Do you think you’re one of the worst cooks in America? Well, Food Network has found who they think are and now you can watch as they compete to win a grand prize. But we’re not going to leave you all alone – one very lucky reader of Small Screen Scoop will get to practice their culinary skills by winning the Food Network Wii Game Cook or Be Cooked!

Twelve of the most hopeless cooks in the country will compete in a high-stakes elimination series in Worst Cooks in America. At stake for the last two standing is the chance to cook for a panel of esteemed culinary critics and win the grand prize of $25,000. This six-week series will put the “recruits” through a culinary boot camp led by two acclaimed chefs: Anne Burrell, host of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, and Beau MacMillan, executive chef at Elements in Phoenix.
