  30. dizzyb says:

    Fantastic! Congratulations!

  31. orv says:

    I knowww! I meant to thank everyone on SC, but the contestants were under the impression that we were going to be interviewed and that was going to be aired on TV. NOT that we were going to be on stage live in front of 50,000 + people and 600,000 people watching. It was NERVE racking!!! I forgot everything I wanted to say…
