Well, I totally forgot about the finals of LSC2 and only caught the last 5 minutes, basically just in time to see Jay say, "Jons your Last Comic Standing, Goodnight!" Granted I called Gary, but I also said Jon could pull an upset and take it.
Why? He cried. When he beat bonnie, he was clearly devastated, not elated. That bought a lot of sympathy points from the home viewer. Then he told off the coalition and gained more points. Coupled with his genuine talent and "cuteness", he got it. Last year Dat cried talking about his impovershed upbringing and he got it as well.
Sure, there were a few more tears shed on the show. Tammy cried because her dad had a heart attack or indigestion or something. Ant cried cause he almost got his ass kicked on national tv. But both their tear points were nullified by their scheming and back stabbing.
So to the contestants of LSC3 and beyond. Cry. Cry well, and don't backstab and you could win it all. Sigh......sob.
