Culinary shows have been a staple for tv since forever – more specifically the early 60s, and with time, the ever-expanding march of the culinary shows have only meshed well into other genres, especially reality game shows in particular.
‘Worst Cooks in America’, which aired first in February 2010, is one of those culinary game shows that has progressed to become a mainstay for Food Network. In the years hence, and over a course of 18 seasons, ‘Worst Cooks in America’ has had five celebrity editions. Now the question is: when will ‘Worst Cooks in America’ season 19 premiere? Read on.
Worst Cooks in America Season 19 Release Date
‘Worst Cooks in America’ season 18 premiered on January 5, 2020, on Food Network. It consisted of eight episodes and ended its run on March 8, 2020.
Almost immediately thereafter, the channel renewed the show for its 19th iteration. ‘Worst Cooks in America’ Season 19 aka ‘Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition’ Season 6 premiered on May 10, 2020, at 9 pm ET. It consists of seven episodes.
Worst Cooks in America Season 19 Cast: Hosts, Judges, and Contestants
As far as the judges go, Anne Burrell, an instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, has been the ever-present consistent host and judge. The show has a tendency to swap things around when it comes to the second judge, with Alton Brown taking on the mantle in season 18. In season 19, Tyler Florence replaces Brown and joins Burrel on the judging panel.
In the 18th edition, we met 16 new recruits, with Shannon Akins being declared as the winner in the finale. The 19th season, which happens to be the sixth installment from the Celebrity Edition, features seven contestants. They are Wells Adams (‘Bachelor in Paradise’), Johnny Bananas (‘The Challenge’), Dave Coulier (‘Full House’), Bridget Everett (comedian and actress), Robin Givens (actress), Sonja Morgan (‘The Real Housewives of New York City’), and Brian Posehn (comedian and actor).
What is Worst Cooks in America Season 19 About?
‘Worst Cooks in America’ follows a fairly basic two-round elimination system, and there is one elimination every episode. This also necessarily means the number of selected contestants determines the number of episodes in the season. As part of the contest, recruits are required to master various cooking techniques which include skills with knives, temperature maintenance, baking, seasoning, and cooking. Their ability to cook a quality three-course meal, which is judged by food critics, decides their fate. Season 7 introduced the Celebrity Edition, which follows the usual format, crowning a ‘Worst of The Best’ at the end.
Season 19 brings in the sixth iteration of the Celebrity Edition. Seven alums from tv and movies battle it out over a span of seven weeks to make it to the top. In the finale, one of them will earn the grand cash prize alongside a Food Network cooking set.
