I agree with most of the comments in here. Bobby and Stevie were foregone conclusions, Becky and Paul were a bit of a surprise, we thought David and Heather were the other toastees.
Our top 3 guys are Ace, Chris, and Elliot (with Tucker as the dark horse) and top 3 women are Katharine, Lisa, and Paris (with Ayla is the dark horse).
My favorite is Katharine because that girl can *sing* but Paris seems earmarked for winning. My daughters melted at Ace's last smoldering look (which I gave them enormous amounts of crap about).
Some people go out surprisingly early, some last longer than what you think (Kevin will), but evetually, the American public seems to get it right. It's all a hoot and stupid mindless fun anyhow. Fun to talk about, but ultimately, who cares?
Although Kelly Clarkson has crossed over to a bona-fide star and now Carrie Underwood seems on her way.
