But can anything match last week's river of tears from auf'd contestant and perpetual sad puppy dog Michael Costello? Perhaps he can find a new career as a Kleenex spokesman. The oddson favorite to win tonight is the humble, likable, and occasionally moody Mondo Guerra. He also seems capable of being the first PR winner in several seasons that anyone will be capable of remembering after the finale (where have you gone Irina Shabayeva and Seth Aaron Henderson?).

If this video does not prompt you tap your foot and grin with delight, it's probably time to pay attention to those antidepressant advertisements on television.
