Living, my original point was to say that, even if I don't recognize a name at the beginning of the show, I often end up enjoying those that I didn't previously know better than many that I did know prior to the season. This is very similar to your last statement, so I don't think we disagree (I guess I used that word, but gave a very specific context for this show).Originally Posted by Living;3392433;
Gilles wasn't known to me before the movie, and I didn't know anything else you mentioned about him until your post. So for me, he was pretty much an unknown, but I'll say it again - I'm really glad he's doing this show because I enjoy his dancing! I don't really care what brought him to the show.
The only thing I would disagree with you about is Andrea Bocelli - I think he is very well-known and would be considered a star by most anyone's standards.
