Steve Wozniak: 'Dancing with the Stars' was physically painful, but fun
By Christopher Rocchio, 04/01/2009
Steve Wozniak's body paid the price for his Dancing with the Stars participation, however the billionaire Apple co-founder feels it was worth it.
"I have two very serious injuries that almost took me out. But I had the most fun," said Wozniak during a Tuesday night Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance that followed his Dancing with the Starselimination.
"I'll never ever have an experience like that again."
Wozniak and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff and The Girls Next Door star Holly Madison and her partner Dmitry Chaplin were both booted from Dancing with the Stars' eighth season during last night's special live double-elimination results show broadcast on ABC.
"I love them both so dearly," said Wozniak about the couple. "I hope to be a big part of their life."
In addition, Wozniak also confirmed that he's accepted Smirnoff's recent request that he walk her down the aisle for her wedding.
"That means an awful lot when you meet somebody and you become that close in your friendship and your chemistry that they ask you such a thing," he told Kimmel. "That was a very, very, very important and significant thing to me."
Now that he's out of the competition, Wozniak said he's throwing his support behind former Jackass star Steven "Steve-O" Glover because both are cut from the same cloth.
"I like to root for the underdog -- and I was called an underdog -- so I'd say kind of like the one that doesn't fit into the whole category of the others," explained Wozniak. "Maybe he brings to the attention of people, 'Maybe I can dance and enjoy it.'"
