Looks like Maria Menounos is more than ready to rock the skimpiest costumes available in the Dancing with the Stars closet!
Back in early February, the 33-year-old Extra co-host showed off her flawless form in a skimpy red, white and blue Giants bikini in New York City's Times Square -- all because she lost a Super Bowl XLVI bet to colleague AJ Calloway, 37, after wagering that the New England Patriots would win. (The New York Giants beat Tom Brady's team in a 21-17 victory).
On Tuesday, Menounos was among the twelve celebs announced to compete in the fourteenth season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Her competition is soap star Jack Wagner, TV vet Melissa Gilbert, NFL pro Donald Driver, The View's Sherri Shepherd, opera diva Katherine Jenkins, singer Gavin DeGraw, tennis champ Martina Navratilova, Disney star Roshon Fegan, Family Matters star Jaleel White, actor-model William Levy and singer Gladys Knight.
"I'm terrified yet excited I learn how to dance!" Menounos, who is partnering with Derek Hough, tweeted on Tuesday. She told fans, "Gonna count on all of your for support through this grueling process! #positiveenergy."
