RACHAEL RAY JOINS ANNE BURRELL IN FIRST-EVER CULINARY BOOT CAMP FOR KITCHEN-CHALLENGED STARS IN CELEBRITY EDITION OF "WORST COOKS IN AMERICA"

Food Masters Transform All-Star Kitchen Disasters into Skilled Cooks in Six-Episode Special Series Premiering Wednesday, September 23rd at 9pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - August 24, 2015 - Worst Cooks in America returns with a starry twist this fall, as Rachael Ray joins four-time winner Anne Burrell in the kitchen to transform seven celebrity cooking disasters into culinary VIPs. Anne and Rachael each lead a team of personalities who have many talents on-screen, but little savvy in the kitchen - and these food masters are determined to whip the celebs into culinary shape. The all-star recruits are: Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jenni "Jwoww" Farley, Chris Soules, Jaleel White, Kendra Wilkinson and Barry Williams. The contestant who makes the most impressive food transformation wins a $50,000 grand prize for charity, as well as bragging rights for their team leader. The celebrity edition of Worst Cooks in America premieres Wednesday, September 23rd at 9pm ET/PT.

"With Anne and Rachael as team leaders to a roster of cooking-challenged celebrities, Worst Cooks boot camp is high energy and hilarious," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "The kitchen is bursting with big personalities and comical culinary mishaps - but along the way some of these celebs actually develop impressive cooking chops."

In the season premiere, Rachael joins Anne for the first time in boot camp and they are introduced to their recruits - celebrities who can't cook. They have a limited amount of time to turn these seven pampered personalities into kitchen stars, so they assess everyone's skill level at the first-ever Worst Cooks potluck and find themselves tasting some very interesting dishes. After Anne and Rachael pick teams, one celebrity does not make the cut and is sent back to Tinseltown. Upcoming episodes feature suspenseful blindfold dish tastings, a rousing game of Family Food and small-dish tapas-style entertaining. The season culminates in a finale on Wednesday, October 28th at 9pm ET/PT where the most improved recruit is awarded $50,000 for charity and bragging rights for their mentor.
