Vanessa Minnillo has been flexing her acting muscles lately with guest spots on 30 Rock and Hawaii Five-0, but is getting back to her TRL roots this winter when she takes another hosting gig at ABC.
The actress and television personality has just signed on to co-host ABC's Wipeout, which pits 24 contestants against the world's largest extreme obstacle course.
She will be replacing Jill Wagner as the on-location co-host who interviews the contestants before and after they make themselves look like idiots on national television.
Executive producer of the hit reality game show, Matt Kunitz, is thrilled to have Vanessa, saying:
"We will miss Jill, but are thrilled to welcome Vanessa to the team and excited to bring her enthusiasm to the show. She is a great host with a fun and natural energy that our viewers will love."
We think she'll do great and are jealous a little jealous she gets to watch people get into HIGHlarious accidents for a living.
Do U think Vanessa Minnillo is a good replacement for Jill Wagner on Wipeout?
