“Dancing With the Stars” will announce its lineup Monday (March 1), but we’re also wondering what’s up with the co-host position.
Since Samantha Harris decided to turn in her microphone, we’ve learned that former “Dancing” contestants Melissa Rycroft, Brooke Burke and Mel B. have been approached.
Rycroft, perhaps the most famous rejected bachelorette in “The Bachelor” franchise history, is alright, but we don’t think she can handle the banter needed for the back room. Brooke Burke has some experience, but is kind of blah, if you ask us. We love the fabulous Mel B., but isn’t she already hosting “Dance Your Ass Off” over at Oxygen?
As long as we’re looking at past contestants, why not consider the lovely Laila Ali, Stacy Keibler or Jane Seymour? If you want wacky or funny, how about Lil’ Kim, Cloris Leachman or Paulina Porizkova.
There’s no requirement that the co-host has to be a woman either. Drew Lachey, our front-runner among the men, did an excellent job filling in for Harris during her maternity leave and then emceeing the spinoff “Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann.”
