Move over, Samantha Harris. Brooke Burke was revealed to be the new co-host alongside Tom Bergeron on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Bergeron released the news this morning, just two weeks before the new season of fancy footwork gets started.
Not familiar with Burke? AP reports:
Burke won during the season that ended in November 2008. She has hosted TV shows including CBS’ “Rock Star” and E!’s “Wild On.” The mother of four children has also built her own business on parenting issues, with an online baby products store and job as the “mommy correspondent” on the syndicated show “The Doctors.” She has more than 1.7 million followers on Twitter.
Sorry to see Samantha go? Happy to get Brooke as her replacement? Both?
Last night the teams raced from Argentina to Hamburg, Germany where they were taken on a rollercoaster ride around the city.
When they first arrive in Germany, they get stuck at an intersection and for the first time in Amazing Race history teams must pair up with another group and a member from each team must race to bungee jump upside down from 150 feet. After they jump they can split back up.
Teams then must choose between soccer and sauerkraut. If they choose soccer, they race to a field and must kick 5 balls through 5 different targets. In sauerkraut they must eat a plate of kraut before a band quits playing the sauerkraut polka. The majority choose soccer.
The detectives choose kraut and down their plate in a few seconds and are in the lead. Jeff and Jordan also choose kraut but their cabby gets them lost trying to find the restaurant. When they arrive, neither can eat it and they leave to try soccer. They are in last place.
Teams must then make their way to Haifish where they drink a boot of beer and trade the finished boot in for a clue. Most noteable in this are the cowboys whom have never drank beer and it takes them quite a while. Brent and Caite have some problems when she won’t drink and he tries to down it too quickly and throws up outside the bar. Jeff has no problem with the beer and drinks it in what appears a matter of seconds.
The detectives arrive first at The Beatle’s monument and make their way through the red light district of Hamburg, Germany to find the bar where The Beatle’s first played to come in first. They each win a discover gift card worth $5000.
Jeff and Jordan arrive last but to their happiness this was a non elimination round and they are still in the race.
