Bad Cooks Wanted For Food Network Show; Jimmy Moore Video To Be Featured On ‘Ask Aida’

Filed under: Television — @ July 24, 2008

Is being in the kitchen like a foreign country to you?

First they were looking for “amazing stories” surrounding food. Then they wanted video submissions asking a cooking expert for help in the kitchen. Now The Food Network is looking for the most hopeless, helpless, and hapless home cooks in America (you know who you are)!

If you or someone you know has no clue what they are doing in the kitchen, then listen up. Do you burn water when you try to boil it? Is your idea of cooking slapping together a cold cut sandwich? Then you could appear in a brand new show coming to The Food Network for a “culinary competition” with other similar contestants from across the United States.

The more incompetent the cook, the better. And they truly want “the most disastrous cooks in the country” to step forward and claim their title of worst cooks in America. Your reward for outing yourself as a bad cook is to have the chance to work with some of the finest professional chefs in the country as they teach you the secrets to being a great cook. Of course, you’ll need to be an interesting, outgoing person with a personality that will capture the attention of the television viewers at home.

If you genuinely can’t cook but wish you knew how and want to be considered for this new show on The Food Network, then nominate yourself or someone you know to be on this show. Are you the kind of person that is asked to bring the napkins and plates rather than food? Or do you have someone in mind who fits this mold? That’s who The Food Network is looking for, so don’t be shy. ENTER TODAY!

Keep in mind if you nominate someone, then you will need to attend the interview with your friend or loved one as well. How often do you get a chance to be on television because you are BAD at something (okay, American Idol is the ONE exception!).

It’s super-easy to apply–just send an e-mail to with an explanation about why you or the person you are nominating is dubbed in your mind as “the most disastrous cook in the country.” Don’t forget to include your name, age, hometown, occupation, contact phone number, and a recent photo of the hopeless, helpless, hapless cook. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE and here’s hoping your “bad” cooking turns into a chance to be on TV learning how to cook well.

By the way, remember when I told you about a new show coming to The Food Network in August called “Ask Aida” and I submitted a couple of videos to be considered for that show? My first video was about how to brown mashed cauliflower and my other video featured how to make eggs more interesting. Well, they chose one of my videos to be featured on the show and I now have a date when it will air.

On Saturday, August 23, 2008 at 12:30pm EST, Aida Mollenkamp will do an entire show on the subject of eggs. My video will be played and then Aida will share some wonderful recipes that feature eggs. She’s already posted two recipes featuring eggs here and here (I LOVED this one!) and I can’t wait to see what she shares on the show. WOO HOO! I’m gonna be on The Food Network for about 45 seconds. :D
