For the first time in Worst Cooks in America Boot Camp, the chefs and recruits will be swapping roles in the kitchen this Sunday. Anne and Bobby will take their contestants’ places for a challenge that has them cooking against the clock, but of course the recruits are the ones who are in for the true test of the Skill Drill. With their mentors out of sight, they must communicate with the chefs via headset as they work in teams to describe the visual and flavor profiles of a dish only they can see and taste. While it’s the hope that the competitors’ abilities to discern cooking techniques and ingredients are strong enough for their mentors to re-create the dish successfully, the contestants were learning new practices just one week ago, so some of their directions may indeed get lost in translation.
In the sneak-peek shot from Sunday’s brand-new episode, Chef Anne is prepping ingredients as she’s being fed culinary intelligence from Rasheeda and Sue. It’s up to her to trust in what they’re saying about the dish and attempt to prepare the same meal with only her team’s descriptions in mind. How do you think Chefs Anne and Bobby will react to taking requests from their recruits? Are the contestants able to work effectively as teams, or will this challenge backfire on the chefs? Which team, the Red or Blue, will ultimately score a win just one week before the finale?
Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to find out who makes the better dish, we’re challenging you, Worst Cooks in America fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.
