* Similarly, around ten years after the show ended, Nye started doing speaking tours at colleges. It's not at all uncommon for the tickets for his lectures to sell out within ''minutes''. As was once overheard standing in line for said tickets, "Dude's a rock star!"

*** And making sure Ham's attempt to gain publicity for creationism backfired.
**** To put this in perspective, scientists have refused to debate creationists for years for a few reasons. First, it lends legitimacy to the idea that there even is a debate. Second, creationists often use dishonest debate tactics that can frustrate people who are unprepared for them while seeming legitimate to people who don't know better. Some people worried Nye would be tripped up by common creationist debate tactics designed to be repeated rapid-fire so an opponent doesn't have time to counter them all. The well-known script gave Nye plenty to study and work around.

* Bill Nye appeared on DancingWithTheStars. The ENTIRE THEATRE was giving him a standing ovation after his dance, all chanting "BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!" After almost 15 years, his fans still love and remember him!
** After every performance he made. ESPECIALLY after he was immobilized from a knee injury. The man was advised by his doctor to stop dancing but Bill freaking Nye decided to devise a knee brace that effectively rendered him a peg leg. Instead of letting that stop him, the man dressed up as a cyborg and incorporated that into his dance. He didn't win but, as previously mentioned, the audience reaction was HUGE.

*** Utterly '''''DESTROYING'''' Ham hard enough to get
other creationists were saying he won. He did it Creationists to say that Nye had won.
*** And also ''capsizing'' the myth that the story of Noah's Ark
