Worst Cooks in America Season 24 Episode 05 Description
That’s So ’90s: Baking Me Crazy
The celebs find boot camp transformed into a colorful, retro diner, and chefs Anne Burrell and Jeff Mauro challenge them to tackle diner favorites like burgers, fries and milkshakes. First, the recruits must determine the flavors in various milkshakes and then retrieve those flavors in a gigantic bowl of sprinkles. Then, the celebs have to make a loaded burger and fries in a fast-paced, tag-team cooking relay. The main dish challenge is stuffed with flavor when Anne and Jeff teach the recruits how to make fruit-filled pastry pockets. Some recruits successfully embrace the sweeter side of boot camp while the bottom two recruits compete in the blind elimination challenge and one is eliminated.
