'DWTS' Results: Bill Nye Eliminated In Week 3 Following Injury

Posted: Updated:

The "Dancing with the Stars" results are in and Bill Nye has been eliminated, along with his partner, first-time pro Tyne Stecklein.

Joining them in the bottom three after Hollywood Week were Christina Milian and Mark Ballas, and Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd.

After sustaining an injury and tearing his quad in last week's competition, Nye was determined to compete this week despite his doctor's orders. He and Stecklein danced a jazz routine to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" that didn't incorporate much jazz, but won the admiration of the crowd and judges nonetheless.

"There's people here who are working so hard and are so good … I'm not going to be able to keep up with that," Nye admitted. "What breaks my heart is that Tyne's not going to stay in."

Stecklein had nothing but praise for her partner and her first year on "DWTS." "It's been amazing, I'm so honored to be here and have been partnered with this guy," she said.

To his fans, Nye said, "thank you all very much, thank you for keeping me in this long. These other people are extraordinary, it's really been cool."

"Dancing with the Stars" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
