Here Is Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Dancing With the Stars Debut

Dancing With the Stars kicked off its seventeenth season on Monday, and it turns out 57-year-old Bill Nye the Science Guy speaks about dancing like this: "We're gonna produce a cha-cha experience like you've never seen, it'll fill you with joy … or it'll be sort of an unwatchable minute and eight seconds." The judges weren't that into it, but Carrie Ann Inaba did call Nye "the heart of the show," which is exactly what you have to call a man who dances to "Weird Science" while wearing a lab coat, suspenders, and bow tie.
