Maybe because he saw a YouTube video showing one used on vocals. Recently when I was trying to decide whether to buy the Fabfilter Pro G gate I did my usual research in addition to having tested it myself a while back and I ran into a video where the fellow used it to gate out the fan noise in his room while recording the narration for aid video. You know - cut out the noise when he stops speaking or between word pauses.

For me I'd turn the fan off and get a quieter recording space.
