Erin Andrews

Parnter: Maksim Chmerkovskiy

ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is trading in her sneakers for dancing heels. "It's nice to dress up and be a girl for once," said Andrews, 31, in a recent interview with pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "If I can make (him) happy, then we're golden," she added about her perfectionist partner. Competing against one of the athletes she has interviewed for ESPN, Chad Ochocinco, is no big deal -- but the scrutiny from those she typically scrutinizes is another thing. "It's going to be a lot of pressure. I am pretty tough on college coaches and college athletes, give them a hard time about things. So if I do not do a good job on the show I'm going to be getting text messages left and right... It could be disastrous."
