Worst Cooks in America

Premieres: Sunday, January 3rd at 10pm

Twelve of the worst cooks in the country attempt to transform from kitchen zeros into kitchen heroes in the new Food Network series Worst Cooks in America. Under the tutelage of premiere chefs, Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan, the "recruits" split into two teams and face a series of high-pressure challenges that test their newly-formed culinary skills. Each week the two teams get narrowed down until the final two recruits face off in the ultimate challenge: prepare a three-course, restaurant-quality meal for a panel of food critics that thinks the dishes have been prepared by chefs Anne and Beau. On the line are the chefs' professional reputations and $25,000 for the newly-crowned kitchen hero!
