Worst Cooks In America

Here is the list, I don’t know what it says about me that I recognize all of them: 

I have never watched the Bachelor so I only know about Wells because he is engaged to Sarah Hyland from Modern Family. Johnny Bananas was on the Real World Key West and a gazillion seasons of the Challenge, Dave Coulier is from Full House and Alanis Morissette fame, Sonja is a Real Housewife of NYC, Robin Givens, actress dated Brad Pitt and was married to Mike Tyson and recently was looking fabulous on Riverdale and Katy Keane, Bridget and Brian are comedians. I have adored Brian since I first saw him opening for Patton Oswalt a gazillion years ago but I imagine they will hammer home the nerd jokes with him (he was a recurring character on The Bog Bang Theory). Most of these people are still working regularly so I actually think it’s less of a washed up cast than normal.

Yea I actually know all but one of these people, and for the same reasons. But still surprised we are pretending Wells can’t cook when he posts cooking videos regularly.

Two episodes tonight? I don't have the energy for that. I'll catch the second one tomorrow.

It ended up being one 90 minute episode and then some kind of best of mess that I didn’t watch.

That grease fire...I’m afraid somebody’s really going to get hurt on this show someday.

Thanks. I didn't watch any of it, so I'll probably watch it tonight. Funny how no one seems to be talking about it!

I watched the "best of mess."  LOL  It was mostly goofy stuff but I did enjoy seeing Joshie again.  

I didn't understand why they kept that housewife contestant (who is terrible) because that made the teams uneven.  Now they've sent home one of the guys so there are 2 on Tyler's team and 4 on Anne's.  I wonder how they'll handle that.  

Robin Givens seems to be the most "normal" and the brightest of the remaining contestants but then..................  She married Mike Tyson so maybe not.  🙂  I'll be very surprised if she doesn't make final 2.  I'm guessing Wells for the other.  He's cute when he stops horsing around.

I was going to say, given his performance so far, a.k.a. Johnny Bananas seems like he may be the designated blue team finalist-to-inevitably-lose-to-one-of-Anne-Burrell's-team in the finale.

2020 is showing no mercy.

An hour of this show is harmless, mindless fun. Dragging this mess out to 90 minutes was the nail in the coffin for me.
 

I actually think this the most “normal” group they’ve had in while. The only complete psycho is the housewife. I guess Johnny is insane too.

I can't believe they kept the housewife over the other guy, which creates lopsided teams - perhaps they will have a team swap next week to even them back up.

I was so hoping that with all of the screen time and interview time that she got it meant the housewife was going home.  Really?  This woman has fans and is a star on a reality show?

I really liked how excited that Dave was with how much Tyler liked (loved?) his mashed potatoes.

I don't think Johnny's insane. It's his reality show personality. It's what gives him camera time and considering that he has been doing the Challenge for over a decade it has worked very well for him. To watch him in interviews and podcasts he is dialed down.

I didn't realize that this had come back until last night and I wasn't aware there was a forum for it until I post in Challenge in the media. I wish the housewife had gone. Sadly Brian wouldn't have lasted long either way. He just doesn't move quick enough. Strangely I always thought that that was just a bit that he did as that's legit every character he ever plays, but then I remembered working with him and I was like, "this is not a bit." So sad cause he's really sweet.

At first I when Johnny was doing his antics I thought I would hate him. But after being warned that he should take it seriously, I think he realized this is not The Challenge and these people are not going to tolerate your behavior. He did kind of retreat a little back into Bananas mode when he cut himself and he kept trying to keep going. I don't think that was malicious, I think it's just his nature that you don't stop when you're hurt on the Challenge or TJ will tell you he's disappointed in you.

It also made me laugh when he, rightfully so, during the horse/identify the food challenge called someone out for cheating. Yes, they totally cheated, but when your slogan is "if you're not cheating, you're not trying," you gotta get over it.

What dirt does Guarnaschelli have on TPTB at FN that she ends up on every single show? I will say, as much as I don't care for her, surely she can't be worse than Alton Brown was on this one.

Alton Brown is a full-of-himself ass.  He can take a few thousand seats in the back row!  Alex is overused, for sure, but girl can cook, and I heard her say that she loves competitions, so she probably asks to be on.

I've never heard of her. I didn't even know she was a she-Alex. I'll give her a shot. I like Tyler and Bobby Flay as hosts, I didn't like Alton and I really don't like Robert Irvine. Rachel Ray was ok. 

It'll never happen, but I wonder what Gordon Ramsey would be like hosting. 

ETA: I've seen her on Chopped.

IMO Tyler is best suited to be host along with Anne.  He is loose, and is a very good teacher.  Even Bobby seemed fed up sometimes.

I loved Alton Brown on Worst Cooks (this is a show guaranteed to make chefs who love precision and rationality uncomfortable) and I shall love Alex Guarneschelli even more!

Alton Brown's sidebar about his role on Iron Chef (basically, I look things up on my laptop and critique. I don't cook!) was, for me, one of the best moments ever on Worst Cooks.

I liked Alton on Worst Cooks, too, because he just had no fucks to give about the whole thing. I found it refreshing.  I get why that may have rubbed people the wrong way but I was glad he did not dumb himself down for the shenanigans.

I'm nowhere near close to a fan of Johnny Bananas, but after this week, I'm pretty sure this is rigged somehow (like The Masked Singer is rigged for certain contestants to be voted off after only doing a certain amount of episodes, not like how Twenty-One was rigged). I've watched enough cooking shows to know it's all about the protein, and Dave Coulier overcooked his protein (both weeks, actually), but got a bizarre amount of praise for his side dish (both weeks).

It now leads me to believe Dave Coulier is the designated lose-to-one-of-Anne-Burrell's-team finalist (potentially to Robin Givens, no spoilers, just a theory), who will come from behind, and Johnny Bananas will be the elimination comeback kid until he's finally sent packing. Anne Burrell clearly hates him.

I agree.  I wish they'd explain why they keep showing him saying, "Cut it out."  I'm guessing it's a line from some show he's on but I don't know the reference.  

My guess re the finalists is Wells and Robin Givens.

"Cut it out" was his catchphrase on Full House, his most famous (/only remotely famous) role. Which ended TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO, DAVE. Ahem. Have I mentioned that I can't stand him?? 

(Yes, I know Fuller House is a thing. I'm pretending not to. Not sorry.)

I think this actually originated on Out of Control, which I have zero idea how I know because it was on when I was 3.

The look on Robin’s face when Anne compared her to Sonja was glorious. Not even the most calling out Sonja got today by black women (she also got called out in Twitter by Bernice King).

I wished there was a way it could have been a final two of Bridget and Robin because they are the only two I like, but now I just how Bridget wins.

I was surprised because I thought Robin would be one of the finalists for sure.  I like Bridget but I don't see her being calm enough or quick enough to survive the final cook-off so now I'm thinking it may come down to the two young guys.

Johnny for the loss! Of course he’d think he could get away with calling Anne “bruh.” Hopefully she or Wells can flip him on his back and drag him across the room, a la his greatest Challenge moment.

So, how's this going to shake out? I've only seen a few of these, but I've never seen a Worst Cooks edition where Anne Burrell's contestant doesn't win. Yet, the only Celebrity Worst Cooks I ever saw was the one with Tonya Harding, so ostensibly the most "famous" person won. In this case, two reality competition(ish) stars at the end is like scraping the bottom of the barrel's bottom of the barrel. I'd never heard of Wes Adams before this, but I'd heard of Johnny Bananas, due to my reality TV viewing habits. So, I might be biased in saying Johnny Bananas is more "famous?" Still, Anne Burrell seems to hate him, and that seems like it plays a role.

Who's going to triumph, long-time viewers: Johnny Bananas' "celebrity" or Anne Burrell and "who the eff is Wes Adams?"

I actually like this final two, but I also liked Bridgett, but felt like Wells has been more consistent.  Once Johnny settled down and started to actually pay attention he has shown that he can do whatever task is put before him.  Glad to see Dave leave - he seemed like a nice enough guy but he was so annoying!

I'm actually hoping for a Wells win simply because I like his fiancé.  Shallow, I know.

I've never seen a single Bachelor Nation episode, so I don't know how Wells is, but I like him here. He's basically a giant self-deprecating dork trapped in the body of a boy band member.

Whereas his opponent is a dude-brah douche with even douchier friends.
