The Body Poets from "Fake Off" is one of the teams competing in the truTV reality series. The group's ten members range in age from 18 to 36 years old.

The Body Poets are a street dance crew from San Diego, California. Led by the charismatic Omeed Simontob, the group started out as street dancers, putting a cap down for tips. It kept them out of trouble, and they bonded as brothers. The Body Poets see themselves as much more than just dancers. They're entertainers — or as Omeed likes to say, "We're professional pretenders." Omeed is a long-time Michael Jackson fan and calls him the "Original Faker." He hopes to pay homage to the King of Pop in a fake onstage.

The Body Poets have never worked with props before, so "Fake Off" could be an enormous challenge. But it's a challenge they're willing to face head on. The Body Poets are struggling financially, primarily because they live in different parts of the country and can only meet up for gigs. Winning "Fake Off" could lead to a permanent show and a secure home base.
