A show by Food Network, the competition format series aims to transform people with pathetic culinary skills and turn them into professional chefs.

Cooking shows usually enjoy a large audience, and ‘Worst Cooks in America’, owing to its uniqueness, enjoys quite some popularity across audiences, both in America and abroad.

Worst Cooks in America Plot: What is it about?

‘Worst Cooks in America’ is a show all about food and cooking. Every season, there is a new batch of recruits who join. Each season, between 12-16 new contestants who claim to be the worst cooks in America take part in the show. They are put through an intense boot camp where they are taught various types of cooking techniques like baking, tempering, knife skills, preparations, seasoning, how to present and more. The goal of the TV show is to put these contestants to the test to see who comes out on top and wins – winners get an impressive prize money of $25,000. Along with the money they also get a Food Network cooking set.

In the show, the contestants are divided into two teams. Each week, one contestant must be eliminated from each team so that eventually each team has just one member standing. The last two contestants or finalists if you may, have to have a cook-off. Here, each finalist has to cook their own three-course meal which will be judged by critics who are experts in their culinary fields. The finalist who makes the best meal wins.

The winners also win bragging rights for their mentor. This cooking cum reality show proves how anyone from any walk of life can learn to cook, and not just cook, but cook well. It gives ordinary people a chance to demonstrate their as yet unexplored culinary inclinations and skills. The grueling competition puts the contestants to the test, and while some fail to deliver, others come out shining.

Season 15 of the show, which started airing on January 6, 2019, saw 15 contestants enter the fray to try and become a professional chef. Owing to the odd number of contestants, one was eliminated before the contestants were divided into teams. Over the course of the season, the contestants fought it out, and at the end of it all, stay-at-home mom Alisson Wolfe and model Brittany Carel emerged as the finalists. In the finale of Season 15 on March 3, 2019, Alisson beat Brittany to become the winner of the competition, taking home the prize money of $25,000.

As it stands, it indeed appears that ‘Worst Chefs in America’ is headed towards yet another season, and the selection of contestants is ongoing at this moment. Filming is slated to take place from mid March to late May 2019.

Overall, the reality show enjoys a decent rating of 6.4/10 on IMDb.
