On Sunday, I watched yet another episode of Worst Cooks in America on Food Network. I am just so surprised that in just 5 weeks these cooks have evolved into “great cooks”. There has got to be some behind the scenes training going on. I have been cooking for over 10 years and even I don’t know everything there is to know, how can these people who can’t even make boxed mac and cheese go from zero to hero in just five weeks?
Sunday’s episode was about the last four recruits, two for Chef Bobby Flay and two for Chef Anne Burrell. Their mini challenge was to give instructions to the chefs to recreate a lamb chop dish. The role reversal might have gone to Chef Anne’s team (Rasheeda and Sue) a bit too much, however, watching Chef Anne’s reaction when the recruits told her to “wipe the plate to make it pretty” among other similar comments was priceless. In a way, Chef Anne thinks that she is above everyone else. Her reaction and attitude showed her true colors, it’s as if she was thinking “How can you talk to me like that, you’re just a home cook” kind of a way. I cannot stand arrogant people. Just because she is a celebrity chef doesn’t mean she can be disrespectful to others. I know this is a TV show, but still. In my opinion, Bobby Flay is genuine, and he knows how to push people. Chef Anne needs to eat some humble pie.
Do you watch the show? If so, what do you think of it?
