We are SO disappointed in science right now!!
Billy Nye was one of our favorite contestants this season on Dancing With The Stars, and it was mostly because we absolutely love who he is outside of the show — it’s just a shame that for some reason they kept thinking it was necessary to push the science thing for his dance routines!
He should’ve been breaking OUT of that shell, but because he didn’t, we’re sad to say that’s the first way science let him down.
The second way was when Bill injured his knee: he just wasn’t as mobile as he should have been, and they tried their best to hide it with his robot dance (above). It’s a huge bummer, and we expected more from science after the injury — what, no healing contraption? No bionic suit??
COME ON, SCIENCE! Bill has done so much for you throughout these years! You owed him!!
Oh well. Now he can get back to inventing a new species or figuring out how to terraform Mars or whatever he actually does!
