Claim to fame: French actor, "Brothers & Sisters" star
Last seen on: Season 6 in 2009
Standout moment: Fans thought that Marini and partner Cheryl Burke were robbed, coming in less than 1% behind gymnast Shawn Johnson and her partner, Mark Ballas, who won the Mirror Ball trophy in Season 6.
Week 8 All-Star elimination:The couples had to perform two whole dances: an individual ballroom dance with a military theme in honor of Veterans Day and a Latin trio performance with another professional or troupe member added to their group. Marini and partner Peta Murgatroyd looked Top Gun cool in their black flight suits performing what might have been the quickest quickstep in the ballroom to "Highway to the Danger Zone," but Marini had a few "little slips in his feet." His trio salsa included Chelsie Hightowner, but his timing and musicality were a bit off. Gilles and Peta received a 29.5 for their quickstep, and a 29 for their salsa trio but the judges' scores weren't enough to keep him safe and he was sent packing. | Recap
