She won season seven, and now she's coming back for good:

Brooke Burke has been named the new co-host on Dancing with the Stars. She'll replace Samantha Harris and be in charge of backstage interviews, while also appearing on the main stage with Tom Bergeron.

“She’ll be able to talk to the couples backstage with the perspective of having been there herself,” says Bergeron, who made the announcement today on Good Morning America.

Burke has previously hosted shows such as Wild On, Rock Star: INXS and Rock Star: Supernova.

She'll speak to season 10 contestants Kate Gosselin, Jake Pavelka and others when episodes start to air on March 22.
