    My Tivo recorded one 2 hour block of HK Monday and one 2 hour block of MC on Tuesday. I don't have repeats activated so I assume Tivo saw them as one new episode as opposed to 2 reruns.

    I really don't like Becky but I think it's hers to lose.

    Yes but repeats that my Tivo seems to think are new I guess because they are 2 hour repeats.

    Descriptions in the guide data indicate repeats even though they are listed as "new".

    Both HK and MC are repeats this week - Fox does not want to put new episodes up against the Olympics.

    Note that the schedule changes starting next week:
    Monday - Hotel Hell followed by HK
    Tuesday - repeat of the previous MC (except for a "bonus" Hotel Hell on 8/13) followed by a new MC

    I really don't like Frank. What a dooshy move to first say that you would let Joshua go upstairs only to renege and send himself up to be saved.

    Seeing them eat the steaks was making me hungry. I love a good steak.

    Interesting that Ramsey pushes for perfection in the way the steaks are cooked, and yet the ones from his Steakhouse in Vegas were dreadful. I ordered medium-well and the steak came so raw it was literally bleeding on the plate. Ugh.

    I felt bad for Frank.
    It would be lunacy not to save yourself.

    He did acknowledge that Joshua didn't deserve to have to do the pressure test in theory, but in a balls to the wall competition you have to look out for yourself if winning is your primary objective.
    Earlier this season we saw Gordon chiding someone for taking the high road in exactly the same situation and putting themselves in unnecessary jeopardy.
    Kind of a lose/lose scenario.

    They put Frank in a tough spot by first asking him hypothetically who he would save, then offering it in reality. Josh shouldn't have expected any other result, he would have done the same.

    Yeah, I'm not blaming Frank for doing it - saving yourself is the smartest thing to do.

    I'm just thinking he should've said that when they asked him the first time.

    "Hypothetically I am the nice guy. Push comes to shove, suck it bitches!". Can't say I am sorry to see the back of David, but this is still Becky's to lose.

    What? ;)

    While it would be 'nice' if Frank stuck to his original thought of saving Josh it would have been a bonehead move to actually save someone other than yourself. Everyone knows that and its just more Drama for TV. They probably told Josh to look mean and keep looking up at the balcony during the challenge. :p

    Agree that Frank did what anybody with a brain would have done. After all, it IS a competition. Of course, Ramsay did it the way he did just to up the drama, but then we all know that already.

    I also agree with Kevin - Josh would have done the same. Of course he would. He's no dummy.

    Glad Josh didn't get the ax. Have been wanting to see David gone for a while now, so yay on that.

    They are down to some really good cooks. I like Frank and I think he and Becky are the best so a head to head with those two in the finale would be very good. I'll be very disappointed if either one of them loses before they get to that point.

    David didn't really "lose" anyways. Graham wants him working at one of his restaurants in Chicago.

    As an aspiring chef, I'd much rather "win" that than the actual final prize.

    It seems like, every season, one of the judges chooses one of the cooktestants to offer a job, so even that is formulaic. Anyway, of all of those choices, I don't think I'd have chosen David but then what do I know. :D

    Probably only picked David do to his geographic location of Chicago. :D Since that is where Graham has a restaurant.
