They were one of the most classic pairings ever on Dancing with the Stars, with electric chemistry, rumors of off-screen romance and moves that carried them to a third-place finish.
Now, five years later, Erin Andrews recalls meeting Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the first time – and just being terrified.
"When I first met Maks, I broke out in hives because I was like, 'Wow, you really are delicious, and I cannot walk in heels,' " Andrews said Thursday at "An Evening with Dancing with the Stars" – an event at the Paley Center in Los Angeles featuring a panel discussion about the show.

Dancing with the Stars isn't bestowing its Mirrorball Trophy until next week, but for ousted partners Kym Johnson and Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, the chemistry they found on the dance floor is prize enough.

It appears as if Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson have the tools to console each other through their elimination from Dancing with the Stars.
The couple have been the subject of rumors ever since their touchy-feely cha-cha on the premiere, but it seems as if they're taking their showmance to a romance.
Herjavec, 51, and Johnson, 38, were snapped kissing in Palm Springs, California, over the weekend following their elimination, and the dancing duo also shared a kiss on the May 4 episode, but Herjavec insisted at the time, "We're professional dancers – we were just in the moment!"

In a preview of this week's Lip Sync Battle against sister Julianne, Derek Hough does his best Macklemore impression as he lip syncs along to "Can't Hold Us."
Although Hough, 29, does an impressive job of rapping along to every word of the fast-moving song, he doesn't show off too many of the dance moves that have earned him five mirror ball trophies on Dancing With the Stars, opting instead for moves of the "run, jump, pose" variety.

Dancing with the Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were spotted holding hands while leaving the West Hollywood eatery Craig's on Monday night.
Clearly romance was still in the air following DWTS contestant Noah Galloway's on-air proposal earlier that night. Though Murgatroyd, 28, and her partner for this season, Michael Sam, were eliminated in early April, she posted a photo to Instagram last week of herself and Chmerkovskiy, 35, keeping up on DWTS last week.

Dancing with the Stars contestant Nastia Liukin and partner Derek Hough no longer have a chance at the Mirrorball, but both of them agree it didn't come as too much of a surprise after Monday's episode.
"I feel like that when we finished the dance, it felt a little bit like a final dance, a final moment and a beautiful moment," Hough told PEOPLE backstage after the show. "So I think, for us, I'm not terribly surprised, but I'm very pleased. I can't believe what [Nastia's] accomplished."

After Monday night's impressive and emotional semifinal performances, would it be such a terrible idea to just hand out four Mirrorballs and call everyone a winner? I don't think so. But unlike kindergarten soccer, someone has to win, and someone has to lose in this glittery game.
On Tuesday, one of the couples who earned some of the season's highest scores from the judges was cut, which I'm sure created an uproar from many armchair dance "experts" watching. But, to be fair, this show is as much about the popular vote as it is about dance skill, and, like it or not, sometimes it's not all about the dance. Unjust? I'll let you debate it in the comments, but for now, let's discuss what happened and find out which couples are left to battle it out for the season 20 golden Mirrorball Trophy next week.
