Cheryl came by to talk about some of the local charities she is supporting. Gilles came to support her even though he just had surgery two days ago for a separated shoulder, a broken clavicle, and torn rotator cuff.

"So we had this three hour surgery and I'm good to go, soon," said Gilles.

"Friday night, we're opening up our third studio in Mountain View and all the donations are going to El Camino Hospital," said Cheryl.

Cheryl is from the Bay Area and a two-time winner of the show. She and Gilles came in second this season to gymnast Shawn Johnson and her partner, by less than one percent.
