Season 22 / Episode 1 and airs on 26 April 2021 01:00
Chef Anne Burrell is back for a seventh season of trying to turn some of America's worst cooks into kitchen stars. This time, however, the recruits are seven celebrities who can showcase their talents on TV and in movies, but not no so much in the kitchen. Burrell competes against Worst Cooks in America newcomer Rachael Ray to see which chef can lead one contestant to make the most impressive culinary transformation. Actors Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White and Barry Williams join reality stars Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Chris Soules and Kendra Wilkinson in boot camp. The winning star gets $50,000 for charity and bragging rights for his or her mentor. Not all of the celebrities will make the cut, however; after an opening potluck dinner each mentor selects three recruits to be on her team, leaving one celebrity to be sent home before the competition really begins. Burrell is looking to extend her record to 5-2, while Ray looks to get the win in her first season.
The celebrities must make a dish inspired by food they've posted on their social media profiles; the mentors teach the celebrities how to make some lobster dishes, which proves to be disastrous for some of these clueless cooks.
Taste and describe game with the celebrity recruits; mentors demonstrate hors d'oeuvres, which their recruits must replicate exactly, as well as make their own; the two celebrities with the worst dishes go head-to-head in an elimination challenge.
Boot Camp is transformed into "Cafe Worst Cooks" as the celebrities learn how to make classic crepes. The main challenge proves to be a lot scarier for these novice cooks when they have to butcher whole chickens, grill them and create their own unique side dishes. The two least successful recruits go head-to-head in a chicken challenge, and one recruit is sent packing.
It's time for the celebrity recruits to tackle international food, so Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray test their knowledge of world cuisine by playing a fast-paced food game called "What in the World?!" Then, the recruits are forced to stretch their cooking boundaries by making their own hand-pulled noodles from scratch. The two celebrities with the worst dishes battle it out in an international-themed blind elimination challenge.
The celebrity recruits put their culinary knowledge to the test by playing "Family Food," a game of food trivia and culinary tasks. Unfortunately for the celebrities, it's the "freaky food" edition, so some of the rounds are not for the faint of heart! Afterwards, the recruits learn the art of beef butchering and the least successful recruits go head-to-head in a high "steaks" challenge.
The celebrity recruits finally tackle desserts, starting with a fast-paced assembly line challenge. Then, it's on to over-the-top milkshakes topped with decadent sweets. The two recruits with the worst desserts battle it out in a cupcake challenge.
As the competition nears its end, the oven mitts come off and the celebrities fight for a spot in the finale! They face their toughest challenge yet: a Worst Cooks battle inspired by Iron Chef called Tin Foil Chef. The celebrities with the best dishes head to the finale.
The final two recruits face the ultimate challenge -- cook a restaurant-quality meal for a panel of three culinary experts: Scott Conant, Aliya LeeKong and Marcus Samuelsson. Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray coach their recruits, but all the skills the celebs have learned are put to the test. In the end, one recruit will be named the winner and awarded $25,000 for their charity.
