Well, it's kind of hard to get any closer than 3 or 4 rows from the stage when you get in there after the First to the Barrier people, and they've packed themselves solid into 3 or 4 rows. I HATE people who show up later and then try to push through people to get closer. It is about the rudest thing in the entire world.
If I had to guess, I'd say the average amphitheater with a GA pit holds about 1,000 people. The FTTB compeitition would normally draw about 50-100ish names, so +1 guest, you're looking at about 100-200 people in before you, if you're at the front of the line without winning the contest.
