It's enjoyable--and makes you feel so superior...isn't that awful?!
20 January 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this series is not yet complete, I have watched all the episodes and enjoyed them very much. I hate to admit it, but I think I liked the shows simply because unlike other Food Network shows, this one made me feel like a master chef in comparison! Heck, most 7 year-olds would feel superior to the people chosen for this odd competition! Plus, it's sad to admit, but I liked laughing at the food that some of them created--it was so scary it was almost surreal!

In episode one, two big-time chefs recruit teams for each other that are made up of some of the worst cooks you could imagine. Unlike the very closely controlled format of later shows, the potential team members were invited to bring in ANYTHING and have the chefs evaluate their appropriateness for the show. What they did not know is that the ones chosen were NOT those who made acceptable dishes, but those who made the most horrible food--and soe dmishes were amazingly gross and funny. The biggest problem with most of these potential competitors appears to be confidence--they are, in most cases, just too afraid of cooking and it shows in the very scary 'things' they concoct. On the other hand, a few were simply clueless.

In subsequent episodes, the two teams are given very specific tasks and the two chefs demonstrate a variety of techniques and the participants try to replicate them as best they can. And, each episode the teams lose a member--the one who does poorest.

Overall, a bizarre sort of show but one that is oddly addictive--and, in a sick way, kind of funny. It's fun to watch and very different from the usual fare on this channel. I'll be most likely updating this review after the series concludes.
