Erin Andrews Campaigns for Dancing with the Stars

at . Comments

In a recent interview with The Sporting News, ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews says she's turned down a number of opportunities because they'd detract from her standing as a dedicated journalist.

But if a certain dancing competition came calling, the University of Florida graduate says she wouldn't be able to resist.

"I want to do [Dancing with the Stars], because I think I'd be good at it," Andrews said. "I love the show, and I've grown up around dancing... I think I'd be in the top, unless I fall. I'm a big faller. If you fall, that's a hard fall, which I'm sure would make the Internet very happy."

Heck, any photo of Andrews makes the Internet very happy.

Aside from a personal passion for dancing, Erin has another motivation for wanting to appear on the ABC series: the abysmal performance of fellow network personality Kenny Mayne on season two.

"I love Kenny Mayne very much, he's a friend of mine," Andrews said. "But I need to help ESPN's name on Dancing With the Stars. He did nothing for us on that show."
