His dancing has been nothing special.
What Cheryl can do with him as a dancer is limited; but, the public loves him, and votes.
This result shows how important having the right "mesh" of celebrity and Pro.
Peta/Gilles never achieved "it", even though they worked very hard.
Some of Peta's concepts/choreography fell flat; making Gilles seem "gimmicky" and forced, instead of relying on his considerable ability and innate sexiness.
I will always wonder what would have happened had Gilles and Cheryl been paired again.
She did some of her best work for/with him.
I'll miss Gilles.
He really loved DWTS, wanted to win; and took the show seriously, unlike many others,
