Brooke Burke Named New DWTS Co-Host

Brooke Burke
was named the new co-host of Dancing with the Stars this morning! The hot mom of two beat out contenders Melanie Brown and Melissa Rycroft for the competition, which gets back underway on March 22nd.

Burke is no stranger to the ballroom floor—she partnered with Derek Hough on the seventh season of the show, and they won! Brooke’s co-host Tom Bergeron announced the news this morning, saying, “She’ll be able to talk to the couples backstage with the perspective of having been there herself.”

Sounds like Brooke is squeezing in a little family time before the season begins—she’s currently on vacation in Africa with her family. Think she can take over for Samantha Harris? We haven’t seen her host anything big since Wild On, so we’re anxious to see how she does!
