    Tom Colicchio saved the life of fellow foodie Joan Nathan during the "Art.Food.Hope Benefit" in Washington D.C. on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

    As he was being cornered by avid fans of the show who were protesting Ariane's elimination, he heard a scream for help from across the room. He performed the Heimlich maneuver on Joan, who was choking on a piece of chicken.

    Don't know if anyone really cares about this story, but I figured I'd post it here anyway - just an interesting fact about our friend Tom. Here's the link to the TVGUIDE story:
