Dancing with the Stars contestant Erin Andrews could not be happier with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “He is the best, so I wanted to be paired with him,” Erin admitted to reporters last night at the Grand Opening of Drais Hollywood at the W Hollywood Hotel. So, what effect does Maksim have on the ESPN sportscaster?
“Everyone just tells me to come out of my shell and work it, but I think it’s funny when you are paired up with a really attractive guy, you turn into a 15- year-old and don’t know what to do,” Erin said.
Is their a romantic spark between the two or just nerves?
“I would say nervousness,” Erin told reporters, not denying a romantic connection. “I did elbow him in the face!”
Maksim definitely shares a mutual respect and level of admiration for his partner.
“She is great at everything,” he said at last night’s event. “I try to channel all of her energy, drive sex appeal, and pizazz that she has and package it the right way. The pressure is on me.”
