Bill Nye Tore 80% Of Quadricep, Still Performed Robot Dance, Got The Boot From Dancing With The Stars

October 1, 2013


Apparently everybody's favorite science guy Bill Nye tore 80% of his quadricep last week and was advised to not dance this week on Dancing With the Stars but performed this Daft Punk inspired number anyways. He and his partner got the boot afterwards. 80% of a quadricep, good lord. That's like, 3/4 of the muscle. "Try 4/5ths." Don't you try to out-math me. Millard Fillmore was the 13th president of the United States. "What are you doing?" Social-studying the shit out of you! But seriously, 80%? I'm surprised he can even stand. Because one time I got a paper cut between my thumb and index finger and called out of work for a week. At any rate, with Bill off the show now, he can go back to doing something that actually matters. Basically absolutely anything besides being on Dancing With The Stars, but hopefully science.

Hit the jump for the video, or don't, it's kind of sad and I couldn't tell if Bill's expression the whole time because he was trying to get into his robot character or he's so hopped up on pain pills he thought he was in the Matrix.

Thanks to lilco and Georgia, who agree Bill should have applied way more of his biology and physics knowledge to his dance routines.

    This is basically porn. I mean, who is actually looking at robot dude. Yes, I know he's "famous" and a nerd-god or whatever, but that lady has a fine body. They should have just had her dance and had him lie down on the floor and look up her skirt the whole time. I would have voted for that!

  • If you think this is "basically porn," there is a vast new section of the internet I can introduce you to called "actually porn."

    #yeah kinda porn ! one of the ladies was more right than the other ; ) ... maybe conditioned gynophobic nerd-boys are looking to the old funny fart > but that does not means less "porn" !

    I wanted to see the judging at the end. Just so I could hate the judges, and love Bill even more for always being a good (in this case GREAT) sport. What a guy,

  • mvious

    They actually werent hating on him. They were proud that he was dancing for her and out there trying.

  • Shane Anderson

    When I was a kid, I wanted to learn how to do the thriller dance so I could just bust it out when I wanted it.

    I should have learned how to do the Nye instead.

  • And now that he's gone, their ratings will drop next week by 80%.

    I have to say that was pure awesome. Bill was a true bad@ss to get out there and put something together for his fans despite the fact that his quad was ripped to shreds. This was my favorite dance all season.
