The Office: Shocked?

So the synopsis for next week's Office says:

Dwight and Jim are shocked when they get the results of the annual customer survey report.

I've been thinking about this for weeks.

Obviously, the "shocking" choice would be for Jim to be the winner. We know that in the past, Dwight has outsold Jim, and Jim of Season Two didn't really care that much about his job.

Or would the shocking choice be Dwight, because Jim's been putting in so much effort lately (since "Job Fair") and Dwight's been distracted since his breakup with Angela a year ago? Also, we know that Dwight outsells Jim, but wouldn't we think that customers probably like dealing with Jim better, because he's so charming and, you know, he's Jim?

Here's my bet. I bet the shocking part is that it's neither Dwight nor Jim, but rather Phyllis or Stanley. Oh, God, or Andy.

I bet this is another heartening-slash-depressing episodes in which we see that Jim wants to go beyond Dunder-Mifflin paper sales but can't because he's on a show called The Office. Le sigh.
