TMZ has learned the identity of yet another of the contestants for the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars" ... the super hot Maria Menounos.

We revealed three cast members yesterday ... "View" host Sherri Sherpherd, "Little House of the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert, and "Melrose Place" hunk Jack Wagner.

Now we've learned the show has picked the younger and sexier Menounos to join the mix.

People who host "Extra" have a good track record on the show ... Mario Lopez finished second in season three of "DWTS."
