Bill Nye has decided to dance this week. They show last week when he fell at the end of the performance. He sees the medic and he says he has a bad feeling. The doc shows that there is a tear through the center of the tendon and if he pushes it, he will need surgery. Doc says he does not recommend any sort of dancing this week. Bill wants to win. He is in it to win it!

Bill and Tyne are in futuristic costumes. She looks like Lady Gaga and he looks like a baseball catcher with silver and lit up breast plate. She is doing a lot of the dancing but he is moving mostly in one spot.
Bruno says it was entertaining. There was no jazz. Carrie says Tyne gave great choreography. Len says to perform with this kind of injury takes guts and show a lot about the man!

Len says that his score does not reflect his admiration!

Brant and Peta are safe!
The team going home tonight is Bill Nye and Tyne. Mark and Christina are safe for another week!
Brooke asks him if this is a blessing in disguise. He says there are people who work hard every week and he feels for Tyne as she is now done for her first season. Tyne says she was thrilled to be there this season and she will miss Bill's humor and maybe the random science facts a little bit. Bill thanks the crowd for keeping him there. The dances for tonight are recapped. Tom says Bill Nye and Tyne will be on the View tomorrow! Don't forget that Julianne Hough is a guest judge next Monday, filling in for Len. See you next Monday!
