Erin Andrews is no stranger to sideline reporting — and when combined with her experience as a former Dancing With the Stars finalist, she certainly knew a bit about what to expect from her new gig as a host on the show. But even she couldn’t be prepared for the kinds of challenges she faces every week.
For example: “Wearing high heels and strapless bras! I’m used to wearing flats and boots, not gowns,” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “I worry about the mic packs strapped to my strapless bra pulling it down, and my forty pieces of hair extensions. [My hair got caught in someone's sleeve] and I grabbed my head to see if my weave was still on. Those kinds of things are different.”
