Brooke won the competition herself a few season’s back, so she has knowledge on being on both sides of the microphone! From E! Online:

 The season-seven winner and former Wild On! hostess will be taking over the microphone duties to lead the backstage interviews following the recent departure of Samantha Harris. Unfortunately, she wasn’t on hand for the big announcement today on Good Morning America. As her Twitter feed teased, she’s still on vacation with her family in Africa.

“She cleans up nice,” Bergeron said. “She’ll be able to talk to the couples backstage with the perspective of having been through it herself.”

I think she will be a wonderful host. Do you like Brooke as co-host of DWTS?
