We all grew up watching him on his informative science-based television series, but this time Nye will appear on TV as the dance partner of Tyne Stecklein, a rookie addition to the pros. Here’s hoping they have great chemistry! (You see what I did there?) Other contestants include actor/singer Corbin Bleu, comedian Bill Envall, Jack Osbourne, and former NFL receiver Keyshawn Johnson among others.

To those of you who may scoff at his chances, let it be known that Nye is actually an accomplished swing dancer! We’ll be rooting for you, Bill!

Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars premieres on ABC on Monday, September 16th at 8pm.
