Worst Cooks in America

The Food Network is putting a new spin on Next Food Network Star, this time calling it Worst Cooks in America. Twelve of the "most hopeless" cooks in America will compete for a prize of $25,000.
The five-week series will put the "recruits" through a culinary boot camp led by two acclaimed chefs: Anne Burrell, host of Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, and Beau MacMillan, executive chef at elements in Phoenix.

"Watching the Worst Cooks in America struggle to become great cooks, makes a show that is very funny, dramatic and moving," said Bob Tuschman, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production, Food Network. "Ultimately, it offers hope for even the most kitchen-challenged of our viewers."
The winner - or loser - will no doubt get his or her own show on the Food Network.

The show starts Sunday, January 3rd at 10pm (after Iron Chef America). Sounds like a potential trainwreck. Will you watch?
