Aaron reminded me of the Cowardly Lion. He should have been cut last week, which exposes the weakness of Hell's Kitchen in relation to Top Chef and Next Food Network Star: having the contestants nominate who gets cut. This adds an element of "strategery", like Rock putting up Josh instead of Aaron, which has nothing to do with who is the best chef.
BTW, Rock putting up Josh KILLED the blue team, dividing them and leaving the hapless Aaron (poor guy, had no business being there. Almost felt like he was used by the producers) to distract them again. Bad move.
And pulling the pasta from the trash- reminded of the Seinfeld episode when George eats the eclair from the trash.
Jerry, "Was it in the trash?"
Jerry, "Then it was trash."
But at least she did the right thing and put herself up to be cut. Have to respect that.
