A good idea to add such "distractions" to a competition.
I you're used to meet hot girls all the time it wouldn't distract you much, but usually geeks don't have much chances to that, unless they live in Romania ) (or anywhere in Eastern Europe, for that matter).
btw @ Roco, you have a typo at "The Romainian winner".
I really hate show girls because they are distractions and they bring in too many people who cram the show floors just to take pictures of them. Often these people create a massive traffic that really hinder the enjoyment of appreciating the main content of the shows. SG should be banned, or just have their own SG shows. If I want to see girls, I will just go online and surf porn sites, or pay to see them.
That pic shows no evidence he was looking at girls. Even if he was maybe he only looked up for a second, maybe someone burst a balloon, which caught his attension. From the angle he could have just been talking to someone stood there.
There's no reason to give the poor guy a reputation or make assumptions about his private thoughts, just because he in not looking at his rig.
