    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
