What I meant was I have DishNetwork which has an NBC channel and a separate HDNBC channel. I was recording it on the HDNBC channel (It's worked every other week) whether it was actually in HD or not. The recording only showed a blank screen for the entire recording. I was wondering if it was an issue with my DVR or the channel.

Every time someone cries, take a drink. Every time there's a product placement take another drink. You'll be done within the first hour.

From the time they first came to the ranch.

Just voted for Mark. Something about Roger just bugs the hell out of me.

I'd really like to see Ali win it all, but the poor girl will probably have to get down to 115 pounds or something.

Yeah, voting for Mark is the only way to make sure a woman wins this.

Roger has more weight to lose. Plus he's been an ass.

Mark was looking a little too skinny. I was surprised at the big number by everyone. Kelly and Roger still have the most to lose before the finale.

It seems the Australia week threw everybody's systems out of wack, and this week their bodies readjusted. I hope Mark gets in the finale, as well. His attitude has always seemed more about confidence, where Roger just comes off as cocky.

Roger just seems nicer....

Mark comes off like a douche from before but maybe he will get some sympathy from the women because of all his crying

That's pretty much my opinion too. Roger really seems like he's being "real" and is a good guy. OTOH, Mark seems to be an AH who is constantly using people and trying to manipulate the game.

I really hope that Ali wins, but I'm voting for keeping Roger. If Ali can't pull it off, I'll be *much* happier with Roger winning than Mark.

Well I voted for Mark because I think it will help either Kelly or Ali the most if its him rather than Roger. Don't really like Mark and it was hard with him being such a cry-bag but I think its the best for Ali or Kelly.

Earlier in the game I would have agreed, but I thought he became kind of a jerk around the time the blue team started picking off the black team one by one. He (and Dan) just seemed so cocky and arrogant about it, while Mark seems to have mellowed out a bit after returning, keeping his competitiveness but not gloating as much about it.

Basically if Mark is in the final 3, Ali will win. If Roger is in the final 3, it will be closer.

Ali had the highest percentage (which the winner is judged on) of weight loss at the end of the episode.

She'll have to get down to about 115 to probably ice a win against Roger.

I'd like to see Kelly come from behind and somehow pull this one out, but I won't be upset if Ali wins it...she's won me over these past few weeks...I used to hate her! I can't vote, but I'd definitely vote for Mark if I was allowed to (dang NBC not letting Canada vote!)

I voted for Mark for the final 3 but after the show has concluded, he really needs to seek some help to overcome the emotional issues that have made him constantly cry during the final month of the show

Talk about a change.

I figured the winner would have more loose skin that they'd know what to do with.

But congrats to the winner!

(How's that for keeping my response gender free. )

Yeah Brittany looked pretty damn hot... I think she probably has a little lose skin around the tummy and that probably makes her look a little bigger. Congrats to Ali, she did a great job.
