TC contestant Eli used to work for Richard Blais?

i just happened to catch a repeat of the 2006 ICA Battle Chickpea between Blais & Batali, and Eli is one of Blais' sous chefs! am i just late to the party on this one? did anyone else know Eli used to work for Blais? i know they're both from Atlanta, but their cooking styles just seem so different. Eli hasn't given any indication whatsoever that he's at all familiar with molecular gastronomy...
