Erin Andrews, 'Dancing With The Stars' Partner Talk Strategy (VIDEO)

Erin Andrews recently joined 'Dancing with the Stars' for the show's upcoming season, where she will compete against Chad Ochocinco (who now has two shows) and Evan Lysacek, among other contestants. She is clearly taking the competition seriously.

In an interview, the ESPN reporter says signing up for the show was a "big decision." She expects the stakes to be high. "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."

While Andrews says she's trying, she is worried about her "turnout... and I have bow legs."

Andrews recently signed up for Twitter, where she posted pictures of a bruise and a blister from her dancing practices.
