wow, tough match-ups. Congrats to all that made the Elite-8! I can't believe I even got in :eek:

Good lucks to all. Everyone had wonderful videos and I sure bet it was difficult for the staff to choose. Btw, how many videos in total were there?

Ok heres a little info on this.

this tournament style showdown was suggested by dnewton. We thought it was an awesome idea since there were so many great entries. Let's keep this fair. No cheating and vote for whos vid you honestly think is better.

Don't forget we have a 2nd place prize as well. As for those who aren't in the finals we'll figure out something to get you guys just for entering. We truly appreciate everyone who participated. Thank you!

Finally for the people who didn't enter this time, no worries, we have another giveaway coming up right around the bend!

You know on those reality TV shows how they suddenly add somebody's tattooed dad onto the island? Or the contestants find out they now must eat a giant spider instead of going hot tubbing with the Hooters girls? Or "she" turns out to be a "he"? Well, tonights shocking one-up-ante makes this FAR more interesting. Good luck to everybody. I've cast my vote, but somehow I wish I could yell at Simon Cowell right now.

Wow, awesome idea! Gives everyone a bit more fair chance. :)
Thanks for putting mine in the Lucky8. :D

I put my vote in. Good luck to everyone!~



Oh and question, is there a way to hide the poll results until you've actually voted? Just in my opinion, it sways a person's vote to the higher of the two sometimes when they see the choice with the highest votes just because everyone else is voting for them, but that's just what I've noticed on other polls before. ><;;

Oh and btw, I love the graphics you guys did on the video! I love old style video game character selections (esp. Street Fighter) haha I've tried to do some before but failed. >.>;;

I actually had a feeling that there would be a vote in the end, i would do it to because all those videos = hard to decide. But it isn't really that far apart when you think about it.. and its good that you don't see either of them making 100 accounts to put the votes up LOLOLOL - don't get ideas..

Thats just not the UU way... :)

Well no matter the income this has been an awesome experience :)

DOOOD! You gotsta check out the St. Augustine, FL episode of Ghost Hunters! It was by far THE BEST!! (Made me a believer - and I'm a skeptic BIG TIME!) LOL Its available on YouTube!

My friend Camille and I visited the St. Augustine Light House (where the episode takes place) - unfortunately we could only go during the day. But it was still pretty freaky! LOL One of the batteries in my Nikon Speedlight Flash exploded! :eek:
