'Dancing with the Stars' producer doesn't see Wozniak making finals


By Christopher Rocchio, 03/30/2009 

Dancing with the Stars executive producer Conrad Green feels Steve Wozniak is a long shot to compete in the show's eighth-season finale.

"Technically, he's getting better," Green told USA Today in a Sunday report. "But I'd be surprised if he were around [for the finals]."

It's been a long, strange Dancing with the Stars journey for the billionaire Apple co-founder -- who suffered two injuries in the span of a few weeks, first being diagnosed with a foot fracture and more recently pulling his hamstring.

Conrad claims Wozniak subsequently rejected advice to drop-out of the competition due to the injuries.

"I admire his fighting spirit," Green told USA Today about Wozniak.

In addition, Wozniak also previously sent an email to his Facebook support group in which he accused Dancing with the Stars' producers of potentially manipulating home viewer voting results to attract more viewers -- allegations he subsequently retracted and apologized for.

If that weren't enough, Wozniak and professional partner Karina Smirnoff received the lowest marks from the judges last week -- and the lowest score in six seasons -- yet were still able to stave off elimination and continue in the competition.

"There are times he's dancing when I shake my head," judge Carrie Ann Inaba told USA Today. "But you see his pure joy and childlike innocence. I love his courage. I just hope he doesn't hurt himself."

Regardless of how far he actually makes it in the competition, Wozniak is apparently pleased with the experience he's had so far.

"I can think of incredible experiences in my life, but nothing compares to this," he told USA Today. "When I wake up in the morning, I just want to dance."
