Bill Nye the Science Guy Suffered a "Partially Torn Ligament" on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday Night
BILL NYE . . . the Science Guy . . . injured his knee when he tripped at the end of his paso doble on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday night
Last night, he posted a photo of himself in a doctor's office, with his knee all wrapped up. The caption said, quote, "Here is the scoop: Partially torn ligament. Awaiting the doc's orders with Tyne. We plan to dance! Stand by."
It sounds like the doctor's recommendation will determine whether or not Bill continues dancing. If he IS forced to withdraw, the show may skip an elimination, or bring back KEYSHAWN JOHNSON, who was dropped this week.
Bill was in danger of being cut anyway. His paso doble got a 17 from the judges, the lowest score of the night. Judge CARRIE ANN INABA called it, quote, "a weird, sort-of bizarre masterpiece of insanity."
