The very first week on Worst Cooks In America on Food Network Anne Burrell was not impressed with Lina Yu’s chicken dish and it wound up ending Lina’s stay at boot camp. In a post elimination interview, Lina Yu blames her timing issues for her elimination and inability to complete her dish in it’s entirety. Keep reading for more details on what Lina had to say!
Food Network’s Worst Cooks In America fans watched the first week as hopeful recruit Lina Yu was one the first eliminated contestants on the show. Lina, in a post elimination interview blamed the timing for her elimination as she said “If I could do-over the challenge I would have been more aware of the time on the clock because at the end of the day I think that is what got me eliminated. I took too long trying to get things perfect and then it was too late when I found out my plating dish was missing. I would have grabbed everything I needed before I started cooking.”
Lina Yu, who has learned the importance of prepping her food and kitchen before starting to cook, goes on to reveal that she was pretty sure she was going home after that challenge as she tells Food Network “When I presented my dish I felt that since it was incomplete there would be no way that I would make it through. Chef Anne wasnâ€™t able to accurately critique me since one of the key ingredients of the dish was missing, which was the sauce. Thatâ€™s half of the dish right there! I felt pretty upset that it was the timing and not the actual cooking, I feel, that got me eliminated.” Lina goes on to tell her fans that she will continue to practice at home and better her skills.
