I too was bawling like a baby during last night's show. I figured Najai would lose, considering it was the week they were going to make a tribute to him. Watching him interact with his precious daughter had me in tears. I think contributing towards a fund for her is a good thing - just because Najai committed suicide, doesn't mean his daughter is not deserving of a good future. I'm particularly sensitive to this topic because my uncle took his life a couple of years ago, and it's a very painful thing. But, like Phat said, the family should not be at fault for it because they're hurting too.
I feel bad for Jeff. What a bad break - to get chicken pox at a time like that. I hope he's doing well, even without this show.
The thing with this show is that they make these guys so dang likeable (with the exception of Ahmed, who thank God is not back). So this makes it hard to root for one guy when they're fighting. I like Sergio a lot too - he was the one who was sooo thankful for the suit, wasn't he? He really takes this to heart. So far, I'm REALLY liking the contenders who are in the final eight, and it's going to be hard to pick a favorite.
