As an amateur home chef who is also a teacher, I am completely disgusted by this show.
The hosts of this program know nothing about education, but they have mastered the art of humiliation.
While educators such as Julia Child (and Alton Brown and Rachael Ray) successfully demystify cooking and inspire home cooks to believe in themselves, these chefs seem more concerned with belittling their students.
It is truly sad that the Food Network believes this program is more worthy than the far more inspirational "Chef Jeff Project." That show was the exact opposite of "Worst Cooks." It taught people who had little self-confidence to believe in themselves in cooks and as human beings.
Obviously, these hosts have not seen the "Chef Jeff Project." If you haven't seen the program, you should try to track it down. It is an antidote to this dehumanized, toxic mess called "Worst Cooks in America."
