Worst Cooks in America: Worst Cooks Warriors / 12 Jan 2022 Food Network

Worst Cooks Warriors:

The recruits find boot camp transformed into a gladiator-style arena. Chefs Anne Burrell and Cliff Crooks explain that to be a successful chef, the recruits need stamina, speed and a developed palate. For the skill drill challenge, the recruits learn how to make a falafel platter fit for a culinary titan, and in the main dish challenge, they’re tasked with making flavor-packed chicken adobo. Anne and Cliff judge all the dishes, and the battle is over for one recruit.

Chef Anne Burrell is back for a seventh season of trying to turn some of America’s worst cooks into kitchen stars. This time, however, the recruits are seven celebrities who can showcase their talents on TV and in movies, but not no so much in the kitchen. Burrell competes against Worst Cooks in America newcomer Rachael Ray to see which chef can lead one contestant to make the most impressive culinary transformation. Actors Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White and Barry Williams join reality stars Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Chris Soules and Kendra Wilkinson in boot camp. The winning star gets $50,000 for charity and bragging rights for his or her mentor. Not all of the celebrities will make the cut, however; after an opening potluck dinner each mentor selects three recruits to be on her team, leaving one celebrity to be sent home before the competition really begins. Burrell is looking to extend her record to 5-2, while Ray looks to get the win in her first season.
