Tonight is the much anticipated finale of Worst Cooks In America on Food Network and Jenny and Rachel are both ready to rumble. It’s amazing to watch them try to fool a panel of food critics since just 10 days ago they were culinary disasters. Anne Burrell & Beau MacMillan start them off by helping them assemble their menus which consist of some of the meals they have already cooked with a few new twists.
They head off to the grocery store and cannot keep from bumping into one another as they try to get all their ingredients together. Rachel’s menu consists of her previously created pork dish, as well as the ravioli that she did so well and chocolate pudding for dessert. Jenny’s menu consists of the potato pancake that almost took her down in a previous challenge, as well her cod dish and chocolate molten cake for dessert.
As the pressure is mounting and time is running out on Worst Cooks In America on Food Network Rachel starts to get nervous and it worries Anne Burrell. Anne Burrell does not let Rachel know that she is nervous, however for fear that it will make Rachel crack. Beau MacMillan on the other hand is determined to get Jenny to speed it up as she is taking her sweet time, which is something they are short on at the moment.
As both teams seem to be moving along smoothly, Jenny is running out of time. She has to change her dessert recipe to accommodate the strawberries that she has no time to caramelize at the last minute. Rachel, who seems calm and collected manages to get her dishes done but at the very end burns her hazelnuts for her dessert. She & Anne Burrell decide to discard the ones that are very burnt and use the rest. Jenny pulls her molten cakes from the oven and as she assembling them, one of them cracks open leaving her no more room for errors. Luckily her last two plate perfectly as did the first one.
The food critics are now tasting the dishes on Worst Cooks In America on Food Network and they seem to find likes and dislikes with both competitors’ dishes. Anne Burrell & Beau then decide to surprise them and let them know that they did not cook the meals, but their Worst Cooks In America did in fact cook their meals. Shocked by this revelation, the food critics have a tough time deciding whom to crown as the winner.
After much debate back and forth on Worst Cooks In America on Food Network, the winner is revealed to be Rachel of Anne Burrell‘s red team! I was a bit surprised by this as I seemed to get the impression that the critics preferred Jenny’s dishes, guess I was wrong! Congratulations to Rachel for winning the competition and also to Jenny for coming in 2nd place!
