I am real proud of Jen and her commitment to keeping her standards in spite of the environment around her. Even if she doesn't win the competition, I feel she is a winner of the best kind. Good luck to her!

I only saw the last four episodes, I watched the final last night. Jen is great, she always seemed to be taking the higher road. It is a shame that she ended up third because of the one gal cheating and doing dirty tricks. Ashely has great talent, it is a shame that she has such a foul mouth. Jen, you played honestly and you conducted yourself with dignity, you are the real winner here. Thanks for your inspiring example.


She was my favorite by the last half of the contest. And I thought she should have been in the finals over Gretal-Ann. It would have been a much closer finale. That girl can pipe! Way to go Jen.

Our obsession with Mormons on TV is downright weird. Do you think this means a person has finally made it? They've finally arrived?

For Pete's sake, give it a rest.

Good job, Jen! I'm an evangelical, former LDS and I never tire of hearing good things about Mormons. I do not share the theology, but I am proud of my pioneer heritage and the standards with which I was raised.

I do see MapleDon's point when it becomes obsessively annoying. But this was an entirely positive and on-point article. No need to disparage its importance in what could have been a deal-breaker for a religious, non-drinking or non-gambling person.

I just texted my San Jose friends to patronize Jen's business because of her ethics!
