In more than a few circles, a Mirrorball Trophy is way more important than a Super Bowl ring.

No one has learned to appreciate that more than Emmitt Smith, who admitted to PEOPLE that lots of people didn't know he was a former running back until they saw him cutting the rug during the 3rd and 15th seasons of Dancing with the Stars.

"It bridged a gap," Smith said Tuesday at the DWTS 10th Anniversary celebration held in West Hollywood, California. "I get a lot of the, 'I know you from Dancing with the Stars' comments."

Helping a son prepare for his high school sports team is a proud moment for any father. But when Gilles Marini's teenage son decided to join the football team, there was just one problem: His father had "no clue" how the game was played.

"I have no idea about [American] football, no clue!" Marini, 37, told PEOPLE with a laugh while attending Wednesday's Los Angeles premiere of The World's End with son Georges.

"For me, I'm like, 'I want to play 45 minutes straight like soccer,' but it doesn't work that way, and I'm learning a little bit more, but he would beat me, big time."

With the all-star season of Dancing with the Stars now in its home stretch, the five celebrities still standing tell PEOPLE they're older, wiser and more competitive than ever – and that returning to the ballroom has been more exciting and rewarding than their first time on the show.

"You can't even compare them," says Apolo Ohno. "Karina [Smirnoff] has shown me so much about dancing on a different level now, because I think can accept it now. I'm able to express that stuff."
