In last night’s shocking double elimination on Dancing with the Stars, we learned that the super talented (and super sexy!) Gilles Marini was out of the running for the mirror ball trophy. And as bummed as we were about the elimination, it doesn’t come close to how poor Gilles is feeling right now. Shortly after he received the bad news, DWTS all-star contestant shared his disappointment with his equally disappointed fans.
It’s obvious that Gilles Marini loves to dance and that it would have meant the world if he had been able to remain on Dancing with the Stars until the finale. Sadly, his run on the show is over. Following the surprising elimination, Gilles took to Facebook to thank his fans and share his disappointment. “I am so sorry about the elimination. I feel like I let you guys down somehow We worked so so hard every single day to bring the best dances possible. Yet came out short! Life! I love you and admire your support! For ever I am your fan!”
Gilles later switched to Twitter to explain, “Hard to say what I truly feel! 1 day maybe. I danced for you and only for you. No agenda, no safety net! I love you, u mean the world to me!” Another tweet followed shortly after Gilles broke the news to his mom: “The hardest part of the night was to explain to my Mom that I am done with @DancingABC Her heart broke! I’m feeling awful!”
The good news is, seeing as what a launching pad Gilles’ first run on Dancing with the Stars became, we’re sure the actor will see many more opportunities arise as a result of his second attempt at a mirror ball trophy. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors!
