Question: The paso doble, which Gilles Marini memorably performed shirtless on Dancing with the Stars, is a dance modeled after the movements of what type of event?

A. Boxing match
B. Fencing duel
C. Wrestling match
D. Bullfight

If you're a fan of Dancing with the Stars, this question should be a cinch. Following the successful Real Housewives-themed Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the quiz show launches another special week, this time inspired by DWTS. Host Tom Bergeron will sit as the Ask the Expert expert with fans of the show taking the hot seat opposite host Meredith Viera.

Just like the question above, DWTS-inspired trivia questions will be dished together with general trivia. Meanwhile, pros Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower, Derek Hough and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba will be on hand to help deliver the questions.

At the end of each episode, Vieira, the contestants and studio audience will celebrate with for a dance party on the Millionaire set. This themed week will run until April 2.

In related news, the current Today co-host has defended Jon and Kate Plus 8 star and DWTS contestant Kate Gosselin, from accusations that she's trying to advance her career at the expense of her eight kids.

"I can't speak for her, but I find it troublesome when other people weigh in on whether she's a good mother. What do they know? Are they in her life?," she tells the Boston Herald.
The two won't meet on the DWTS-themed Millionaire week, but Viera, who once chose family over career and quit 60 minutes, says that she "never got the impression" that Kate is a "bad mother."

Judging from her second routine, however, Gosselin is proving to be a bad dancer. Her jive with pro partner Tony Dovolani was disastrous from start to finish. Along with Buzz Aldrin, she's one of the main contenders to be the first one eliminated on tomorrow's results show.
