New Season, New Host! DWTS Taps Brooke Burke

| Filed under: TV News


This'll be interesting!

It's been confirmed that Dancing With The Stars season 7 winner Brooke Burke will be co-hosting the upcoming season with Tom Bergeron!

Burke, who will be replacing Samantha Harris, tweeted about the audition a couple of weeks ago, writing, "I am screen testing next week for the job, fingers crossed! It would be amazing 2 be back!"

Do U agree with the choice?

    Anyone would be better as a host than samantha!!! and I mean ANYONE …even Perez lol

  4. 4

    She's a good host. Not that I care about that stupid show.

  5. 5

    I think since she knows the other side of the coin (being a contestant), could make for some interesting moments and comments.

    EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!

    well its not fair to compare to samantha as a pet rock would be better…she has no talent, talks like a cement head..stands there looking creepy as all hell flashing her man guns..i get it girl..you work out..but do you have to look so masculine and creepy?
    brooke is beautiful, is charming, has won dancing with the stars so she has specific inside info…she will be awesome. good riddance samantha go do some arm curls and boff a woman.

    fucking yum!

    I would prefer my lovely Mel B, but ANYTHING, and I mean ANYTHING is better than that cow Samantha Harris! Ugh, she was just unsettling

    It's not 'rock star', so I suppose she'll use a slightly more elegant approach. Oh, and Samantha Harris did a fabulous job. Luck to her.

  11. 11

    She might have rubbed all that special butter on her belly during and after pregnancy but her face is getting chinkier looking with age.

  12. 12

    I like her….good choice! At least she won't be screaming at you like Samantha Harris. She was so annoying!

  13. 13

    Very Nice!!! I was very worried that they were going to have Melissa Raycroft.. thank god they thought better of it! I loved Brooke on Rock Star! looking forward to the new season!

  14. 14

    YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. 15

    I dont think shes the right choice just because she won doesnt mean she knows how to host!! I dont watch this show anyway!

  16. 16

    I think they should have left Samantha's spot open to a different guest host every week. Would have made it more interesting…

  17. 17

    she was kinda blah on Rock Star…no peppiness or personality.

  18. 18

    She has the most beautiful body in Hollywood even with four kids.

  19. 19

    great choice!! tootles, samantha. THANK GOD!

  20. 20

    Anyone is better than Samantha Harris but I would have preferred Melissa Rycroft. She at least has a good sense of humour - Brooke Burke is just BORING.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO HER! Brooke is the most underrated host in town. She is going to be great.

  23. 23

    I would have preferred Melissa Rycroft. I am surprised Perez didn't say that Lady Gaga should have been host….he manages to put her name in every post. I love Gaga, but I am sick of you talking about her Perez…..enough is enough….you are going to overexpose her and make her star tarnish…do you want that??

  24. 24

    I think that she'll be great and it does'nt hurt that she's stunning either!

  25. 25

    What happened to samantha?

  26. 26

    Yes,Yes,YES!!! Fucking love Brooke, She is slamming hot and a great host. She was awesome on Wild On when it was actually watchable, and she was great hosting Rockstar…I might actually have to watch this crap show now

  27. 27

    Great choice!

  28. 28

    Shes a nobody, why not Ben Roethlisberger?

  29. 29

    Absolutely agree!

  30. 30

    UGH I couldn't stand Brooke Burke when she was a contestant..worst choice ever…I liked the idea of rotating hosts like a bunch of past contestants

  31. 31

    i dont think anyone will notice the difference

  32. 32

    A "real dancer" host would be a nice touch, like Shirley Ballas or Melanie Lapatin.
    For a "faux dancer" host, Vanessa Williams would work nicely.

  33. 33

    YES-I miss her on TV! She's proven to be a great hostess. Not only does she always look FAB, but her personality always shows through!

  34. 34

    NO!! i hoped it would be melissa : (

    Re: luvstotango – The dancing background you refer to would be the judges. Brook is the talking hood ornament to rope viewers in, not inferring that she isn't also intelligent. She did a nice job with Rock Star, but only time will tell. They auditioned them, and felt she came out on top, so she earned it.

  36. 36

    Vanessa Minillo must be SO pissed! Why can't the poor girl get a break. Oh yes, that's right, lack of talent and charm. Bet it sucks to be Nick lachey 2night, and not in the fun way….

  37. 37

    Re: @v@ – Point taken. I don't watch the show, too much personal crapola to wade through, and I can catch up on just the dancing routines on youtube.
    Plus, Mr. luvs is home right then and can't stand it…he's not much of a dancer. (long big sigh)
    (@v@, when I'm here on my soabox, profoundly pontificating, I don't mean nothing by it, jus' talkin out my a$$.)

    Re: luvstotango – Yeah, I knew that. Takes one to know one. ;)

    Saw Miss Burke and her kids at a Claires boutique in Lake Arrowhead a couple months ago. She had bandages under both her eyes and a seemingly disregard for her many children running around the store. She was not a very nice person to my 7 year old twins who did nothing but attempt to befriend her children. I hope she falls on her altered face come dancing the stars time.
