"I was shocked to see that," Elena admitted about the moment when Chef Johnathan decided to make the eggs in advance. "Like, what is the thought process? Please explain this to me. Because even if breakfast is at 8:30, you need to wait for the guests to wake up before you make eggs, surely."

Aesha wasn't aware that the chef had done that until she watched the show back. 

"I had no idea," the New Zealander admitted. "That's the first time I saw that."

"Mortifying," Elena added. 

Aesha Scott reacts to the wake-the-chef dilemma

While Captain Sandy Yawn didn't believe that Elena should have woken Chef Johnathan up to cook snacks for the guests, Aesha felt like her stew was right. 

Aesha first noted that she felt badly for Elena when she watched the stew debate whether to knock on Chef Johnathan's cabin door or not. 

"I really, really felt for her when I watched it back, and seeing her standing there voice quivering, hands kind of shaking, how stressed she was about to knock on the door," Aesha said. "It just broke my heart, and I wish that she came and woke me up."

The interior team leader felt like Elena had the right to knock on the door because Chef Johnathan hadn't prepped any late-night food in advance. 

"It said in the preference sheet that the guests want late-night snacks," the chief stew added. "If he forgot to prepare them before he went to bed, he should have gotten up and made them."
