This season features DWTS shaking things up by transitioning to a one night, two-hour format. Beginning with the second episode on Monday, September 23, one couple will be eliminated at the end of the show by combining the judges’ scores from the first two weeks with the public votes from the previous week. Each episode will open with a “massive dance number” and end with a pair being eliminated, with the exception of the premiere.
Bill Nye and professional dancer Tyne Stecklein: dancing a Cha Cha Cha. Bill had this to say about his dance, “I’m ready to cha-cha, I’m in it to win it!”

You were alive and so happy to be dancing, you are the heart of the show.”
