I agree with ya'll as well. The natural talent Chris had coming from no formal training or experience, he was able to pick up on the weapons handed to him and adapt and overcome. Well done.
Or maybe it's because this is coming from another IT geek like Chris as well. I along with plenty of others probably thought he wouldn't make it past the first few rounds because of his background, but I was rooting for him, being the underdog and fellow IT gun enthusiast, since the beginning.
