Food Network Casting Call for “Worst Cook”

Worst Cook Try Outs, Chicago

The food network has what seems like dozens of shows with great cooks and great food. What comes next? The Worst Cook Show. The Food Network is now casting people who are completely incompetent in the kitchen and extremely foul cooks to be on “Worst Cook in America 2”, a very different cooking competition.

Are you a hopeless home cook? Or is someone you know totally incompetent in the kitchen?

Food Network is looking for the most disastrous home cooks in Chicago to participate in a very different culinary competition show!

This is the opportunity of a lifetime—to work with the best chefs in the country and learn to cook like a professional. Seeking people with a genuine inability to cook, but a need and desire to improve!

• Has your wife told you it was probably better if you ordered take out?
• At the big potluck dinner, are you always asked to “just bring the napkins?”

• Is someone you know constantly offering you food that you have to turn down?
• If you know a dad/mom who can’t scramble an egg, a colleague who can’t convince anyone to try their culinary creations, or a guy friend who tries but can’t seem to get it together in the kitchen, this is your chance to get them the help you BOTH need!

    Hi worst cooks of america, I have an aunt and her name is Kelly. She is such a terrible cook that she can’t even make hot dogs. They taste salty and under cooked, she also can’t even make pancakes without burning them. She needs help and I want to reach out to you guys to help her cook better. I’m tired of having to go out to dinner, it’s really sad.

    Hi, I have a sister that is absolutely hopeless when it comes to cooking. I was wondering how old you have to be to audition for the show. She needs this because she just dances around the kitchen adding random spices to food. PLEASE HELP HER!!!!!
