Bill Nye The Science Guy, who first gained fame as a cast member of KING 5 s Almost Live in the late 80 s and 90 s, will try to break down the science of the ballroom floor.

Nye was announced Wednesday as one of the 12 cast members of Dancing With the Stars.

The other amateurs include reality stars Nicole Snooki Polizzi of Jersey Shore and Ozzy's kid Jack Osbourne; Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty; former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson; singer and actress Christina Milian; Saved By The Bell actress Elizabeth Berkley; High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu; Glee actress Amber Riley; country comic Bill Engvall; King of Queens actress Leah Remini and actress Valerie Harper.

Harper has defied odds with her survival since being diagnosed earlier this year with brain cancer. She recently filmed a movie role and joined a Nick at Nite reunion of The Mary Tyler Moore cast.
