Bill Nye has made it through another round of "Dancing With the Stars."

This week, Nye dressed up as Beethoven and danced the pasodoble to the composer's Fifth Symphony. Despite tripping at the end of his routine, he managed to get less critical reviews from the judges compared with last week. One praised him for working with what he had, while another praised the "fun that he put into the dance."

In his first performance, Nye danced a cha-cha in costume as a mad scientist. That number, set to the song "Weird Science," was panned by the judges. But despite his shaky start, Nye has emerged as a crowd favorite.
