Bill Nye is a close second, if only for teaching us about why hydrogen explodes.

It's September, so that means it's time to start announcing reality show contestants. Wednesday's entry was the next round of Dancing With the Stars hopefuls. As usual, some we recognize easily, some not so much.

The whole passel of them went on Good Morning America so ABC could continue this mystifyingly popular competition: former Bucs wider receiver Keyshawn Johnson; Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from Jersey Shore; Saved by the Bell and Showgirls alumna Elizabeth Berkley; King of Queens actress and Scientology refugee Leah Remini; Rhoda actress Valerie Harper; Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty; singer Christina Milian, High School Musical's Corbin Bleu; Glee's Amber Riley; Comedian Bill Engvall; Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack Osbourne; and believe it or not, Bill Nye the Science Guy.

That's actually a really good mix of people we can actually place off the top of our head, which probably says more about our ever-advancing age than it does the quality of the competitors. Keyshawn is the favorite by default, however, even if he didn't live up to those big contract numbers until we traded him to the Dallas Cowboys. Jon Gruden may disagree, but Super Bowl rings make us sentimental that way.
