Bill Nye is looking at a serious injury on Dancing With the Stars. The science man who has the hearts of America was rehearsing on Tuesday and ended up injuring his leg. While some fans are worried it might put him out of the competition, it seems that Nye has other plans. Suggesting he is planning to dance, the injury apparently won’t be slowing him down.
“Here is the scoop: partially torn ligament. Awaiting the doc's orders with Tyne. We plan to dance! Stand by...” wrote Bill Nye on his official Instagram account. The star posted a picture with his leg bandaged up, but he didn’t look like he was in pain.
Dancing With the Stars contestants have seen plenty of injuries over the years. Increasingly common, the vigorous routine has celebrities who don’t dance prone to getting hurt after intense rehearsals. Avoiding injuries are tough as the show is on a schedule so the stars receive a crash course.
Fans have fingers crossed that Bil Nye will compete next Monday. He was the underdog worth cheering on!
