The third season of Food Network's Worst Cooks in America kicked off on Sunday. The contestants on this reality cooking show are self-described awful cooks who want to improve their kitchen skills.
Two-time champion Anne Burrell once again leads a team of eight "recruits" through kitchen boot camp. Joining her this year is Bobby Flay who also has a team of eight. Each week one recruit from each team will be eliminated until just one recruit remains on each team. Those final two recruits will prepare a gourmet meal for judges. Based on those meals, the judges will declare one recruit the winner -- most improved cook -- of the season.
The show is fun to watch if you like picking up some basic cooking tips and if you like seeing a "nice" reality show. I love watching the contestants improve each week and start really paying attention to what they're eating and how food is prepared. I think we can all learn to pay better attention to what we're putting in our mouths and why we're making the food choices that we're making.
The show airs Sundays at 9 p.m. Repeats are shown at various times through the week.
