The 25 Best New Pictures of Erin Andrews
It seems the public just can't get enough of ESPN's beautiful blonde Barbie with a brain, Erin Andrews.
As a member of the sports media, she's supposed to be the one conducting the interviews, but these days it seems that more often than not, she's the one being interviewed.
In just a few years, Andrews has transformed from just another sexy sideline reporter to a headline-grabbing celebrity who does the occasional sports reporting. With her contract set to expire with ESPN, many are wondering if Andrews' days with the network are numbered.
But enough with the negative thinking. It's not like she'll just drop off the face of the planet if she doesn't sign a new contract with ESPN. In the last year, Andrews has popped up at countless events all around the country. Many weren't even sports related, which means you probably missed her.
So just in case you have missed her, let's take a look a look at some recent pictures of Ms. Andrews doin' what she do.

Did you know: Despite her svelte frame, she's actually a bit of a fast food junkie. Andrews has confessed to indulging in McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A, and Arby's once a week and Chipotle three times a week.
24. NCAA Football Game
The Event: Andrews is pictured after Baylor's defeat of Oklahoma in late 2011.
Did you know: Andrews favorite moment of the 2011 college football season was interviewing Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III after their victory over Oklahoma. Considering RGIII's skyrocketing fame and the fact that she was doused with the Gatorade bath, it was probably a moment she'll never forget.
23. Rolling Stone Party

The Event: Andrews is pictured at the Rolling Stone-hosted Bacardi Bash, which celebrated 150 Years of Rocking The Party…whatever that means.
Did you know: Ms. Andrews is just like us regular folks—she has a celebrity crush! America's national treasure (Andrews) has a thing for Canada's national treasure (Ryan Reynolds, who she described as "not ugly"). No surprise there, who doesn't have a thing for Ryan Reynolds?
22. College Football Awards
The Event: Andrews is pictured conducting interviews for ESPN at the Home Depot College Football Awards in December, 2011.
Did you know: Growing up in the south, Andrews' heart has always been in college football, but eventually she'd like to graduate and have the opportunity to cover the NFL. With her contract at ESPN set to expire, perhaps some NFL duties will be part of a potential new deal?
21. Partying in Los Angeles
The Event: Andrews is pictured exiting Boulevard 3 following the Dancing with the Stars 200th episode party in early 2011.
Did you know: When Andrews appeared on ABC's Dancing with the Stars she had a number of high profile supporters. Packers stars Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews and coaches John Calipari and Pete Carroll were among those drumming up support for her.

Did you know: Andrews considers Mrs. Tom Brady (aka supermodel Gisele Bundchen) her style icon and says she "absolutely loves her." Andrews insists she'd take anything in Gisele's closet and would like it even more if she brought it over to her house for some girl time. Major girl crush.
19. BCS Championship Game

The Event: Andrews is pictured at the Allstate BCS National Championship Game, LSU vs. Alabama, in January, 2012.
Did you know: Andrews was a firm believer that the best possible BCS Tittle Game matchup was Alabama vs. LSU—"Yes, without question, and I'll argue anyone about it until I'm blue in the face. They're the best two teams in the country." (Wonder if she reconsidered that after the crapfest of a game those two gave us)
18. Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The Event: Andrews is pictured signing autographs before an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in September, 2011.
Did you know: She may look perfect, but Andrews has flaws just like anyone else. Her favorite reality shows are Jersey Shore and Keeping up with the Kardashians. I can give her a pass on the first (I love me some DJ Pauly D), but not on the soulless Kardashian freakshow.
17. Kentucky Derby
The Event: Andrews is pictured at the Kentucky Derby Winner's Party at the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs in May, 2011.
Did you know: If Andrews invites you out on a karaoke date, she probably won't sing, but she will dramatically whip her hair around. If she does get drunk enough to belt out a tune, it will be Taylor Swift's song "Mine."
16. Maksim Chmerkovskiy's Birthday Party
The Event: Andrews is pictured at Maksim Chmerkovskiy's Ballroom Birthday Bash at New York CIty's Hammerstein Ballroom in January, 2012.
Did you know: Andrews isn't stricken with Bieber fever, but she was straight up obsessed with New Kids on the Block when she was growing up—so she gets it. Her favorite New Kid was (is?) Jon Knight and she even had a mini-meltdown when he tweeted her recently.
15. DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl

The Event: Andrews is pictured at DIRECTV's Sixth Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl Game, which took place during Super Bowl week in Indianapolis in February, 2011.
Did you know: Gator great Tim Tebow is Andrews' favorite athlete of all-time and this is why: "because of everything he stood for and how hard he played. I unfortunately often have to report negative news about players. It was nice to have such a wonderful ambassador for college football."
14. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
The Event: Andrews is pictured posing on the runway at the Alice + Olivia show during Fall 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York City.
Did you know: Recently, Andrews described her worst interview experience ever: "I had a hockey player come out right after he was stitched up. And literally, like, his face was falling off. It was still bleeding, you could see it pulsating. And I turned around and looked at it and said 'Oh my God' right on camera and blanked out cause I just couldn't get over that his face was all stitched up and looked terrible." (Ew)
13. Cancer Initiative Event
The Event: Andrews is pictured at the On The Line prostate cancer initiative campaign event at The Millennium Broadway Hotel in February, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews doesn't have any answers for the problems plaguing the BCS, but she does know something isn't working. It's a refreshing treat when someone admits he or she doesn't have all the answers and yields to experts on the subject—it's very rare in sports.
12. Disney Cruise Gala
The Event: Andrews is pictured with Mickey Mouse aboard the Disney Fantasy during a star-studded christening gala held in New York City in March, 2012.
Did you know: Andrews absolutely cannot go to bed unless she's told her family that she loves them (Hopefully just via text or something—calling everyone up every night before bed could get a little intrusive).
11. Michigan Basketball Game
The Event: Andrews is pictured with Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson at a Michigan basketball game in February, 2012.
Did you know: Andrews has a definitive opinion on which school has the absolute craziest fans in the NCAA. It should come as no surprise that she pointed the finger at the mountain crazies of WVU. Says Andrews of those matriculating in Morgantown, "Oh my gosh, they're nuts on a Thursday night. Are you kidding?" (I concur)
10. Gracie Awards Gala
The Event: Andrews is pictured arriving at the 36th Annual Gracie Awards Gala in Beverly Hills in May, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews is a daddy's girl! If she could have dinner with anyone (living or dead), she'd choose Larry Bird and bring her dad along because "that would mean so much to him." Awww.
9. 2011 ESPY Awards
The Event: Andrews is pictured posing for photographers on the red carpet at the 2011 ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles in July, 2011.
Did you know: If things don't work out with her new ESPN contract, she has a few backup plans that will keep her in the spotlight. Andrews has been being courted by a Nashville agent with CAA who is trying to convince her to record a demo for a country music album. (Sorry, but that has train wreck written all over it)
8. Academy Awards
The Event: Andrews is pictured arriving at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood's famed Kodak Theatre in February, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews has had the opportunity to meet some of the biggest superstar athletes in the world, but that's just another day on the job for her. She still gets starstruck, but it takes a pretty big name—like Oprah big. Or Tom Hanks big.
7. Snuggling Puppies
The Event: Andrews is pictured snuggling Golden Retriever puppies in December, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews' father gave her an interesting nickname when she was younger. She says he called her "the human pretzel," because she was able to bend her body in crazy ways and her legs are very long.
6. Kentucky Derby
The Event: Andrews is pictured at the Fillies & Stallions Derby party hosted by Maxim magazine. It was part of the events surrounding the Kentucky Derby in May, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews says that her friends all insist she doesn't have a filter, which could be considered her best and worst personality trait. She also thinks she can be too hard on herself, which can also be good or bad.
5. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
The Event: Andrews is pictured backstage at the Badgley Mischka show during Fall 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York City.
Did you know: Andrews' hidden talent is something that she calls "hairography," which apparently is something country-cutie Taylor Swift excels at, too. I don't know (or want to know) what this means, but Google suggests it's derived from Glee!
4. Step Up 3D Premiere
The Event: Andrews is pictured with her sister at the world premiere of Touchstone Pictures' Step Up 3D held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
Did you know: Andrews has a similarly gorgeous, but substantially edgier sister named Kendra. Sister Kendra is a professional Hip Hop dancer who has appeared in music videos and a few films including Footloose and Step Up 3D.
3. GQ, Lacoste and Patron Tequila Super Bowl Party

The Event: Andrews is pictured with pal Brooklyn Decker at a Super Bowl party in February, 2011—she was rumored to have shown up late, seemingly-intoxicated and was spotted chatting up former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman.
Did you know: Andrews isn't above a little low-brow humor—her favorite cartoon characters growing up were MTV's own Beavis and Butt-Head. Seriously wouldn't have guessed that one.
2. Motorola Xoom Party
The Event: Andrews is pictured signing autographs for fans at the Motorola Xoom party hosted by Maxim magazine at Dallas' Centennial Hall in February, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews is a University of Florida alum and friendly with the most famous Gator in the world—Mr. Timmy (Terrific) Tebow. Andrews says Timmy has a lot of talents, but busting a move on the dance floor is not one of them. (Throwing a football is also not one of them)
1. CMA Awards
The Event: Andrews is pictured posing on the red carpet at the 45th annual CMA Awards at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in November, 2011.
Did you know: Andrews' musical taste really runs the gamut. Her top-five favorite artists of all-time are: Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Britney Spears. Just in case you were thinking about making her a mix-tape.
