Usually the contestants get to relax for a bit after results night, however, now that they have two dances to perform each week they get straight to rehearsals. “We are going back to work immediately.

That’s just how it is.” “Yes,” added Ty, “That’s all we do. Dance, eat, sleep.”
Another thing that you may not know is that Gilles makes a point of coming out before every show and greeting fans and kissing his wife Carole. Gilles said, “I always kiss my wife before every show.” Of course, last week he kissed her after the on-screen performance, but why? He responds, “It’s very simple. 19 million messages about ‘something is going on with Cheryl. You always kiss her and not your wife. What’s going on?’ They don’t understand, I kiss my wife before the show and when it’s on and after. ‘Guys, look, I do kiss my wife A LOT!’”
