Dancing with the Stars fans rejoice! After making Carrie Ann Inaba swoon with his nearly shirtless Bollywood costume last week, Gilles Marini is set to wear even less in tonight’s team dance. Is this just a ploy to get the fan base out and voting?
Gilles Marini is one of two team captain’s for this week’s team challenge on Dancing with the Stars. And he’s taking that role seriously. The top contestant may be an exceptional dancer, but he wants his entire team to look sexy for their unique ballroom rendition of Gangnam Style. This group consists of fellow contestants Kelly Monaco, Kirstie Alley and Emmitt Smith, as well as pro dancers Peta Murgatroyd, Val Chmerkovskiy and Maks Chmerkovskiy.
Val and Maks are both very attractive specimens, but it looks like Gilles is once again taking the fall for the obligatory role of eye candy. Referring to dancing shirtless, Gilles told The Clicker, “I think it’s going to be my part again. I really try hard not to, but they told me, ‘Dude, you have no choice. We want you in the minimum.’ And when they told me what my minimum would be, it was pretty much nothing. I’m going to have the minimum amount of clothing ever. I mean, nobody ever danced that way.”
Apparently there’s a reason (besides driving the ladies wild with his washboard abs) that Gilles is dressing to the “minimum.” He explained, “The only time we’re going to be able to dance with that minimum is to dance on Gangnam Style because we have to replicate what the video was about.”
When in doubt, blame your shirtlessness on the dance song. Hey, we’re not complaining!
