    First of all, thank you for letting me participate in this Spicy Cooking Challenge. I had a great time coming up with different dishes, throwing a little heat into them & presenting it all to you. This was a lot of fun, and a little crazy, from filming to editing, to getting the video up. Just to let you know, all of the videos were all done by our crew of one, Crazy Steve. It gave me the challenge to watch food show episodes, see how they are shot, and come up with angles of my own. It has given me the challenge to continue shooting these recipes and uploading them to our cooking site, http://www.CookingWithCrazySteve.com . I wish I was going to the next round, but it was not meant to be.
    Good Luck to both Shauna & Chris. It has been close these past rounds, and each of us has put the heat on to come up with some creative spicy dishes.
    I want to thank Buddah for the invite, and thank all the judges for your time, and evaluation of all the challenges. Also Thank you to the sponsors for your generous donations to make this event what it is.
    I would love to do this again, and maybe create our own Spicy Cooking challenge with Buddah!

    Overall everyone did a very good job – and I want to thank all the sponsors, contestants and Buddah/ILIS for letting me and Gunther’s Gourmet be a part of Round Six.

    Steve, loved your video, style and food but rules are rules and I think being late was your downfall.

    Chris – congrats on the win and congrats to Shauna on making it to the finals – look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
