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."

Peta Murgatroyd Blogs: Dancing with the Stars Elimination Left Gilles a 'Bit Devastated'

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14only her second season on the serieswith Donald Driver. The Australia native blogged for PEOPLE.com about competing with Gilles Marini in the current all-star season. The pair was eliminated during Week 8. Murgatroyd has written her final post.

Elimination is always a little disappointing. Gilles [Marini] really wanted to win badly and he was a bit devastated that he got cut. But he's cool with it now. He's okay.

I don't think he expected it. He worked really hard and he's the type of person who believes if you work hard, you get results. But it's not always the case with this TV show. Everyone works hard and everyone was amazing. It was such a tough competition, and I believe we were very lucky to have gotten that far.

It was another week of double trouble on Dancing with the Stars.

Two all-star couples got the boot on Tuesday night, following Monday's Veteran's Day tribute.

Combining their scores from Monday and the previous elimination-free week, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were again in the bottom spot, just below Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff.

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd were uncharacteristically in the bottom three.

It's week eight and we've got one more week until the semi-finals. This is when everyone really starts to get aches and pains and just gets lethargic.

Occasionally I'll have a glass of wine when I get home at night, but usually to unwind, I hop straight into bed. I'm exhausted. There's no time for going out and partying. All my energy lies in getting Gilles [Marini] to the finals.

Country week on Dancing with the Stars has featured more emotions than, well, a country song.

But neither the first perfect 30s for Apolo Ohno and Sabrina Bryan, nor the injury-rebound performances by Shawn Johnson and Melissa Rycroft on Monday night could compare to Tuesday's surprises, including a shocking elimination. Read on for more.
