What you need to keep an eye out for then is when Melissa takes her turn at Samba, see how the two dances compare.
    I was just thinking that it would be cool to watch both their sambas, one after the other.

    Melissa did her salsa last week, and it was outstanding. She got a 26; for some unknown reason, Len gave an 8 despite his extremely positive comments.

    Not that I could begin to explain the difference between a Salsa and a Samba

    It's an interesting sidebar....but let's see how long they wait to give Melissa and Giles the same dance on the same night.

    Well, you could tell that I'm not clear on the distinction either!

    Maybe if they tie for 1st, the dance-off will be the same dance. Although it would probably be more fair (not that TPTB probably care about that) to have them each do a random draw.

    The Samba is sexy They have AT next week and I love that one as well. I think Gilles will remain a frontrunner throughout the comp.

    I think they flip flop dances at a certain point. Probably Week 5.

    I love this guy!

    He should have at least gotten a 10 last night IMO, he was great! And Carrie Ann was right, Cheryl really seems to be working harder for/with Gilles, probably because she knows how good he is.

    Cheryl and Gilles are stunning together. When they dance, they dance with such passion I don't see or feel with the other dancers.

    It's good to see that so many people who had never heard of this guy before being on DWTS are giving him a chance. Perhaps it isn't such a bad idea to cast people who don't fit the traditional definition of 'star.'

    But, he is a star. Gilles is an actor in France and now breaking out in the US. He has ALREADY acted in a US movie but needs more exposure in this country. Usually the stars who come on this show ALREADY have achieved or done something. Probably they have been out of the spotlight for a bit and need exposure or they want to change their image or a re-vamp of their carears, but, they ARE stars. Even Holly is part of a show and was made famous by Hugh Hefner. Maybe we have not all heard their names but, it depends on our interests. Of course now we have reality a contestant infamous for being a seriel dumpee - this one wants to be a star. Your comment above gives her also that opportunity. Great
