In an AMA, the real Bill Nye said the following to the battle: "Love it. That's Weird Al himself Newtonising… and they're imitating me. I mean that's as immitationally flattering as it gets. I admit though, I'm not sure why I would be battling Isaac Newton rather than sitting down to share an apple and some peanut butter."
This makes him the eighth person confirmed to know about their battle.
In the podcast Control Guns Abortion, Peter confirms that Neil deGrasse Tyson had indeed seen his battle and had even offered to rap had they given him a call.
This makes him the ninth person confirmed to know about their battle.
