Even Bill Nye can’t do anything about a torn ligament.

Nye, the star of the 1990s educational science show Bill Nye the Science Guy, was eliminated during Monday night’s Dancing With the Stars following a poor — but admirable — showing with partner and professional dancer Tyne Stecklein. Nye, 57, partially tore a ligament when he tripped on the cuff of his pants during his performance last week.

The duo performed a futuristic jazz number to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” but came away with only 16 points.

“What breaks my heart is Tyne [has to go home],” Nye said after learning his fate. “She’s fantastic.”
