Worst Cooks in America on Food Network bid farewell to Carlos and Kelsey this week as the the finalists were revealed. After the show, both Anne Burrell and Robert Irvine shared their thoughts on their exiting recruits. Keep reading for all the details!
Worst Cooks in America Anne Burrell was sure that Carlos was going to be the guy representing her for a while. She went on to tell the FN Dish after the show “I gave him a lob; that’s how easy this dish was. I was begging him the entire time: Show us your personality. Let it come out. This is the time to let it rip. I remember saying that to him so many times. He’s like, “I love spicy food,” and then he made the drippiest, personality-less Thai dish. There was no spice, no big flavors. He was great; his mise en place was always so good; his shrimp was cooked perfectly. I really thought for a while that Carlos was going to be my guy.”
Robert Irvine admitted he was shocked that Anne cut Carlos as well….but I think for most of us, we were surprised that Kelsey made it as far as she did, and even got to experience both teams – so why exactly did Robert let her go? Robert said of the last challenge “Kelsey’s husband came. He was deer hunter guy. He loves to hunt, so she wanted to make him venison. She went from burning everything to serving it raw, still bleeding. And it was such a shame because she knew how to cook it. She did well when she moved over to my team; she turned a corner. The pan wasn’t hot when she seared it; all the things that she had been taught, she didn’t do. That was heartbreaking. She was so afraid of burning everything, so she overcompensated.”
Be sure to tune in Sunday for the season finale of Worst Cooks In America on Food Network at 9 pm EST!
