Like Jackass’ Steve-O, Bill Nye The Science guy may be the only Dancing WIth The Stars contestant I actually care about.
The mechanical engineer and popular children’s television host tried his hand at the cha-cha with his partner Tyne for the first show of the season. They even played up the “Beauty and The Geek” factor as they sashayed across the floor to the Weird Science song and with a science lab set up behind them.
While they didn’t win big with the judges, the audience did start chanting, “Bill! Bill! Bill!” after they wrapped up their dance — always a good sign in these kinds of fan-fuelled competitions.
Good luck, Bill! We hope you make it farther than Snooki!
