Lol I just checked the group's blog to see if the result is out but I see, it's not yet. xD Like you, I do want to see the winners as well(not expecting one of those to be me, but it's nice to see a contest having proper closure) I hope whatever it is though, that nothing bad happened to the host. ^^"
