Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Unfortunately Akshat was ill and could not present today, so this made life easier for our judges - they didn't have to choose two finalists to save! Also, thanks to Ember Crooks who made a special effort to join us as a guest judge. I was personally in awe of some of today's presentations! I can assure you that I will be watching this replay to try some of the things that I learned!! Our judges were all impressed!
