Next Episode of Worst Cooks in America is
Season 13 / Episode 1 and airs on 16 April 2018 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.
Each team is given a scrambled recipe and the recruits have to work together to figure out the correct order and make the recipe. The Chefs tell the recruits they are being left alone in boot camp, but unbeknownst to them, Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence secretly watch their every move over CCTV. For the main dish challenge, the recruits learn the truth of sausage making. The tasting will be a potluck dinner, so the recruits must make sausages that impress both the Chefs and their fellow recruits or risk being eliminated.
The remaining recruits are put to the test by playing "Remote Control Chef," in which they must taste a dish put in front of them and describe it to Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence to recreate. For the main dish challenge the recruits tackle their most difficult task yet, making fresh pasta from scratch. The recruits have the guidance of two very special guests to help them with their cooking, Italian nonnas with years of pasta making experience. The top recruits earn a spot in the semi-finals next week.
The final four recruits learn the art of showing off as they compete to represent Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence in the finale. First, they learn some fancy bartending tricks and must make happy hour cocktails and bar snacks for Anne and Tyler. For the main dish challenge, Anne and Tyler have invited some very special guests to boot camp - the recruits' loved ones. The recruits are tasked with cooking a dish and performing a flashy tableside demonstration for their guests. After, Anne and Tyler decide which recruits will represent them in next week's finale for a chance to win $25,000.
The final two recruits face off in the ultimate challenge: cooking a three-course, restaurant quality meal for a panel of culinary experts. Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence coach their recruits from the sidelines, but it all comes down to the skills that the recruits have learned over the past ten weeks. Judges Paulette Goto, Jordan Andino and Michael Chernow taste the recruits' dishes in a blind taste test and determine the winner of the $25,000 prize.
The new cast of celebrity recruits arrive at Boot Camp, and Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence immediately hit them with their first challenge to cook their signature dishes so the chefs can assess their skills in the kitchen. Then the chefs teach the celebrities how to make a classic breakfast dish, and the lesson proves to be disastrous for the clueless cooks. After Anne and Tyler choose their teams, the celebrities are ready to officially start their culinary training.
Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence throw the celebrities into the deep end and start off the day with a fast-paced seafood tower relay game. After that, things get ugly when the recruits tackle monkfish and learn how to make fish and chips. The two celebrities with the worst dishes go head-to-head in an elimination challenge.
Boot Camp is transformed into Celebrity Game Night, and Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence watch their teams go head-to-head in the kitchen playing multiple rounds of celebrity-driven food games. The main challenge proves to be a tough one for the recruits when they have to make their own unique pizzas, including making the dough from scratch. The two least successful recruits face off in a bruschetta challenge, and one recruit is sent packing.
