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.
Chef Anne Burrell and Chef Tyler Florence are back in boot camp to whip seven of the worst celebrity cooks in America into culinary shape. But before the chefs can pick their teams, they want to see what skills -- or lack of skills -- they're working with. For the baseline challenge, the recruits are tasked with making their go-to dish for a dinner party. After the recruits are split into teams, the chefs show them how to cure those dinner party dish-asters with a delicious boozy brunch that they must replicate in order to stay in the competition.
The celebrity recruits enter boot camp to see chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence sporting fabulous derby hats! In honor of the Triple Crown, the recruits enter a race of their own to test how well they can identify and put together flavors on a crostini. For the main dish challenge, the chefs show the recruits how to make a fancy steak dinner worthy of any celebrity table. The least-successful recruits face a blind elimination challenge where the "steaks" have never been higher.
The celebrity recruits enter boot camp to find it transformed into a nautical oasis equipped with fish tanks and a live mermaid! For their skill drill challenge, the recruits dive into the world of seafood by solving a recipe riddle to make ceviche. For the main dish challenge, chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence show them how to butcher their own fish and make the classic fish en papillote. The recruits have to replicate their chef's fish but also create their own vegetable side dish. The two recruits that sink to the bottom enter the blind elimination challenge and attempt to cook their way into another week of boot camp.
The roles are reversed in boot camp as the celebrity recruits and chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence play the fan-favorite game, Remote-Control Chef. In the game, the recruits instruct their chef on how to make a dish that they cannot see, taste or touch. For the main dish challenge, Anne and Tyler teach the recruits how to make homemade ravioli. The recruits put their own flavor riff on their ravioli, and the bottom two are sent to the blind elimination challenge.
The final four celebrity recruits enter boot camp to find a sweet surprise! To kick things off, they play a dessert scramble game before they're tasked with making their own sweet parfaits. Then, things get competitive for the main dish challenge as chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence challenge the final two recruits on each team to cook head-to-head to earn their spot in the finale. Each team is given an ingredient to use in a composed meal. The two recruits with the best dishes move onto the finale while the bottom two recruits say a bittersweet goodbye to boot camp.
The two final celebrity recruits are greeted by former celebrity recruit and referee for their final skill drill challenge, Carson Kressley! The recruits team up with their chefs in a recipe relay race where they work together to make steak fajitas. Then chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence break off to teach their recruits their menus for the three-course, restaurant-quality final challenge meal. Judges Dan Churchill, Jeff Mauro and Grace Mitchell blindly taste each course and pick the winner of $25,000 for their chosen charity.
