The Bachelor fans won't have to wait until January to get another televised glimpse of one of the franchise's leading men.
Worst Cooks in America, which will star Chris Soules among a few other celebrities with reality TV ties, will premiere Wednesday, September 23 at 9PM ET/PT on Food Network.
Worst Cooks in America returns with Rachael Ray joining four-time winner Anne Burrell in the kitchen to transform seven celebrity cooking disasters into real, impressive chefs.
In the six-episode series, Anne and Rachael will each lead a team of celebrities through culinary boot-camp style challenges. A grand prize of $50,000 will be awarded to charity on behalf of the contestant who gets whipped into shape and best masters his or her way around the kitchen.
"With Anne and Rachael as team leaders to a roster of cooking-challenged celebrities, Worst Cooks boot camp is high energy and hilarious," Food Network executive Bob Tuschman said in a statement. "The kitchen is bursting with big personalities and comical culinary mishaps -- but along the way some of these celebs actually develop impressive cooking chops."
During the show's season premiere, Rachael and Anne are introduced to their recruits, whose lack of skill is assessed via the first-ever Worst Cooks potluck challenge. After "interesting" dishes are revealed to the team leaders, according to the network, Anne and Rachael will pick their squads. However, one celebrity will not get chosen.
The season finale of Worst Cooks in America, which is produced by Optomen Productions LLC, will air on Wednesday, October 28 at 9PM ET/PT.
