Why He Was Cut: Color everyone shocked! After earning a 29.5 for the quickstep and a 29 for a sultry salsa the night before, sexy Gilles Marini was giving the competition his all and it showed. Sadly, he and Murgatroyd were eliminated two weeks shy of the finale after failing to capture the popular vote. The tall, dark and handsome Frenchman left on a high note as he said, "It's all good. It's not always about winning. It's about how hard you try."
