Woz survives again on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Posted: 09:49 PM ET

Did the geek vote do it?

Steve Wozniak’s 10 out of a possible 30 from the judges Monday on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” gave him one of the worst scores in the show’s six seasons, but that didn’t matter when the results were announced Tuesday night.

As host Tom Bergeron announced that Wozniak and his dance partner Katarina Smirnoff were the fourth couple safe from elimination, Smirnoff let out a shocked, shrill and piercing scream as the Apple, Inc. co-founder appeared to mouth the words, “Oh my God.”

You could almost hear the collective sigh and mass cheer in Geekville.

Standings on the show are determined by a combination of 50 percent of the judges’ scores and 50 percent of the viewers’ votes, and “Woznation” has been in full effect as his fans have taken to social-networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to drum up support.

So despite Wozniak’s dismal performance - which one judge declared to be the worst Samba he had ever seen - the philanthropist survives to dance another week. And in a nod to the burly Woz’s attempt at the break-dance move “the worm” during his Monday night performance, host Bergeron quipped, “The worm has turned!”

After the stunning announcement that Wozniak and his partner were safe from the dreaded “dance off” round, the visibly surprised Silicon Valley icon said he was “more shocked than anytime in my life, except maybe when I got served with divorce papers.”

The great Woz seemed to acknowledge his many followers.

“It’s amazing what we can do, and I’m going to keep trying to entertain,” he told host Samantha Harris.
