Hitting the dance floor March 9 in the two-hour season premiere of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars will be none other than Apple Computer founding engineer and Segway polo team member Steve Wozniak.

His bio from the show’s press release:

A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for the past three decades, Steve Wozniak, a.k.a. “The Woz,” helped shape the computer industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II, and influenced the popular Macintosh. After leaving Apple Computer Inc. in 1985, he was involved in various business and philanthropic ventures, focusing primarily on computer capabilities in schools and stressing hands-on learning and encouraging creativity for students. In 2000 Steve was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment. He is also a published author with the release in 2006 of his New York Times best-selling autobiography, “iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon.”

The other contestants: Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, country singer Chuck Wicks, model/actor Gilles Marini, Denise Richards, ’80s pop star Belinda Carlisle, rodeo star Ty Murray (who might surprise you), singer Jewel, comedian David Alan Grier, rapper Lil Kim, Lawrence Taylor (token football player who always seems to make it to the final few), Jackass star Steve-O, and Access Hollywood correspondent Nancy O’Dell.
