    Gilles is one of the few contestants whose rumba I'd actually want to see. In general, it tends to be a dance where the stars aren't all that comfortable, and it doesn't have all the flashy moves of most of the rest of the Latin dances where someone can get away with not being comfortable with the sexiness of the Latin dances by just acting as if it's all about having a party on the dance floor. You pretty much have to commit to the rumba mood to do the rumba well, unless you do a comic version of a rumba, which is tough as well.

    What I can't understand is why isn't Gilles a huge star? He is so able to do anything they ask of him and he has such expression and eagerness to work. He really should be a much bigger star than he is. I could see him in almost any kind of movie whether comedy, action and romantic of course.

    Right now he is on Switched at Birth and doing a very good job of it. I think the more exposure he gets in tv roles, the more chances he will have to attract the attention of Hollywood.

    I tuned into Bothers and Sisters to see him. He was very good, although he sort of played himself Good lord, the guy really doesn't have to say much of anything.

    I thought for the longest while he was a pro on DWTS. I didnt see all his season. When I came on here jucamer let me know he wasn't.

    He's had more guest appearances on tv shows than I realized. I think perhaps he should have been cast on the new Chicago Fire since he was in fact a firefighter in the French army. That casting might have induced me to watch the show for a while.

    According to Gilles' twitter, the rumba is going well, and he's getting the same "feel" from it as he got from his AT--"if you get what I mean."

    Um, yeah, I do sorta remember the AT....and if I get what he means, some of our posters are going to need to take cold showers right afterwards.

    Gilles posted a "preview" of his Gangham-style dance on Facebook...apparently his kids are getting good at it too:
