DWTS Backstage: Gilles Marini Sounds Off on "Stick-Skinny Girls"

DWTS, Gilles Marini, Cheryl Burke ABC/KELSEY MCNEAL

As if his dashing good looks and smooth dance moves weren't enough, Dancing With the Stars' hunky frontrunner Gilles Marini just gave us one more reason to adore him.

E! News caught up with the star backstage after tonight's elimination show and asked for his two cents on how Cheryl Burke's weight had been a topic of discussion in the press and on the fan boards.

Read on to find out what Gilles' fantastic response is...

"If women look like her," Gilles tells us, "that would be the perfect world. She doesn't need to change anything. Who likes stick-skinny girls? Where's the flavor? Whoever likes those stick-skinny girls never had sex before in their life."

Bravo, Gilles. Bravo.

Here's more backstage scoop from tonight's show, which saw Holly Madison and Steve Wozniak go home.

Derek Hough on Steve Wozniak's Goodbye Goodies: "For a guy who pretty much invented the computer, he handwrote us all letters, which is amazing. A little over two pages for each person," Derek says. Lil' Kim adds, "He gave us all gifts."

Holly Madison on the Upside: "I think I've learned a lot about dancing, and I'm going to keep working out definitely. We would rehearse like six hours every day, so I definitely toned up. I was able to eat whatever I wanted."

Steve Wozniak on His Dancing Future: "I will dance wherever I am. I will take ballroom lessons. I'll make it a part of my life. I hope there are a lot of other people like me that never danced their entire lives. [People] sitting at a computer terminal all day long, who are afraid to [dance]. You can actually go out there and dance and have fun."

Ty Murray on Rigging Votes: "[Steve Wozniak] is such a nice gentleman with such a great spirit. I think if he knew how to rig the vote, I don't think he'd do it."

Derek Hough on Lil' Kim: "I call her 'Gigantic Kim' sometimes."

Carrie Ann Inaba on the Frontrunners: "There are definitely frontrunners. Right now I would say Gilles, Melissa Rycroft and Lil' Kim. Lil' Kim's a little wild horse. She's not afraid to push the boundaries and I think that's going to be her power."

Melissa Rycroft on Elimination Night: "I don't think you can ever feel safe on this show because as you remember, [season 5 contender] Sabrina Bryan ended up going home early, even though she didn't deserve to go."

Woz on Marriage: "When you get married and have children, those are good experiences, too, but this is definitely the most fun."

What do you think of Gilles' amazing comments? And how sweet is Woz for writing all those goodbye letters? Send us your thoughts in the comments below.
