark all the questions Scarlett usually gets.
When she asked him if he had any special poses for the red carpet, the absurdity of the entire thing shined through:
And when the reporter asked him if he had any special makeup tricks to help keep his complexion all shiny and classy, Scarlett asked him if he had to be painted green for any Hulk scenes.
He confessed to having to deal with something else entirely:
You know, like questions about her character, Black Widow, and why she likes playing her.
And questions about the stunts she gets to do, which gave her an opportunity to shout-out another hardworking woman in show business.
It's only when the script gets flipped and male actors have to answer them too that we see how absurd they truly are.
And that, in and of itself, is absurd if you ask me. Doesn't mean it's not fun to watch, though.
Well played, Cosmo. Well played, Scarlett and Mark.
If any entertainment journalists are reading this, if you were wondering how to make it better, I highly recommend not asking dumb questions. And maybe asking some smart ones? Bold idea, I know, but just try it. Please? For all of our sakes.
