After the SexBomb Girls were pulled off the show by their manager due to a conflict with the show's producer, Eat Bulaga! decided to create a reality competition to search for female dancers who will become part of its new in-house dance group called the EB Babes. The ten winners of the competition became the original members of the new dance group that officially debuted in the show in August 2006.

A second edition was held in February 2008 after one of the original members left the group due to pregnancy. The competition brought in three new members to the group to replace the vacant slot as well as to further expand the dance group.

At the show, there's this usual running gag where Vic Sotto (a.k.a Bossing Vic) often makes jokes and puns about her underarms, hence, aside from the "foundation jokes", this was one of the main reasons why she was considered as "Bossing's Fave", which is, not meant literally, but more as a comedic relief.
