Season 7 of Worst Cooks in America is a little bit more star-studded, as seven recruits from Tinseltown are joining the ranks of the culinarily challenged. Like in previous seasons, the recruits will be split into teams, but this time their coaches will be Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray. For one of these stars, getting through all six weeks of trying challenges will mean $50,000 for his or her charity and bragging rights for the star’s mentor.
It’s not every single guy’s or girl’s luck to appear on TV’s The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but for Chris Soules, it has been twice. With humble beginnings growing up on a farm in Iowa, Chris was unknowingly entered into the reality-romance show by his sisters. Considering his degree from Iowa State University in agronomy and agriculture, you would never have imagined this farmer would end up in Hollywood, but that’s what happened. Chris also competed on the hit show Dancing with the Stars, landing in fifth place. Now back home on the farm and working in the family business, Chris is ready for the next chapter in his life.
Although Chris didn’t find lasting love on TV, he’s ready to learn some cooking skills so he can reel in and keep the next catch he finds. Watch the premiere of Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9|8c.
