Worst Cooks in America Season 24 Episode 01 Description
That’s So ’90s: The Fresh Chefs of Boot Camp
Chef Anne Burrell and co-host Jeff Mauro welcome a fresh batch of celebrity recruits to culinary boot camp, hoping to take these ’90s stars from culinary duds to all that and a bag of chips in the kitchen. In order to choose their teams, the chefs need the 411 on what these recruits can and can’t do in the kitchen, so Anne and Jeff ask the celebrities to cook a potluck dish. For the main dish challenge, the recruits have to make elevated versions of classic TV dinners, and the chefs decide which dishes deserve to be syndicated and which recruits should be cancelled from the competition.
