After a third week of performances live on ABC, the Dancing With the Stars results are in for the second Monday night elimination of the 17th season.

So who's the odd man (or woman) out this time around?

Bill Nye on Dancing With the Stars

Combining both scores from this week's episode and public votes from last week, the Dancing With the Stars results show is harder to predict than ever.

Heading into tonight, the Bills (Nye and Engvall) brought with them the lowest scores, and seemingly the poorest prospects for advancing to next week.

The Science Guy was also nursing some torn ligaments, further dimming his prospects. Did either of them surprise us? Let's get to the DWTS results ...

Bill Nye has been eliminated, with partner Tyne Stecklein.

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

The struggling Science Guy was sent home at the end of the night.

After sustaining an injury and tearing his quad in last week's competition, Nye was determined to get on the floor this week despite his doctor's orders.

He and Stecklein danced a jazz routine to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."

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

Stecklein had nothing but praise for her partner, while Nye added:

"Thank you all very much, thank you for keeping me in this long."

"These other people are extraordinary, it's really been cool."

Should Bill Nye have been sent home on DWTS?
