The shows on Food Network are not always about cooking and baking. It is about learning skills and cooking competitions. I sometimes like to watch shows with kitchen challenges like the Food Network Worst Cooks in America because it is a competition series that transforms kitchen disasters into skilled cooks.
I think turning anyone that either feels like they are a disaster in the kitchen or taking someone who is a hazard to have in the kitchen and transforming the person to be a skilled cook or chef is super awesome. The five-time winner Chef Anne Burrell will be returning for a rematch against Chef Tyler Florence, when the show premiers on Sunday, January 3rd at 9pm ET/PT. In this seven episode series Anne's team goes against Tyler's team in an intense kitchen boot camp designed to improve the food skills of their recruits.
The contestant who makes the most impressive culinary transformation is awarded a $25,000 grand prize, in addition to delivering victory and bragging rights for their team leader. Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Food Network says, "Worst Cooks is comical, competitive and ultimately, inspiring. Under Anne and Tyler's guidance, these cooking-challenged contenders transform their hilarious kitchen blunders to refined culinary techniques and the journey is truly entertaining to watch."
On the first episode, Anne and Tyler are confronted with some of the worst cooks they've ever seen during an open casting call. They chose fourteen recruits including a lunch lady, truck driver, Army veteran and special education teacher to send to boot camp. Each contestant whips up the “offending dish” that landed them in hot water. After a stomach-wrenching tasting, Anne and Tyler pick their teams and attempt to teach them to make a well-balanced meal. I think this awesome because these people are learning a life skill!
During the show two recruits that are not up to the task are sent home. Upcoming episodes feature a game show style battle called “Family Food,” internationally flavored empanada and Asian street food challenges and a visit from the competitors’ loved ones. The season culminates in a finale on Sunday, February 14th at 9pm ET/PT where the most improved recruit is awarded $25,000 and bragging rights for their mentor.
