One show that I didn't think I'd like, but ended up loving is Worst Cooks in America on the Food network channel. It's a competition show where people all across America who can hardly manage to toast bread compete to be able to cook for a panel of food critics for a twenty five thousand dollar prize. There are sixteen contestants that are split up into two separate teams. One team is lead by Chef Anne Burrell while the other team is lead by Chef Robert Irvine. After having the contestants cook a simple dish and tasting it, each chef interchangeably picks a contestant for the other chef's team. Once the two teams are established, a meal is cooked each week with the worst cook being eliminated by the chef each week. When only one person from each team remains, the contestants go to a real restaurant's kitchen in order to prepare some of their chef's signature dishes for three food critics in order to try to fool them into thinking that it was made by the chef's themselves.
I've managed to watch both seasons on satellite TV that I got after I saw some of these direct tv receiver deals and I really enjoy the underdog angle that each contestant has in their effort to become better cooks. One of the nicer moments is when they have the families stop by for a taste test and they can't believe that the dishes were made by the same people they know.
