    Steve "Woz" Wozniak Interview:
    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 Stars elimination.

    "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.

    The elimination presumably caused Wozniak's body to breathe a sigh of relief -- as the 58-year-old suffered two injuries in the span of a few weeks, first being diagnosed with a foot fracture and more recently pulling his hamstring.

    "You have so much fun you'll drive your body as hard as it can go," Wozniak told Kimmel, describing how he injured his hamstring.

    "I was doing a difficult lift -- and Lawrence Taylor actually did it in his [routine] on the show Monday night -- and it tore my hamstring. I've never had that happen before."

    Wozniak added that the injury caused him so much pain that he was uncertain he'd be able to perform during Monday night's performance episode.

    "I didn't think we could do it," he said. "But we went down to the stage and we re-choreographed around it."

    While he may have missed out on claiming the coveted mirror ball trophy, Wozniak did gain what he considers a life-long friend in the form of Smirnoff, who is engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

    "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.'"
