I'm with you, Ilja. I'm also surprised to be rootin for Z and Val. She's quite the entertainer and seems mature beyond her years. I'm also shocked at how well I like Val. I really like Maks and I must admit, I never felt that Val could hold a candle to him in sex appeal or looks-wise. Strangely, I find I like his personality much more than Maks'. He has a strongwork ethic and a discipline that I really admire.
All the finalists are talented and I know there are many who feel that Kellie will run away with it, but I'm crossing my fingers for Z!
