Gilles Marini is a Kitchen Casanova

Gilles Marini makes a convincing case that Prince Charming really does exist afterall. Not only does he have dashing good looks, rhythmic dance moves, and a kind persona, Gilles melts women's hearts with his culinary expertise.
Happily married for 14 years and counting, he has plenty of women in his life to cook for. Just last week at Dancing With the Stars, his wife and two fictional TV wives were in the audience cheering him on. "I had three wives that day and my mistress was played by Peta Murgatroyd," he joked. He'll even be welcoming Peta for a family dinner party at his house soon and hosting Thanksgiving, for the very first time as an American citizen.
"It's like bringing flowers to a woman… cooking for her is even better," he says. In the eyes of googly-eyed women, Gilles seems very deserving of the perfect ten on and off the dance floor, but he begs to differ. Had it not been for the new half-point system, "I would have gotten a nine [from Len Goodman]," he admits. "It's too early in the competition to give a ten."
To follow in Gilles' footsteps, women have until November 4 to enter their special man in Buitoni's Girls Like Guys Who Can Cook contest at facebook.com/BuitoniUSA. With a $10,000 prize at stake, men across America should be rushing to their local grocery and putting on an apron.
Hopefully there aren't too many cooks in the kitchen when captain Gilles leads his team to the guilty please song Gangnam Style on Monday night's episode of Dancing With the Stars on ABC. And, don't forget to set your DVR for Switched at Birth on ABC Family for a double dose of Gilles on Monday night.
