A former host of MTV’s “Total Request Live” has been tapped as the new co-host of a prime-time ABC show, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

Vanessa Minnillo, who also has been a correspondent for the syndicated program "Entertainment Tonight," is the new co-host of ABC hit "Wipeout," according to the report.

The show features contestants trying to get through an obstacle course filled with props such as giant inflatable balls and mud puddles, with their progress accompanied by commentary from John Anderson and John Henson.

Minnillo will replace Jill Wagner, who is leaving the program, for the show’s fifth season, which will include winter and summer editions.
