Top Chef's Ariane on Iron Chef America?

Did anyone else catch Ariane from this season's Top Chef acting as Amanda Freitag's sous chef on the new "Battle King Crab" episode of Iron Chef America that aired this Sunday?

I thought reality show contestants were supposed to lay low until the season's winner was announced. I mean, she was obviously booted weeks ago and it was no surprise, but I thought it was a little weird. I also found it kind of funny that she was butchering meat, which is what she got booted for on Top Chef.
