Erin Andrews’ Bruising Run On DWTS Is Finally Over

It was a long and hard road for ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews, but in the end it is hard no to consider her third place finish on Dancing With The Stars a success.  Less than a year after being the victim of a creepy hotel peep show, Erin showed that she was ready to jump back into the media spotlight and endure all the bumps and bruises that come with being a contestant on the popular ABC reality television contest.

Things may have started out a little rough for Erin, but as each week went by, her moves became smoother, her outfits sexier, and her relationship with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy grew stronger.  It is sad to see her long run end, but before she bid adieu, Erin had this to say:

“This experience has meant everything to me.  I knew that [Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek] were going to go head-to-head in this, but I came here under really crummy circumstances, and I just wanted to get my life back together and my smile back and I just wanted to be myself again. And you guys have been amazing, [the judges] have and my family up there and [Maksim] has just put my life back together.” [Zap 2 it]

So now it is time to move on for Erin.  Exactly what the future holds for her and whether it will include Maksim remains to be seen, but with football season only three months away, I, and many others, can’t wait to see her back on the sidelines.

Here is a look at her final performance on the show.
