I love a good Super Bowl commercial, and even more so, I love a good Super Bowl commercial that highlights something or someone I once loved as a child. One such person is Bill Nye the Science Guy, who I would dutifully watch after school everyday. Together, we learned about plate tectonics and ionic bonds, and in seeing Bill Nye’s new Super Bowl ad for Persil, I wondered — who is Bill Nye dating? Hey, it's been a long time since I've seen him. Just wanna know what he's up to.
According to Today, Nye got hitched to Mozart In The Jungle author and musician Blair Tindall in 2006, the first marriage for them both. Unfortunately, the two split soon after, according to CBS News, and it turns out they were never actually legally married, according to Nye. Strange? Yes. Unbelievable? Not really. We live in a strange world, and relationships ebb and flow all the time.
Since then, I couldn’t find any exact information about Nye’s romantic relationships. He doesn’t post anything about his personal life on his social media channels — it’s all about him being, you know, a real scientist. Lately, Nye has focused his efforts on spreading information about climate change and other environmental matters in the face of Donald Trump's potential policies on environmental issues.
Nye tweets a lot about science in general, turning concepts that are big and scary and making them into something digestible.
That’s not to say that Nye isn’t having any fun — he recently walked in his first runway fashion show (he’s so dapper, with all of those bowties). His Super Bowl commercial showed him exploring different dimensions of cleaning clothes, so maybe that's what he's working on now. Every dimension could use a Bill Nye, even if there are 10 of them.
