I know you're dying to find out why Gilles came back. He says it's the American dream. Look, he's foreign. And hot. I'm going to give him a pass. Gilles says that being on the show allowed him to be a working actor, and now he's on the show Switched at Birth. Tom teases Gilles that he's not a dancer, and he says it a lot. So then we get a clip package of Gilles saying a million times that he's not a dancer.
Time for an encore, but first Len has to talk about how impressive the first night of dancing was. And we're going to see Emmitt and Cheryl again. I still don't think this was the best dance of the night. I think Emmitt will be a leader, but he still looks a little stiff to me. He does have those fast feet, though.
So why did Emmitt come back? He says he wanted to be a part of the first All-Star cast, and didn't want to feel left out. He thinks it's a little easier to dance with Cheryl again but also a challenge because people have high expectations. Tom asks Emmitt if he's in the zone like he was at the end of his season, and Emmitt says he's working towards it but it will come faster given the high level of competition.
I really should have just skipped the first hour of tonight's show, right? I'm realizing that now.
Another group: Shawn, Sabrina, and Kirstie. This is everyone, right? This is the last group. Why did Shawn Johnson come back? Shawn retired from gymnastics and she was happy to once again have a goal to work towards. She is definitely thinner or more likely, less muscular than her previous season. Derek and Shawn sit down to talk to Tom to make the height difference less obvious, and then we get a clip package where Derek pretended he couldn't see Shawn because she's so short. Shawn doesn't seem to think it's that funny; it's not. Stop it, Derek.
Sabrina got voted back in and I think she has the best reason to return; she was voted out earlier than most thought she would be, and she's the standard everyone holds up as "anyone can go at any time." Tom asks her if she feels extra pressure because the fans voted her in. Louis does feel pressure, and Sabrina says she's just honored.
