Steve-O, Wozniak score low on ‘DWTS’

Injured contestants Steve-O and Steve Wozniak competed on Dancing with the Stars in Los Angeles Monday but racked up the night's lowest scores.

Former Jackass star Steve-O, who was nursing a back injury, earned 15 points doing a foxtrot Monday night, while Apple co-founder Wozniak garnered 10 points for what judge Bruno Tonioli described as the worst samba he'd ever seen, the New York Daily News said. Wozniak reportedly pulled a hamstring while rehearsing last week and fractured a foot two weeks ago.

Although Monday's scores landed the two amateur dancers in the U.S. television competition's bottom slots, fans can vote to save them and eliminate another competitor. The name of the next star booted is to be announced Tuesday night.

Monday's top performers were French actor Gilles Marini, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and reality TV personality Melissa Rycroft, all of whom earned 27 points apiece, the Daily News said.
