You know it’s a Dancing With the Stars All-Stars season when the stakes are so high, a contestant injures himself before rehearsals even begin!

That’s what reportedly happened to stud Gilles Marini, who tells E! that he “hurt something already.” Gilles and his partner Peta Murgatroyd haven’t even started working together yet, but still, the Latin stud is in pain.

“I think it’s the MCL,” says Gilles. “But who cares! I will still dance.”

Gilles originally came in second place with his Season 8 partner Cheryl Burke. But Cheryl is dancing with Emmitt Smith for All-Stars, so he’s taken his gorgeous new partner Peta in stride.

"I just met her yesterday and I got over it," he said, referring to his partner swap. "I'm concentrating on who I'm going to dance with and she's a genius dancer and sweet."

Hopefully he makes it to his first rehearsal without breaking a leg!

Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out the full All-Stars cast list here.
