The former Baywatch star became the first contestant to be voted off the British competition earlier this month (Jan13) after failing to impress the judges and the voting public with her debut routine with professional partner Matt Evers.
She blamed a slight wardrobe malfunction for the loss, but she is refusing to give up on the sport completely and has turned her attention to the show in Holland.
She tells British newspaper The Mirror, "I'm happy to show the real routine and show the U.K. what it was supposed to look like. I have spent months in training."
After she was booted off the U.K. show, the actress insisted she would keep practising her new hobby, stating, "It was really fun and now I know how to skate a little bit. I'll keep skating for sure."
Anderson will appear on the Dutch programme with Evers, who she is also rumoured to be dating.
The former Baywatch star has been learning to ice skate in recent weeks, and impressed the judges with her debut routine with professional Matt Evers, placing midway on the leaderboard.
However, Anderson found herself in the bottom two alongside British TV presenter Keith Chegwin after the viewers voted.
She skated again, to Sinead O'Connor's Sacrifice, in a bid to stay in the competition but experienced a slight wardrobe malfunction when her dress slipped down to reveal part of her breast.
Anderson told co-host Phillip Schofield, "My dress fell off! (I was) a little wobbly."
The judges opted to save Chegwin, but Anderson was gracious in defeat.
Speaking after she was booted off the show, the actress said, "(I feel) sad. It was really fun and now I know how to skate a little bit. I'll keep skating for sure. I feel so bad, I'm sorry Matt - he should not be here. I just stumbled, my dress, my boobs fell out, it happens."
The former Baywatch star is learning to ice skate for the series, in which she is paired with professional Matt Evers.
The pair has been practising routines ahead of the show's first episode and Anderson is sporting a number of bruises across her body due to the tough training sessions.
She tells Britain's Closer magazine, "Ice skating is all new to me and the rehearsals have been really tough. My skating partner, Matt Evers, is great. Our chemistry is really good and he's been so patient. I love the choreography and the lifts, but everything is so difficult - I've got bruises everywhere."
Anderson admits her sons were sceptical about her involvement with the show when she first told them, adding, "When I told Brandon that I would be skating on Dancing On Ice, he just rolled his eyes. My sons like surfing and playing rugby. Typical boys!"
The series is set to debut in the U.K. on Sunday (06Jan13).
Based on H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger's bestselling book of the same name Friday Night Lights tells the true story of the dusty West Texas town of Odessa where nothing much happens until September rolls around. That's when the town's 20 000 or so denizens pour into Ratliff Stadium the country's biggest high school football field every Friday night to watch the Permian Panthers Odessa's "boys in black " take to the field. All the town's hope and dreams are pinned on the padded shoulders of these young gridiron heroes--including insecure quarterback Mike Winchell (Lucas Black); cocky self-assured running back Boobie Miles (Derek Luke); headstrong self-destructive tailback Don Billingsley (Garrett Hedlund) who must contend with an overbearing abusive dad (Tim McGraw--yes that Tim McGraw the country singer); and the team's spiritual leader middle linebacker Ivory Christian (newcomer Lee Jackson). The Panthers begin their season with one thing on their minds--winning their fifth straight championship for the first time in the team's 30-year history--but for their coach Gary Gaines (Billy Bob Thornton) it also means instilling a love and joy of the game in the boys' hearts amidst tremendous pressures and expectations. Easier said than done.
There isn't a false note in any of the performances and no one falls back on clichéd versions of their characters as is so easy to do in rah-rah sports movies. Thornton does a particularly good job as Gaines keeping you guessing whether he's going to be a hardass insensitive to his players' emotional needs (like so many movie football coaches before him) or if he truly means to coach his boys in a fair and decent way. Gaines too has to deal with his own pressures especially from the townsfolk who are likely to string him up if the team loses the championship. As for Gaines' players Black (the oh-so-serious kid from Thornton's Sling Blade) is all grown up and buffed out and still very serious. It works for the young actor though as the beleaguered Winchell struggles with the love-hate relationship he has with his chosen sport. Other standouts include Luke (Antwone Fisher) as the star player Boobie whose cocksureness leads him to an injury; Hedlund as the volatile Billingsley trying desperately to please his father; and McGraw making his film debut as the father a former Permian Panther champion who sure hasn't given up his competitive spirit basically beating it into his son. First Faith Hill (McGraw's real-life wife) in The Stepford Wives and now McGraw--who knew country singers could act?
From All the Right Moves to Varsity Blues to Remember the Titans Friday Night Lights unfortunately doesn't completely distinguish itself from the pack of football movies before it--like those this is all about how the young players--be they underdogs second-string nobodies or stars--rising above the mounting pressure and playing the best they can bless their hearts. Still there's no question the sports genre--particularly football--always gets the juices pumping with FNL being no exception. It might have something to do with our sick fascination with watching bone-crunching hits and body-punishing tackles. It's dangerous out there for these guys; no other sport (besides maybe hockey) can elicit such wince-inducing emotion and actor/director Peter Berg (The Rundown) exploits that. Obviously influenced by Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday Berg effectively paints his own gritty documentary-style picture of the competitive sport without relying on too many trite gushy over-the-top moments. And to give it credit the film does not necessarily have a feel-good "let's win one for the Gipper" ending; it is based on a true story after all and as we know real life isn't all sunshine and roses especially in the bloodthirsty world of Texas high school football.
