“Today is one of the most exciting days ever!!!” Burke said in a post on her web site. “With the exception of my family and children, today tops the list of all my professional endeavors!!! …I’m crossing off one more thing from my Bucket List!”

Burke said she can relate to the competitors on the show because she’s been there herself. “I know what it’s like to step out there on the dance floor on a whim and a prayer, trying to pull off the impossible,” Brooke said. “I’ll see you there March 22nd. This time a LOT less stressed!”

Brooke Burke and partner Derek Hough won the season 7 Dancing with the Stars competition back in 2008. Burke has also had quite a bit of experience playing a reality TV show host, including gigs with E!’s Wild On!, Rock Star: INXS and TV Land’s She’s Got the Look.

We wish Burke well with her new job and look forward to seeing how the new season of Dancing with the Stars plays out. It never hurts to have a hot co-host to distract from the sometimes embarrassingly bad dance moves of the contestants!
