Im very happy and will be rooting for the lady pictured above, Miss Carla Hall. They would've been crazy to not have her. Let's go Carla!!

I'm kindof upset that more people from Season 2 weren't included. My favorites Sam and Ilan I think would have been a great addition. Otherwise, looks like a decent lot of past contestants.
