Worst Cooks in America returns with a new season on Monday, Feb. 17 at 9pm/8c. Chefs Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay are back again to coach 14 kitchen disasters, turning them (hopefully) into culinary successes with seven weeks of Boot Camp. Every week the recruits, who will be divided into two teams, have to face two grueling challenges that aren’t necessarily related to the kitchen — certain field trips will show these amateurs where their food comes from — and one member from each team will be sent home.
At the end of Boot Camp, the title of Best Worst Cook will go to the most-improved recruit, who will win $25,000 and earn his or her mentor highly coveted bragging rights. Last season, Bobby earned his first-ever win, facing off against formerly undefeated series champ, Anne. Watch the premiere on Monday, Feb. 17 at 9pm/8c to find out which mentor will win this season.
In the Season 5 premiere, Chefs Anne and Bobby greet the 14 new recruits in Boot Camp and immediately put them to work. Each contestant has to cook his or her “signature” dish, which Anne and Bobby will taste and critique. Then Anne and Bobby divide up the recruits to form teams before sending them off on their first high-stakes cooking challenge: to make a pizza. At the end of the cook-off, the dishes will be tasted by the mentors and the recruit with the least successful dish from each team will be sent home, leaving 12 to face off the following week.
