Worst Cooks, Episode 2: He Said, She Said

by in Shows, January 10th, 2011

Anne and Robert are happy to be on the farm...but not so excited to taste the recruits' omelets.

After each elimination on Worst Cooks in America this season, chefs Anne Burrell and Robert Irvine share their candid impressions of the booted recruits with the FN Dish. This week, they bid farewell to Jeff from Robert’s Team and Anthony from Anne’s Team.

Anthony started each challenge strong but always managed to crash and burn, says Chef Anne.

Anne on Anthony: He was totally a mama’s boy. But he talked a good game. He ran marathons; he’s an engineer; he’s a smart guy. He talked about really being passionate, but every time we would give him a challenge, he’d shoot strong out of the box and halfway through he’d crash and burn, get stuck, and never really finish. He said he would go over to his mom’s house every night for dinner and he didn’t have a girlfriend because of it. He said he’s the baby of the family; he never took responsibility for himself. It’s so amazing how people’s behavior in the kitchen really mirrors how they are in real life. And on the flipside, as you see their confidence grow in the kitchen, you see that sprouting to other parts of their life. It’s kind of cool when that transformation happens.

Jeff made a lasting impression on Chef Robert on day one, when he tore chicken with his hands.

Robert on Jeff: This is the guy that ripped the chicken with his hands. He was like survivor man. He thought he was good looking and all the chicks digged him. His station was always a mess. He’d touch things like chicken and then go on to do something else, wouldn’t even bother washing his hands. He did fancy himself a little. Zero cooking skills. He would finish his plates and then eat off the plate. He would taste it with his fingers that he hasn’t washed. I screamed at him one time, and he says, “I’m tasting my food.”

    I LOVE this show and I especially LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this season with CHEF IRVINE ;)
    I am a new mother and as soon as my son began eating table food, I realized I needed to learn how to cook and fast! To my dismay, it dawned on me that I am really no different than the recruits on this show. I enjoy watching it to get a laugh and I am learning new recepies and trying to create them myself as well! Eventhough I keep messing up the dishes somehow, my husband is being sweet and encouraging me to keep at it!!!

    I like the food Ann cooks but she irks me by tasting something and putting the spoon or fork back into the food she is tasting. Doesnt she know about spreading germs.

    i love this show also, but I cant believe that these people are so dumb about the food . How do they feed their families unless they call out everyday or eat frozen meals.
