Bill Nye was the second celebrity eliminated in season 17 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” but he and professional dancing partner Tyne Stecklein remained upbeat while discussing their short-lived ‘DWTS’ experience on “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “It was the coolest thing. It was great,” Nye told the “GMA” anchors in Times Square.



After suffering a serious leg injury during his performance last week, Nye has been walking with a cane and unsure if he’d even be able to perform in Monday night’s show. But Stecklein got creative with her choreography, going with a robotic-themed dance to Daft Punk’s electronic pop hit, “Get Lucky.”

“We needed to do something that allowed for locked leg because, obviously, the one leg had to be, so I tried to pull some fun moves that were energetic,” Stecklein said of her decision to go with the jazzy routine that allowed for Nye to wear a leg immobilizer and stick with mostly hand movements.

And although Nye was dismissed, he made sure to give credit this morning to his partner whom he called “extraordinary,” as well as everyone behind the scenes who helps put “DWTS” on air.

    He's a logical and rational guy. Moving just your hands and upper body is not dancing any more than rapping is singing, it's verbal percussion. Nuh-uh...Before you jump on that last part, think of five rap "songs"...now hum them to me... ahem.

    I never watched the program and couldn't care less about it, but Bill Nye is such a twit that I'd vote for him to get booted from anything.

    Yes. He can't dance. He should've been the first one to leave. I'm actually surprised he made it lasted three weeks. He did at least try to dance, and he looked like he was having fun, unlike Master P and Michael Bolton, who are the lowest scoring contestants ever.

    Aside from not being a good dancer, it's best that he went home, so his injury won't get any worse.

    He needs to be booted from everything. He's no scientist, he's a flash in the pan who's 15 minutes ended.

    "Bill Nye anti creation guy" Waxing reflective, Nye complains that it is a “hard thing” to tolerate people with such imbecilic notions as a God who intelligently designed our living space. “You know, in another couple centuries that worldview, I'm sure, just won't exist,” he predicts hopefully. “There's no evidence for it.”

    Sorry Bill, too much science and not enough humanity.

    No' but the rule still stand that someone will leave each week, no matter who they are; and they knew this coming into the show's dancing contest. Next week someone else will exit left : ( so "don't just cry for him" listen, they all will exit and there will be the winner standing last. So let's keep the show moving by enjoying them while we have them each week.
