Yup, Bill Nye the Science Guy is going to be on season 17 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' We think he's going to win. Not just because we're looking for some sort of 'Revenge of the Nerds'-type fantasy to play out (well, mostly that), but also because Nye has got some moves. Don't believe us? Fine, we're used to that. Check out these GIFs.
'Dancing with the Stars' is already half-over, so we thought it was a good time to handicap the remaining contestants. Taking into consideration factors like their skills and apparent popularity with audience voters, here's how we think everyone will place.

J.R. hurt his ankle pretty
Five couples danced two individual routines on Monday night, an evening which also saw J.R. and Karina get the first and second perfect scores of the season.
So which couples made next week’s semi-finals — and who went home?
For Ralph Macchio, it was close, but not close enough.
The 'Karate Kid' star was officially kicked out of the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 12 competition Tuesday night, ending a somewhat rocky road to the semifinals.
Macchio, who began the season with an unexpectedly strong debut performance, thanked his fans and partner Karina Smirnoff for an unforgettable run on the show.
Despite a solid run in the competition, tonight, 'Dancing With the Stars' season 12 bid adieu to rapper Romeo, just one week before the semi-finals.
