Is Hell's Kitchen doing some creative editing?

Remember when Tek was voted off of Hell's Kitchen a few weeks ago? Then what the hell was she doing working in the kitchen on this week's episode?
This wasn't one of those deals where a former contestant comes back to help the remaining contestants for some reason, this was... odd. They didn't interview her or point her out and Ramsay didn't say "Tek, what the hell are you doing here, you donkey?! Didn't I kick you out? And how did you get your chef's jacket back? Jean-Philippe, what's going on?"
It was probably an editing mistake. I guess FOX wanted to show an example of Ramsay screaming at Amanda and the clip they had happened to have Tek in it. But I think it does point out that these "reality" shows are anything but, and editing plays a huge role in the production (and airing) of the show. Here's the clip.
