Bill Nye the Science Guy was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night.
Which just might have been the best thing for him. He suffered a torn tendon in his knee and the doctor did tell him not to dance. Or maybe it was decided that he shouldn’t be on the show anymore is this is how they were going to do it. So, I’m done with the show now, unless they decide to cast another icon from my childhood. Be warned fans of the Science Guy, this video is a little heart breaking.
I am not a Dancing with the Stars fan. I am a HUGE Bill Nye the Science Guy fan. When I was 4 years old (1994) I wrote him a letter, he wrote a post card back and it’s still a crowning moment of my life. I am still a PBS kid, so any opportunity that I can get to watch him on TV I’ll take. Usually it is reruns of Bill Nye The Science Guy or on YouTube but hey new stuff is cool too. So I have picked up this show, well, until he’s eliminated. From what I’ve seen these judges, I think, are better than the So You Think You Can Dance judges which make a concerted effort to pick the winners from the audition week, and then manipulate the audience into picking the predetermined winners. Bill Nye is coming off as the crowd favorite, however his dancing does leave a great deal to be desired. But I think all nerds can agree that it is so amazing to see him on TV again.
I have to say I’m not a huge fan of her first of Tyne’s first outfit. But that I’m sure is in the tradition of the dace. The second purple one, I think, is pretty gorgeous. So it all evens out in the end.
