"Worst Cooks in America"
Season Premiere Wednesday, August 23 at 9 PM ET/PT on Food Network
 
          Food icons Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray return to lead a star-studded culinary boot camp for cooking-challenged celebrities this summer with a new eight-episode season of “Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition.” Anne and Rachael each lead a team of recruits through the intense kitchen challenges, but only the most improved star wins a $25,000 grand prize for the charity of their choice and bragging rights for their team master.  The new celebrity recruits are: Nora Dunn, Carmen Electra, Erik Estrada, Vivica A. Fox, Perez Hilton, Carson Kressley, Sean Lowe and Melissa Peterman.

          In the first episode, Anne and Rachael kick things off with a social media-inspired challenge. The celebrities must make a dish inspired by their tastiest food snaps on social media and judging from their pages online, these stars love a good meal but clearly do not know how to cook one.  The mentors follow with a lobster lesson, which proves to be a disaster for some of these clueless cooks.  Anne and Rachael then choose their teams, and the culinary training begins. 
 
          Upcoming episodes feature international flavors, dessert-themed milkshake and cupcake challenges and the return of trivia game Family Food, this time with a “freaky food” twist.  The most-improved celebrity cook is awarded a $25,000 grand prize for the charity of their choice in the season finale.
