What we know about the cast of Worst Cooks In America Season 23

Anne Burrell with red team members on Worst Cooks in America

Fans of Food Network’s “Worst Cooks In America” were totally down with the addition of chef Michael Symon as the leader of the blue team, according to Cheat Sheet, which noted fans had taken to Reddit to rave about their love for 2008’s Next Iron Chef on “Worst Cooks.”

“I adore Michael Symon. He seems really well-suited to the show and is definitely someone I’d want to learn from,” said one. “He seems like he would be a lot of fun to just hang out and grab a beer with,” remarked another. Perhaps most importantly, Symon was seen as a “much needed breath of fresh air” for the show’s 22nd season. We feel it’s safe to say that Anne Burrell will remain the one and only leader of the red team. But will Symon be Burrell’s foil as blue team leader for Season 23? Food Network hasn’t made the announcement, but one thing is certain: if Food Network wants to please the crowd, then we have to speculate that Symon will be back with a vengeance!

As for the rag-tag band of not-quite-hopeless home cooks? Perhaps you? Here’s how to get cast on “Worst Cooks in America.”

What we know about the premise of Worst Cooks In America Season 23

In its 10 years on Food Network, “Worst Cooks in America” has delivered 22 seasons worth of pathos crossed with hilarity — because who among us can’t relate to being the kitchen version of the proverbial deer in the headlights at times? Even celebrity chefs can feel a bit out of their element when you drop them into an unfamiliar situation. Take, for example, that time long ago when chef Alex Guarnaschelli, who has served as both judge and mentor on “Worst Cooks In America,” found herself in the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado, trying — fruitlessly — to get her potatoes to boil (which, as Chef Alex told Mashed, is surprisingly difficult due to Denver’s high altitude). Of course, the same is true for non-chef celebrities who have, at times, made up the cast of “Worst Cook” recruits.

The question is what will be the premise of “Worst Cooks In America” Season 23? Last season’s all-star season gave us a look into what former successful recruits have learned since their time on the show, so it seems unlikely that Season 23 will involve another set of “all-stars.” It could be another celebrity season, since the last “Celebrity Edition” aired more than a year ago in 2020.

Should Worst Cooks In America fans be concerned that information on Season 23 is sparse?

Even though Season 22 of “Worst Cooks In America” was a tremendous hit with viewers, whetting their appetite for, at the very least, more of chef Michael Symon as blue team leader, there has nevertheless been what can only be described as a severe and somewhat frustrating shortage of information about the beloved show’s next season. So what to make of all the deafening silence from Food Network, Burrell, Symon, and anyone else who might be expected to know what’s what?

Given that “Worst Cooks In America” has been such a sensation over the decade-plus it’s been on the air, and how much America appears to love watching Burrell, celebrity guest hosts and judges, and members of the culinary pantheon interact with hapless-but-ambitious home cooks, we think it’s safe to speculate that this particular vehicle will continue its journey. Sure, awaiting official news of the next season of “Worst Cooks In America” may have us all on the edge of our seats. However, we have a very good feeling that Season 23 will be well worth the wait. Meanwhile, here is how you can re-watch every hilarious moment of past “Worst Cooks” seasons.
