    Ryan Stackman is 23 years old, just out of college and never won anything before--but he's now our third weekly winner for the contest and has won $10,000--and qualified for the finals.

His family and girlfriend share in both feelings.  (FYI--see Ryan interviewed today at 1:30 pm EST on "Power Lunch.")
