What was the the first challenge and who won?

    Chopping up a chicken correctly. The girls won and got a trip to a restaurant (the name escapes me.... Saddle something) where apparently the crying asian cowboy from last season is working now.

        That was Aaron. I believe the narrator mentions that Aaron was a frequent customer.

        Also, was it ever verfied that Aaron faked the whole illness and was just hamming it up on the show?

          Although Fox is not repeating the previous week's Hell's Kitchen the way they did in past years (that is putting last week's show on at 8pm and the new episode on at 9pm), I did find that Fox's cable Reality Channel is reshowing the previous week's Hell's Kitchen episodes on Sundays at either 7 and 10pm or 8 and 11pm depending where you live.

              A friend of mine works with a guy who is still a contestant on the show, so I've been watching a little more avidly than usual. I love the post-show interviews with the kicked off contestants that come online on Wedesday.
