Hunk to the rescue.

Hottie Gilles Marini, 36, knocked a judge right out of her seat – literally – on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars. But luckily he was there to catch her fall.

The DWTS contestant’s moves overtook judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and as she praised the French actor’s sexy moves – “Let the baby making begin,” she said – the excited judge, 44, suddenly slipped from her perch at the judges’ table.

Proving chivalry (even on the dance floor) is not dead, Marini, partnered this season with pro Peta Murgatroyd, quickly swooped in to scoop her up Inaba in his tanned and chiseled arms.
