No thread for this season yet?
Bobby Flay is hilarious in this.
Alina (sp?) is the front runner for Bobby's team. Not sure on Ann's team yet.
I like the show, but I just don't buy it
how can anybody be that stupid ?
if you know you're going on the show wouldn't you watch a few episodes Alton Brown or Giada De Laurentiis or even Chopped ?
wouldn't you look through a cook book and learn about food ?
in the preview for next week they show
one of the cooks making gelato with saffron and basil and ginger !
it's one thing for your technique to not be perfect, it's another thing to not be able to tell onion from fennel
just visit a supermarket a week before you're supposed to go on the show and look around
familiarize yourself with food
I guess that is why it's called "worst cooks"
So - is this the season thread with spoilers?
Just in case -
I really wanted that Big Mike guy to stay and that woman who keeps slobbering all over Flay gone. But I knew, from the dishes they made, he would get the ax anyway. There are some interesting contestants and some really boring ones. Seems like Bobby F likes that whackadoodle attention but I hope that lady doesn't stay long. She doesn't seem destined to but I guess they love the drama for the show.
I enjoy this show because it makes me feel better about my skills, lol. I agree though that it's hard to believe people can be that stupid...but I come from a family of cooks.
That said, if they really ARE that bad, then the dishes they complete are actually quite impressive as I think I'd even have some issues...I've never broken down a chicken, filleted a fish, pan-fried a steak, or made polenta.
Sadly, I do not find it difficult to believe these people. My mother and grandmother had a horror of cooking and passed on to me. Growing up and while I was living on my own I never ate a single thing that wasn't pre-prepared unless it was fruit or something. Fortunately my husband was a restaurant guy when I met him, and my dad's family owned a restaurant, so as an adult I've learned to cook. I still feel like those people in the show every time I enter a kitchen though.
I know it's a TV show and they want drama but I'd like to actually see them teach some basic stuff first like knife skills, food/equipment ID, and kitchen prep. Worst case it could even be the pre-episode selection--narrowing 50 down to 20 or whatever. Sort of like (IIRC) Master Chef did with peeling and chopping onions.
