Worst Cooks in America on Food Network is back tonight as the final six become the final four. But when Anne Burrell and Robert Irvine give the remaining contestants a surprise, who will be able to overcome their worst food fear? Keep reading for all the details!
Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America kicks off tonight with a sausage making skill drill. Each one of the remaining contestants must make their own sausage from scratch after a demonstration by Anne and Robert. Some of them had more ease with it than others, such as Ty, who massively over salted his, and Kelsey who forgot to punch the tiny holes in it as needed – but would it come back to bite them? After they created their sausage, the final six would recreate an Italian dish using the sausage after another demonstration from Chef Anne and Chef Robert.
Ty, who was making Chef Robert’s German spaetzle topped with sausage and sauce, did not follow the recipe properly and had to start the spaetzle over once he realized he added four cups of broth instead of four tablespoons. Kelsey’s back luck also followed her into her cooking as her lack of holes in the sausage caused it to explode while she was cooking it. When Chef Robert tried Ty’s dish, he spit it out almost vomiting from the amount of salt Ty had used in the sausage. In the red kitchen things seemed to run a bit smoother, so that is one up on Chef Anne this week.
Then it was time for the main dish challenge on Worst Cooks In America and this week the final six would have tackle seafood to make it into the final four. On Chef Robert’s side, they were creating a sea bass dish while Chef Anne’s team was working on stuffed calamari. This time, it looked like the blue team was having an easier time as Chef Anne’s team, or particularly Kat and Joshie were having a hard time with the squid. As Kat was cleaning her squid, she was horrified to find a surprise inside of it – another fish that the squid had eaten.
But that was not all that the recruits would be working on to earn their spot in the final four, as they would also have to take on their greatest food fear. Each one of them had a secret side dish they would have to create to go along with their main dish, which was something they did not like. Georg, who was not a fan of figs would have to make a fig rice pilaf, while Ty was asked to create an okra dish. Both Kelsey and Carlos were asked to create a brussels sprout dish, one of Chef Anne’s recipe and one of Chef Robert’s. Joshie was making a cauliflower salad side dish, while Kat was stuck with her arch enemy eggs, in which she would have to create a poached egg with asparagus.
The sea bass did not seem as a big a problem as the squid did on the red team. Kat, completely forgot to wipe down her board and station and ended up with all the bitterness carrying over into her dish. Joshie wound up cutting his finger as he was making his side dish and did not notice the blood all over the bowl until Chef Anne told him and made him start over. After a quick pep talk, Joshie regrouped and got back to work. Sides seemed to the problem on the blue side as Georg struggled with the fig rice and Ty attempted to put a large amount of vegetables in a small pan. Chef Robert caught Ty and asked him if he thought the pan was big enough and he said he did….too bad Chef Robert did not think so.
When it was time for tasting and judging, on the red team Chef Anne awarded the win to Carlos who had the best stuffed calamari and side dish, while in a shocker, Kelsey had the perfect sea bass on the blue team winning the challenge for her as well. Then it was time for elimination and unfortunately Chef Anne decided that even though her eggs were poached perfectly, it was time to say goodbye to Kat. Meanwhile, on the blue side, due to his uncooked vegetables (which Chef Robert tried to get him to avoid) Ty would be saying goodbye this week as well. Best of luck to both Ty and Kat, and congratulations to the final four!
