And season 17 has its first injured celebrity dancer.
Dancing With the Stars fan favorite Bill Nye suffered an injury during his performance on Monday night, E! News has confirmed. TV's beloved Science Guy is seeking treatment and could potentially need surgery after hurting his knee while dancing with partner Tyne Stecklein. "We can confirm Bill Nye was injured during his performance last night and is currently seeking medical attention," a rep for ABC tells us. "We will continue to keep you posted on his progress."
Though Nye was the lowest-scoring contestant after the first two performances of the season (his first dance only received 14 out of 30 points from the judges), he eluded elimination during DWTS' first ouster, which saw former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson leaving the competition.
