If youve been lucky enough to spot PoleRidersa bicycle trailing a strippers pole, plus dancer, through the streets of New Yorkthen you might have an inkling of the artfulness and endurance required to be a Pole Superstar. Tonight, six of the countrys best pole dancers compete for a victory lap on the PoleRiders contraption (oh, yeah, and $10 grand) by climbing, flipping over, wrapping around, and basically making love to a metal stick in front of a panel of celebrity judges. The audience chooses the winner via text message during the show. If the tickets too pricey, know that you can witness totally free softcore in the privacy of your own home: The competition will be broadcast live over the Pole Superstar website.
