When it comes to sportscasters, Erin Andrews is a name that come sup frequently. The Los Angeles native quickly rose to the top with coverage for ESPN National Hockey Night, the Little League World Series, and the Scripps National Spelling Bee. In 2010, she became a household name when she competed in ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
With a net worth of $58 million, she’s one of the biggest in the game right now. But there’s a lot you probably don’t know about this smart and sexy sports celeb, so we’ve combed interviews and social media profiles for 10 things that surprised us most about her.
Let’s get started with our first fact — did you know her talent runs in the family?
10. Talented Sister
Erin isn’t the only talented person in the family; her younger sister Kendra has been making moves in Hollywood as a dancer and an actress. Since her debut role in the 2001 film Farewell Colette, Kendra has been featured in Step Up 3D, Footloose, House, Game On, and Masters of Sex.
9. Erin Can Sing And Act, Too
From 1997 to 2000, Erin was a part of the Florida Gators dance team called the Dazzlers, who performed at basketball and volleyball games. In 2012, she made her acting debut as Randall Morgan’s receptionist in the film That’s My Boy, which stars Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg.
8. Smitten By 50 Cent
A lot of sports fans are smitten by Erin, and that includes platinum-selling rapper 50 Cent. At the 2013 Daytona 500, the rapper tried to go in to kiss Andrews on the lips, but the reporter turned her head. This incident, which aired live on TV, led to some interesting water cooler chat the next day.
Though Andrews is undeniably a looker, the next fact shows she’s human just like the rest of us.
7. Fast Food Diet
While Erin looks fantastic on television, she does admit to having a craving for fast food. Three time a week, she’ll make her way to Chipotle and chow down on their delectable meals. Once a week, she’ll head to McDonald’s, Arby’s, and Chick-fil-A during her hectic work schedule.
6. Like Father, Like Daughter
Erin’s father Steve has been Tampa Bay’s most beloved reporter over at WFLA, which inspired Erin to become a reporter herself. Since being hired by the station in 1985, he won seven Emmys for his work. Before the season 10 finale of Dancing with the Stars, he interviewed his daughter for the station.
