When Erin Andrews got the news she’d be on Dancing with the Stars, she knew she wanted to be paired up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy because of his strong work ethic — after all, he’s made some of his former partners cry! — but she also got an unexpected bonus.

“The dude smells ridiculously amazing!” Andrews, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Wednesday. “I mean, we could be working out outside for hours and I’ll smell like a guy and he smells like a garden of lilies. I’m like, are you serious? I’ll put on a load of deodorant [and] spray myself up.”

There was, however, something else Andrews hoped to find in her dance partner. “I flat out said to [the producers], I want sexual chemistry,” she says. “I want to be put with Maks. I don’t care if he makes me cry, I want somebody that’s hot.”
