Posted Feb 9, 2009

What does Steve “Woz” Wozniak have in common with Lil’ Kim (rapper), Steve-O (Jackass fame), Nancy O’Dell (Access Hollywood fame), Lawrence Taylor (NFL), Shawn Johnson (Olympic gymnast), Chuck Wicks (country music artist), Gilles Marini (Sex and the City), Denise Richards (actress), Belinda Carlisle (The Go-Gos), David Alan Grier (actor), Ty Murray (rodeo cowboy), and Jewel (singer)?  They will all be dancing on national TV.

Co-founder of Apple, Woz is one of thirteen competitors who will have to train for different styles of dance in order to challenge fellow contestants.  Woz started Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976.  When Woz started Apple, he was employed by HP at the time.  They were designing the Apple II around then.  Woz will be the second technology leader to have participated on the show.  Mark Cuban, founder of Broadcast.com and Dallas Mavericks owner was one of the contestants in the 5th season of the show.  Cuban was eliminated from the show on October 23, 2007 when he was partnered with Kym Johnson.
