If you have someone you want to see added, I want to see them with my own eyes or have an official link source, so please point me to a part of the broadcast so that I can try to find it online. Like "They mention/show so-and-so between rounds 1 and 2." I'll try and find it and if I do, I'll add it. I will likely not be good with pointing out celebrities in non-English speaking countries but I'll do my best.
