Gilles Marini took second place his first time around on “Dancing With the Stars” by the slimmest of margins. Now he’s back with a vengeance — and quite happy to be paired with Peta Murgatroyd.

The two took on the fox trot for their first dance and received rave reviews from the judges. Carrie Ann compares him to “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, while Bruno says he has “style, panache and finesse. Old-time Hollywood gloss and glamour. Technically so good.”

Len adds, “I love the mix of steps, you had great balance to teh whole routine. You had sophistication about you.” Gilles received three 8s for a total of 24, the second-highest score of the night.

What did you think, “DWTS” fans?
