Erin Andrews is set to be the new co-host to Tom Bergeron on Dancing With The Stars this season. Read on some facts on Andrews that you may not know and all about her new role on the show.


1. Andrews Is Replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet

Just yesterday, the Executive Producer of DWTS, Conrad Green, told Us Weekly that co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet had been fired. His words were these:

We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season. She’s been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We’d like to thank Brooke for her years of great service.

2. Previously Andrews Was a Contestant On The Show

Erin Andrews was actually a contestant on DWTS in its 10th season and she was paired with dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Brooke Burke-Charvet started the same way, as a contestant before becoming host.


3. Andrews Isn’t The Only Big Change To The Show This Season

The news on Charvet being fired and Andrews stepping up to the plate is definitely a big deal, but the news breaks just after the show also fired longtime music director Harold Wheeler and all 28 members of the show’s live band. After hearing this news, many fans have voiced outraged via Twitter. Have a look at some of the disapproving tweets.


4. Last Year 50 Cent Tried To Kiss Andrews at The Daytona 500

Rapper 50 Cent awkwardly tried to give Erin Andrews a smooch when she was working as a FOX broadcast. Check out the footage of 50 Cent’s “miss” in the above video.

In addition to being a Fox Broadcast journalist, Andrews has also been a co-host of College Game Day on ESPN and a contributor for Good Morning America. Erin Andrews’ father Steven Andrews is actually a six-time Emmy award-winning TV journalist, so it looks like Erin has followed in her dad’s footsteps quite well.


5. Andrews Had a Nude Video Online That Went Viral

Erin Andrews unfortunately was victim to a stalker who filmed her without her knowledge at a hotel. Wikipedia documents the incident as this:

In 2008, Michael David Barrett, 46, filmed Andrews in her hotel room through peepholes at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Radisson Airport Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. On July 16, 2009, one of these videos, in which Andrews appeared totally nude, was posted online and quickly went viral … On March 15, 2010, Barrett was sentenced to 30 months in prison, three years of probation, $5,000 in fines, and $7,366 in restitution.[23] He served his sentence at the Seattle Community Corrections and was released on July 3, 2012.

Apparently, since the incident Andrews has filed lawsuits against Barrett, the hotel, and several others.
