It happened! For the second year running, local contestant and DJ about town Jake Rudh has made it to the semi-finals of AMC's "Mad Men" contest. Unfortunately, Jessa Alt - who had a good fighting chance until she was questionably eliminated, didn't get enough votes in her second attempt to make it into the Top 10.
Jake had this to say on his Facebook page: "If I could say thank you 14,448 times I would. It's in the hands of Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner now. I really can't thank the hundreds of you who voted everyday enough. To the rest of you, thank you for putting up with all of the posts. It really was a necessary evil, and I'm glad most of you saw it that way. I'...m going to go take a nap now...then have a cocktail and go celebrate with the wife. Thank you again!"
Congrats, Jake! Let's cross our fingers and hope the producers give him a shot!
