Bill Nye Injured His Knee During 'Dancing with the Stars' Performance
The Science Guy is seeking medical attention and may need surgery after hurting his knee while dancing on Monday night.


Bill Nye has become the first injured contestant of "Dancing with the Stars" season 17. A representative for ABC has confirmed that the host of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" hurt his knee while dancing with pro partner Tyne Stecklein in a Monday, September 23 episode of the reality show.

"We can confirm Bill Nye was injured during his performance last night and is currently seeking medical attention," a rep for ABC tells E! News. "We will continue to keep you posted on his progress." The site adds that the comedian may need surgery for his injury.

Bill survived the first elimination which was announced on week 2 this season, although he landed at the bottom of scoreboard with a two-week total of 31 points. On Monday, he tripped at the end of his fun paso doble, which judge Carrie Ann Inaba dubbed a "weird, bizarre masterpiece of insanity."
