"WORST COOKS IN AMERICA" BACK FOR SIXTH SEASON OF CULINARY BOOT CAMP WITH RETURNING CHEF ANNE BURRELL COMPETING FOR THE FIRST TIME AGAINST CHEF TYLER FLORENCE

Superstar Chefs Transform Kitchen Disasters into Skilled Cooks in Series Return on Sunday, January 4th at 9pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - November 20, 2014 - Worst Cooks in America, the hit competition series that transforms kitchen disasters into confident cooks, is back for a sixth season on Sunday, January 4th at 9pm ET/PT with returning Chef Anne Burrell going up against first-time opponent Chef Tyler Florence. In the seven-episode series, Anne and Tyler each lead a team of kitchen-challenged recruits in a grueling culinary boot camp designed to turn them into skilled cooks. A $25,000 grand prize is awarded to the contestant who makes the most impressive culinary transformation, in addition to delivering victory and bragging rights for their team leader.

"Welcoming a new roster of Worst Cooks is an annual tradition, and our viewers love watching their comical kitchen mishaps evolve into serious cooking chops," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "Anne and Tyler are both fiercely competitive and determined to whip their contenders into tip-top culinary shape, and the transformations are remarkable."

In the season premiere, an open call brings some truly horrible cooks to the table to meet Anne and Tyler. Fourteen new recruits are selected for boot camp and each presents their signature dish, then contestants are divided into Team Anne and Team Tyler. In lesson one, recruits must make the ultimate romantic meal. Anne's red team tackles Roasted Chicken with Israeli Couscous and Pomegranate Sauce, while Tyler's blue team makes Chateaubriand with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Mushrooms. The least successful competitors from each team are sent home, while the remaining 12 move on to the next challenge. Upcoming episodes feature a food trivia game, international taco themed competition and a breakfast menu challenge with special guest, Good Morning America Chief Meteorologist and resident foodie Ginger Zee. The season culminates in a finale on Sunday, February 15th at 9pm ET/PT where the most improved recruit is awarded a $25,000 grand prize.
