  1. Exciting – congrats to the photographers. Sounds like it was a great time. If I was 10 years younger, unmarried and childless I would have loved to be there 🙂

  2. Congrats to all contestants, especially those few lucky winners! Also, Jeffery Bergen enjoy your SteadyPod!

  3. Congratulations! Did so many people from South Africa particpate (would be logical since its cheaper for them without air fares etc.) or has South Africa so many hidden talents we should watch out for? 😉

  4. I missed this one, will there be a bootcamp for 2013?
    Congrats to all who made it.
