The Host Saves
It was a really hard decision to narrow my host save down to one choice. I'm sure the burning in the pit of my stomach last night was the result, because this choice is crushing. I love all my picks and would take you all if it was possible.
I went over which were likely to get requests, which could easiest revise, which got a lot of votes in their round, which probably will do fine on their own, and what agents are looking for. I considered voice and concept. I spent hours thinking about his decision and it didn't get any easier.
With great humility and apologies to the rest, my host save is:
No Such Thing as Coincidence
Congrats everyone!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see you all at the agent round!
