Playing 'DWTS' Cast Shows Support for Injured Bill Nye

The third episode of ABC's mega-hit Dancing with the Stars aired last night, and ET caught up with the stars and the pro dancers after the show to talk about what worked, what didn't, and to get their thoughts on the injured Bill Nye leaving the competition.

The theme for last night's show was Hollywood, but the thing on everyone's mind was injuries. From the painful bumps and bruises the contestants have suffered during training, to the game-ending injuries like Bill Nye's torn ligament, many stars competed through the pain this week.

However, no one got more respect than Nye, who performed a number that his dance partner, Tyne Stecklein, choreographed around his injury. While it only earned him 16 points for its technical execution, it scored him tons of respect from everyone on the show.

"The fact that he came out and performed as well as he did, it's just hats off to him all the way," said DTWS contestant Jack Osbourne. His dance partner Cheryl Burke agreed enthusiastically.

"I give Bill so much credit for getting up there," said Elizabeth Berkley of Nye's performance. "It just says so much about his character… He's an amazing guy.
