Worst Cooks In America: TV Series Reviewed

Have you ever wondered how a meal which seems so easy to make can sometimes go oh so wrong? As in what was I thinking? Did I use sugar instead of salt? Was that a cup or cup and a half of flour?

Been there. But thankfully, only occasionally.

If you need a little laughter in the kitchen then the television show the Worst Cooks In America is for you. (Laughing with the contestants at their culinary journey.)

Worst Cooks Competition

The Worst Cooks In America is an elimination competition cooking show in which contestants are separated into two teams. The teams are captained by well known chefs Anne Burrell and Alex Guarnaschelli this season.

Each show has a culinary  theme where the captains guide their team by teaching the contestants how to make a specific meal. The captains coach their team members along the way while the team members learn the ins and outs of cooking ... hopefully.

The first episode of the season features the contestants making their go-to meal from real life. A little scary, very interesting and very creative are some of these dishes. Some dishes combine ingredients that are just. so. not. edible!

A Sense Of Humor

Laughter and humor are also a theme throughout the show as contestants are good humored and the audience is rooting for them to succeed! Contestants are eliminated at the end of each show and they try so hard! As we home cooks know, some days are better than others and cooking can be an inexact endeavor some days for us novices.

Celebrity Worst Cooks

Every so often the show runs a celebrity season and there is always plenty of mirth and mayhem. It is quite amusing to watch celebrities out of their entertainment element and enter the show as the main character.

As the celebrity contestants are already camera friendly their cooking or lack of cooking skills shine through along with their entertaining personalities.

Where To Find Worst Cooks In America?

  1. Ha - I have seen one or two episodes of this show. It takes me back to my newly-married days when I suddenly realized I could NOT cook - that all my cooking experience growing up had been as a prep cook, STARTING things for dinner from telephoned instructions from parents before they left work. I had my own trial of 'worst cook' in my own kitchen, making several inedible mistakes so funny they became funny party stories over the years - like my 'Potholder Soup'. Luckily my new hubby DID know how to cook or he would have starved waiting for me to learn. LOL. So, I really FEEL for the contestants on the 'Worst Cooks in America' TV show. :)

    1. Nothing like Potholder Soup for the party classic ! :) Been there...!

  2. I was wondering about this series. I'm not really into that much TV watching, but if something is funny and I need a break, this just might be the show to tune into. Thanks for the review.

  3. I've been watching Worst Cooks since its first season! Anne Burrell is a hoot. It used to be more focused on the actual cooking education, which I preferred, whereas for the past several seasons it seems to be all about the humor. But I still get a kick out of it.

    1. Now that I have watched quite a few seasons, I can see where the first seasons where a bit more educational, either way, it is amusing :)

  4. I never thought this show would appeal to me, based on the title. However, after reading your review, I now consider it a must see. I love a reality show that makes me laugh. I really appreciate this review. Thank you for the recommendation.

  5. I love the cooking shows on the Food Network. Although I've not ever watched this one. Based on your review I must now tune in. Thanks Tracey!

    1. I definitely think you would enjoy this series Sam, especially when they attempt to make homemade pasta (you could send a few pointers their way from your family recipes!)

  6. I am not a good cook. This sounds like a show I'd love to watch (but probably should appear on! haha)

  7. Lol, I need to watch this series. I've seen it advertised but haven't watched an episode yet. I've seen the worst driver shows - they're hilarious!

  8. Haven't seen the worst drivers, but it sounds in my lane for laughs this year!
