The New York Post has reported that a longtime beauty queen is the newest host of the Dancing With the STAR “sporting event” on NBC.
The move comes less than a month after former Dancing With The Stars contestant Sarah Hyland announced she was stepping down from the show to pursue a singing career.
She is currently an executive producer of the NBC musical series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” which is also based on a book by J.K. Rowling.
Hyland was previously a contestant on the “Dancing with the Stars” reality show from 2003-2009.
Hylands first appeared on the show as an intern in 2003, becoming one of the first girls to join the cast of the show.
Hylander and former “Dance with the Star” castmate Jessica St. Clair joined the cast in 2013 and are now executive producers of the new show.
The show was created by David Chase and Robert Stempel and executive produced by Chase and Stempl.
It is a weekly dance competition hosted by “Dancers” cast member and the “Candy Crush Saga” star.
The contestants compete for their weekly $250 prize.
“Dancer” stars St. Claire and St. Thomas will be on the new “DANCE WITH THE STAR” team of contestants.
The team will consist of a variety of contestants including former “Catch a Falling Star” contestant Rachel Maddow, former “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” cast members Hannah Simone and Kristen Bell, “Mozart in the Jungle” castmember Dax Shepard, “Game of Thrones” cast and “Orange is the New Black” star Ciara Renee O’Hara.
The new season of “DANCING WITH THE STARDES” will be available for streaming on NBC and NBCU.com in the coming weeks.
