9. Bill Nye
One of the more surprising castings on Dancing with the Stars was Bill Nye the science guy. When he appeared on the show in season 17 he was paired up with newcomer, Tyne Stecklein. Unfortunately, the duo didn’t last long after Nye suffered an injury to his quadriceps tendon. They were eliminated in the third week of competition.
Steve-O is best known for for his stunts on the American television series Jackass and the related movies. Less than a year after getting out of rehab, Steve-O joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars in March 2009 for season eight. He was paired up with professional dancer, Lacey Schwimmer, and surprisingly made it all the way into the sixth week before he was eliminated. His scores were consistently low throughout his time on the show, but he made up for it with his goofy outfits and enthusiasm.
7. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
The Jersey Shore star did a stint on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars in 2013, shortly after her MTV reality show ended. Polizzi was partnered up with Sasha Farber and the couple lasted five weeks on the show. Sadly, just as she was getting better and receiving high scores from judges she was eliminated from the show. The two were given the boot after delivering her highest-scoring performance, the Sasha Samba, and finished eighth overall.
