Let's get Miss Piggy to do it. Then, if she starts with the "Back when moi was dancing," it will be SUPPOSED to be funny and worthy of rolling eyes.
The funny thing is, Brooke actually did a pretty good job as the host of the show, Rockstar. Don't know why DWTS is proving to be so difficult for her to do. Maybe it's because when she was on Rockstar she didn't have to ask questions of the competitors. She simply announced who would be out to sing next and what they would be singing. On DWTS, she's more up close and personal with the competitors and this is where her complete lack of personality, tactlessness and lack of skill is exposed. She is awful. I cannot believe some of the questions she asks. Like last night when she was speaking with one of the couples immediately following their dance (might have been David and Kim--not sure), and she had the gall to ask them what made them take their dance up a notch this week.
Um...hello Brooke, isn't the idea to come out and one-up themselves each and every week so that they can score higher than the last time, and (hopefully) win the mirror ball trophy? Geez...wow.
Poor girl can't see the forrest for the trees.
"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling"
My favorite line of hers last night was asking Chynna and Tony what happened out there and how they felt. I think she even slipped in there that she blanked out on a dance once, too I never watched Rockstar, but it seems everyone who did had glowing reviews about Brooke. I can't even say when she announces the next act during the results show she sounds normal. It all sounds over rehearsed and too robotic. She doesn't add anything to the interviews. It's awkward to hear her interact with Tom. She doesn't seem to ever know when something's going on that's a slip up. I wonder if she was co-hosting when Marie Osmond fainted, if she would have asked her backstage what happened and how she felt. Samantha was robotic, too, but she was far more natural than Brooke is. And wasn't completely oblivious to everything going on around her or when the couples were trying to make a funny. If they want someone pretty and a former contestant, how about Stacey Keibler? She did a decent job in the 2 seconds as a special correspondent on Dance Center a few seasons ago. That is, when George dumps her after she keeps nagging him about wanting to have his babies.

Reading this article from last night, I got a kick out of this analysis:
First, Brooke's been there? Really? I must have missed her season, or not been paying attention the hundred or so times she brings it up each season."Not much to say, is there?" Chaz said glumly after scoring a 19. "I understand, I've been there," replied DWTS cohost and season-seven champ Brooke Burke Charvet (who, for the record, has not been there because she never scored lower than a 21).
The casting director is a fool.
Her formula: previous winner + two lips = ratings bonanza
Can you imagine how badly Nancy and Melissa must have bombed in testing for Burke to beat them?!
This is one of the easiest shows to use guest co-hosts. See who has the talent, who the viewers like.
No, that's too complicated...

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - H.L. Mencken .
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
I think she's actually improved this season. Gosh, I can't believe I said that. LOL
She seems better at ad libbing and actually appears to understand some of the inane comments she makes.
I do still think she asks some of the dumbest questions imaginable, though.
On Rockstar, she never had to talk to the contestants. That's probably why she was fine on that, though I would not give her a glowing review.
