“Worst Cooks in America"
Season Premiere Sunday, January 6 at 9 PM ET/PT on Food Network
          Chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence each take on a team of hopeless home cooks and try to transform them from kitchen zeros into kitchen heroes. The "recruits" go on a personal journey as they face a series of high-pressure culinary challenges and attempt to triumph over their inability to cook. At the end of each episode, one recruit from each team must be eliminated. 

          The two who make it to the end will face the final challenge: to prepare a three-course restaurant-quality meal for a panel of food critics. At stake for the chefs: their professional reputations. At stake for the recruits: $25,000, and the right to say that they are no longer one of the Worst Cooks in America.

          In The Perfect Bird episode, fifteen of the worst cooks in America enter boot camp with dreams of putting their kitchen nightmares behind them. Chefs Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence want to see what they're dealing with so they begin by asking the recruits to make their signature dishes -- a request with truly disastrous consequences! After being sorted into teams, the recruits must flock together like birds of a feather to make the perfect chicken dish. The recruits whose dishes don't fly will be sent home.
