Bill Nye and Tyne Stecklein decided to dance their Dancing With the Stars 2013 Hollywood Night Jazz (Season 17, Week 3) tonight, Monday, September 30, despite Bill having torn a tendon, which sounds super terrible, and looked even worse.

So, the doctor told Bill that he shouldn't dance unless he's in a wheelchair. Tyne was really sad about it. Bill decided he should dance anyway, with choreography that makes use of him not moving a knee. Um. OK. Sounds safe.

The result was a weirdo futuristic Jazz that put the focus on Bill's upper body. Also it's to "Get Lucky," because sure. It's a good try, at least. And Bill does look like he's having a ton of fun. Props for going out there and doing it. He earned big cheers.

Bruno said he saw no Jazz, but it was entertaining. Carrie Ann complimented his spirit, and said she was impressed. Len gave Tyne props for choreographing around the leg, and Len complimented Bill on his guts.

His scores? 6, 5, 5, for a 16/30.

Check back for the video soon!
