Maria Menounos gets more than just a workout when she stops by for a cycling class on next Tuesday’s episode of Hollywood Cycle.

In an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, instructor Brandon Mills decides to take advantage of the E! host’s visit to the studio – and does so behind Nichelle Hines’ back.

“You know, in this town it’s all about opportunity,” Mills says in the clip. “Maria Menounos has the ability to open doors to an untapped market that otherwise I would never be exposed to.”

Mills pulls Menounos, 37, aside after her class to propose a business meeting.

“I’m really glad that y’all are here, because I’ve been Lance Bass‘ fitness expert on Dirty Pop for three or four years now, and I thought it would be really fun if we all got together and did a show,” he says before suggesting a dinner to discuss a possible collaboration.

Menounos does seem receptive to the idea, so Mills’ bold move may have paid off!

Hollywood Cycle airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on E!.
