Ariane answers our questions and doesn't hold back her feelings about her elimination.
Bravotv.com: What did you think the Quickfire was going to be when you saw Hung? Were you a fan of his on Season 3?
You know I had no idea what to expect. I do remember seeing all the canned ingredients and thinking what is going on??!!!
Bravotv.com: What made you pick Turkey Spam?
I thought of Gene. That is what he cooked in the house all the time!!

I thought of open face hot turkey sandwiches from the lunch cafeteria in catholic school. Had no idea. Never touched the stuff.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of the guest judge Dan Barber and the farm challenge in general?
I was very excited. He is an inspiration!! The farm was just breathtaking! I hope to work on the farm with him in the spring!! Ill start with some butchering lessons!! Ha!
Bravotv.com: Be honest, did anyone think they'd actually have to kill the animals themselves?
I am sure that went through a few chefs' minds. And I am sure some would have enjoyed it!Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to roll up the lamb?
I think Hosea and Leah were so afraid it wasn't going to cook in time. And that was what they had put in my head. Brainwashing I tell you!
