Worst Cooks in America - A new cooking show

Just read in my local paper about this new show starting Sunday, Jan. 3rd on the Food Network. It's called the "Worst Cooks in America" featuring Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan. The author of the article in my newspaper is a well known food critic in these parts so I value his opinion. He said he was fully prepared to hate this show, but ended up calling it "captivating, sweet, funny and inspirational". The cooks on it truly are terrible cooks and they are taught very basic skills. There is also a contest aspect to it. Don't know about you but I just TIVO'd it! Should be fun watching it.

I've watching the commercial for it for weeks. It does look like it could be fun!

Should be interesting to watch adults fumbling around in the kitchen. :)
Growing up in Canada in the 80`s, there was a show that aired called "Just Like Mom", which showed kids attempting to cook a meal with their moms. Let`s just say that the final result of the meal was a big mess.

I can definitely see the same results here with these contestants, albeit with them being a few decades older than those kids from the 80`s show. Should be fun to watch.

that show is lower than low. if the hosts owned self-worth of thier own, they probably wouldn't be picking on kitch feebs.

I haven't seen the show, but, it's not the hosts that have picked these people...it's their friends. I do believe, in the end, they'll realize cooking isn't so hard...I think anyway.
