Ugh, so we have to listen to her screaming at the camera that much longer? I'll agree that she's probably the least objectionable contestant left, but I'd rather none of them win at this point.

Of course some shows may be broadcast at 480i on any of those channels if that's the source material. I suppose cable/satellite providers can alter the feeds and broadcast something else.
I get Hell's Kitchen and Master Chef at 720p OTA.

I'm LOL at some of Dana's comments in the confessional, or whatever they call it on HK.

[edit] Are You sure about Big Brother? I get it at 1080i, but in a 4:3 aspect ratio. Strange.

Justin actually did tell Robyn to put something in the oven, but I couldn't understand what it was that he told her. It wasn't to put everything in there like she was saying though.

Is Dana the screamy one? She reminds me of somebody from last season. Cannot stand screamy people.

I don't think Dana is the screamy one. That would probably be Robin, the woman who was moved to the blue team before getting her black coat. Dana just makes funny comments in the confessional.

Hells Kitchen is recorded in widescreen 480p. Just look at the picture and it should be obvious it's not in HD. There is no detail in the image like there is with HD shows.
The local stations broadcast everything in an HD resolution but that doesn't make source content HD.

The Hells Kitchen image is like in the early 2000s when Fox was dragging it's feet into the HD world and broadcast everything in widescreen 480P while the other networks had already gone to 720P and 1080i.

Oh yeah, Robyn is also kind of screamy but one of the women (not Barbie) on the red team does a lot of those interview shorts where she's always yelling something insipid. Sorry - I have trouble with names these days.

I like those. They are usually good for a laugh.

She's different in those clips than she is in the kitchen- thankfully.
Although any interview I've ever seen with any reality show contestant says that during the talking head spots there are assistant types egging them on to try and get snarkier footage.
There are not too many people worth rooting for on this season so I try and not pay too much attention to her in those clips- she's definitely over-reacting for the camera.

You are right, BB does say 1080i. And it is in 4:3.

Yeah - I'm almost surprised that Clemenza didn't make an even bigger fool of himself than he did!

Obviously the winner is determined in advance and the rest are kept around to keep things interesting. But I don't find Clemenza at all interesting and he certainly isn't going to win this thing. There wasn't nearly enough screen time of Dana in her bikini.

Anyone know how long filming takes for a season? A couple of weeks? Longer? Seems like sometimes there is a day between services and sometimes they are back to back.

Ugh. Clemenza needed to go, but Barbie screwed the pooch this week and should be thanking her lucky stars.

I am putting my stakes on Dana. She could be the black horse who could win the competition. There were times when she prepared cuisines that were pretty decent, still she has a long way to go. Maybe in the remaining competition, she could show how much good she is in cooking. Let’s wait and watch.

Justin seems to be the front runner at this point.

Yeah I'd bet on Justin. Robin no way. Christina is my darkhorse.

ITA. While I was abundantly, profoundly, giddy to see Clemenza outta there, I fully expected it to be Barbie based upon their performances.

Still doing the happy dance over Clemenza's departure. I could not STAND that guy.

Here's hoping that Barbie is next. Also agree with Bryhamm that they should have BOTH gotten the boot this wk.

Christina's hardly a dark horse IMO. I'd say it's a toss-up between her and Justin. I'd like an all-Jersey final between Dana and Justin, but I don't think Dana is strong enough. Her in a bikini was very strong though.
