Di Marie has got more talent than most of those I have been listening to over the past three weeks...what's up people???? I can NOT believe that she isn't higher in the standings!!!! Please tell me that more than a computer based poll is being used to evaluate the performances...Di Marie ROCKS!!!! She should WIN!!!!

I would like to thank the judges, Dick, Cathy, and Tommy for volunteering so much of their time to work on this project. Let's remember that while we spectators can sit back and leisurely enjoy the evenings, they HAVE to be week in and out to make their contribution.

Doug Dore deserves a pat on the back as well. He is perfectly suited to be the emcee'.

OJ -- Thanks for capturing the videos and posting them on the web not only for folks onsite, but for family and friends out-of-town.

Finally, to the contestants, thank you for making this a summer to remember.

Please And It was one of my family that said they toughtthat it was rigged because they have been voting every day since back in the very begining of this thing and they said that they think that I should have at lest 10% of the vote because they have alos asked freinds of your family to check out the site and to watch the shows too. that's all I was stating.

Ok here goes I for one do think that this whole thing bout OJ just posting his finger pointing at Geno is a bit much Yes I do think that Geno has made some bad judgement calls but that's just his opionn as well as ours OJ but to come right out and say that he's the only one to think that it's rigged come now just look at some of what was said about the person who got 13 votes and was not even at the show that week but anyway the votes were there and I don't think that's very fair that you don't say anything about that but you just singled out Geno now everyone can see just how Geno and his opinons get treated. Well heres one for everyone that reads these posted comments it's not been posted by Geno nor his friends as of till now I'm saying this What about the way they was calling him the names that was being called and that one week when he wore a shirt that yes you can see thur and they made some pretty frank comments bout that but did Geno whine or anything of the such no he let that go until it really started to get to him then he said what he had to say and now him and those who come with him get treated as though they where not there.They come in spend about 12.00 pre pichter of beer and 5.00 for apichter of pop. 2.00 a glass of pop and they usally spend about no less than 30.00. but they are treated really bad. And then OJ you got the nerve to only point your finger at Geno. Yes this does get my goat and you even went as far as to say that you have no intrest in the contestants then why is it that you put their video's on youtube and on your site as well and these poeple are getting air play and all but are they getting anything else.NO but yet Geno's said something about this and his fliming and you said you got the rights to them well I think that's got some others a little po'd. and with that I'll Close.
Agree? or Disagree?
