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."

I love the people who bitch and complain about the level of celebrity DWTS casts on their show. If you didn't care about them, then why are you wasting your time posting a comment on tmz? Who in the hell do you think the producers are going to cast? George freakin Clooney? Take it for what it is, enjoy it or just STFU.

@Friend: I completely agree with you! She seems to be full of herself. Lose a bet and you're stripping down to your bikini?! Please! Just another way of trying to make herself relevant. She's really annoying. I have her too.

She's hot. Very attractive with a terrific body, but the most annoying laugh though.

Sherry Shepard ? Seriously? The woman is so top heavy she'll fall over if you let her go. Not to mention she is the most annoying person ever and isn't even funny. Way too opinionated and what was the View thinking . I agree ....these D listers are not worth watching.

Not an impressive cast. Sherry Shepard has a strange body. Big breast but no ass and she's portioned strangely. Bot pretty, funny or anything. I'm not sure how she even got the gig on "The View"? Then again Elizabeth Hasselback is also on "The View". Another talentless woman.

No wonder Jack Wagner was fired from "Bold & the beautiful". If he is doing "DWTS" CBS probably didn't like that.

Glad I'm not watching DWTS this season it sure seems more lackluster than ever before. Thank God for The Voice on Mondays night that is what I'll be watching with real celebs as coaches and it's more fun.

She will likely be the first to not wear panties while dancing.
