ABC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Sent A Fan-Favorite Home On Monday Night, Boos In The Ballroom, Highlight Hollywood News

Week Three of Dancing With the Stars was a real fun night.  Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were in good spirits, but the big question was whether Bill Nye would be able to dance. The “Science Guy” was shown backstage “getting medical treatment,” his pant leg pulled up as he sat on a gurney with a nurse by his side. His pro partner, Tyne Stecklein, told co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet that he had torn “80% of his quadricep” during a fall on last week’s show. Nye had tweeted earlier in the week that he had a partially torn ligament.  Stecklein said, “The doctor said do not dance on it so it’s been really tough.” She mentioned that she injured her knee, too. Would they be able to dance?

For the insta-elimination, it came down to Christina Milian and Bill Nye. Who had the lowest combined score from viewers’ votes last week and tonight’s judges scores?

Bill Nye!



There were boos from the ballroom and then chants of “Bill! Bill!”



“There are people here who are working so hard, who are so good. You see how they’re improving every week. I’m not going to be able to keep up with that,” said Nye. “But what breaks my heart is Tyne’s not going to be able to stay. She’s fantastic.” He went on to thank fans and added, “It’s really been cool.”
