Next Episode of Worst Cooks in America is
Season 27 / Episode 1 and airs on 08 January 2024 01:00
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.
It's halfway through the competition, and it's time to turn up the heat! Anne Burrell and Jeff Mauro start by having teams compete in a game called The Inferno Zone, where recruits must taste spicy ribs, find ingredient balls hidden in a hot tub and play catch with their Velcro suits! Then, the recruits create their own spicy wontons before Anne and Jeff teach their teams how to make spice-rubbed steaks and sides. The recruits with the most successful dishes live another week in boot camp, but the ones who can't take the heat are sent home.
Boot camp transforms into a Parisian patisserie, and the singles learn they'll be making desserts in a fast-paced game called Dessert Dash. Recruit pairs taste and recreate pastries by wheeling their "bistro mobiles" to different stations in the middle of boot camp. Desserts continue in the Skill Drill challenge when Anne and Jeff task their teams with making their own flavored profiteroles. The training wheels come off for the Main Dish challenge as the recruits cook a romantic dinner for two on their own. While some recruits manage to sweep their chefs off their feet, those with the worst dishes are eliminated before the second date.
Chefs Anne Burrell and Jeff Mauro are fresh from a wild night of partying as boot camp transforms into the Las Vegas strip, and the teams play a game where they must piece together clues to retrace the chefs' steps and locate a missing dish. After recreating the dish without a recipe, the singles learn how to make a showstopping fish dish that focuses on plating and presentation. The winning streak continues for some recruits, but the buck stops here for the ones with the worst dishes.
It's down to the final four recruits, so Anne Burrell and Jeff Mauro test all their skills by challenging them to create a composed dish using ingredients in specially curated meal kits. The two recruits with the best dishes continue on to the final cook. Later, Anne and Jeff teach their recruits a three-course, restaurant-quality meal, and the finalists must put all their newfound skills to work in order to impress a panel of culinary experts, despite a huge twist thrown at them by a surprise special guest. Judges Chris Scott, Christian Petroni and Hawa Hassan taste the recruits' dishes in a blind taste test and determine the winner of the $25,000 prize.
In the supersized premiere, a fresh group of recruits enter culinary boot camp – and these competitors are spoiled with a capital ‘S.' Accustomed to dining out and delivery apps, these sixteen recruits have never successfully cooked a meal in their lives. Anne and Tiffany are ready to transform these coddled kitchen novices into competent home cooks, but first they need to see what they are working with. To give them a firsthand look at their cooking skills or lack thereof, the recruits must recreate their favorite takeout dish. For the main dish cook, the competitors must replicate Anne and Tiffany's take on a steak and potato dinner. Then teams are selected, and the two least successful recruits are sent home.
