David Campbell's was one of the best in terms of construction of a video and showing he trained for Sasuke. It's not the prettiest or flashiest and his voice goes monotone for most of it.. but he did prove he studied the course!

I have a sneaky suspicion David Campbell won. Call it a hunch, but I have a reason for this.
At the beginning of the week, which would have been the 23th-24th, I was in contact with him about a couple things, and he wrote me back a couple times, one of which being my abillty to measure all of the obsticles and get almost exact measurements. I told him if he won to get in touch with me and I'd get him accurate demintions of anything he wanted to help him train. I also informed him that its almost 99% confirmed that there is a ladder in the final stage, I thought i'd tell him this since he did'nt include that in his video. On the morning of 2/24 he sent me a message telling me that he was going to start to work on his ladder climbing, thats when I told him to contact me about the measurements if/when he won. Since then, he has not said anything, which could possibly mean, he knows he's going, but cannot talk about it until its "official." Also his board activity since 2/24 has been way up on G4.
I wouldn't have a problem with David going at all. He doesn't seem like an artard and quite frankly it shows he's a fan of the show. I much prefer people who not only WATCH the show but are fans of it. I wish him well if it is him. I just hate the G4 process is all. Fair warning.. dude better not call this SA SU KE.. whoever it is that ends up being Olivia's boy toy.

Sasuke. Better yet, Sauce-Cay.
At least they tried when they decided to air Kinniku in America, they ended up pronouncing it Unbeatable Bahn-zooo-kay, this over pronunciation of the "zu" pisses me off Just say it, Banzuke, and presto.
I've only seen a few of the entries, but David Campbell's really impressed me. Brett Sims also has trained hard and Jake Hilton's vid was great, too. It's a tough decision no doubt- one that should not be made by Olivia. It's just too bad that guys like Rick S, Joe S, Ruselis and others who probably deserved to go will never get a chance. I also hope we get to see Mark Witmer back some day- I still think he would do very well.
