    I think of all the people ever cast on DWTS, Steve is the biggest headscratcher. I'm glad Kym and Edyta didn't get stuck with him, but I'm surprised Karina did.

    This is certainly a head scratcher, now isn't it?

    That's why I didn't comment on it earlier. Just didn't know what to say.

    It's interesting that they've got someone who's been far more influential on society overall than any "celeb" they've had, from a job completely outside of celebrity circles, and yet likely only known to celeb loving viewers via his earlier appearances on Reality TV.

    Doesn't everyone hate Karina? This way she'll be out fast.

    But who knows: maybe he secretly has been doing ballroom dance all these years. Stranger things have happened. He's of an age bracket in which many people went to dancing school in junior high.

    I would imagine that most computer literate people know that Steve Wozniak is the co-inventer of Apple Computer. I knew his name long before reality tv became popular. I certainly did not know he was ever on a reality show before this one.

    Of course, I have no idea as to wether he can dance; my first inclination would be think he cannot.

    He had some reality TV exposure last year when he was (platonic) dating Kathy Griffin, and appeared on her Bravo show. She seems to have brought him out of his shell.
