  1. Debora Dickerson says:

    Help! I'm a young, college woman and I can't cook to save my life. I've been living off of sandwiches and fast food for as long as I can remember. When i'm lucky I can nab some food from my other or I'll pick up a 'ready made' meal that will save me from starving! I've burned cakes, screwed up fried rice, overbeat eggs and make a cheesecake explode! How does that even happen?! I need HELP HELP HELP! My cooking has gotten so bad I'm scared to feed to family because it has gotten them sick before! HELP HELP HELP! I don't want to murder my family with my cooking!

  2. Jessica says:

    I'm 22 years old and I've been trying to cook since I was five. For a long time my bad cooking was adorable. At 22 it just means I don't get invited anywhere unless I promise to just bring the ice. I love cooking, I have so much fun doing it. I just wish I could actually eat my food after I cook it, rather than having to give it to the dogs. Most of the time my dogs won't even eat it and it's just trash. I have so much fun cooking and I don't want to give up but at this point I've wasted so much good food In my attempts that I'm starting to feel like food hitler. Murdering a bunch of innocent food. I really need training and professional help, I can't keep wasting food. I'm a huge fan of foodnetwork and many of the stars on it. It'd be on honor to learn from one of them.

  3. Savannah says:

    My nana (age 69) doesn't know how to cook, and it all tastes horrible. She tries to be "creative" and, "doctor up" recipes, but she fails EVERY time and it is so hard to tell her how we feel about it. No one is honest with her because she gets her feelings hurt. Papa says "great job!" but I think he has eaten her bad food for so long that he is used to it or he has lost his sense of taste altogether. When she invites us over for dinner, we usually make up an excuse why we can't come, or say we will come over later and bring dessert to her house. I would like to eat at her house, but it is a miserable experience! Please help!!!

  4. James Roberts says:

    The problem starts at the grocery store where I don't know how to pick out good produce or meat.
    I macerate everything with my poor knife skills.
    Until last month, I didn't know you could marinade meats.Contrary to popular belief, it's possible to burn water.
    I didn't know there were different cuts if steak until my friend asked me if I wanted a Porterhouse or rivers. I try to cut onions while they're still round (without halving them).
    I once thought grilled zucchini were cucumbers.I made scrambled eggs with no milk or water for years and years.I've burnt chocolate while attempting to melt it. I can't follow a recipe. I pretty much live off of whatever someone cooks for me or food from my job since I work at qdoba, or any restaurant I go to. Im twenty six years old and like to workout and would like to get my diet in order but since I dont know how to cook thats my struggle.

  5. Rebecca green says:

    I need to now how to cook more than hamburger meat I tried cooking chicken once and sent my husband to the hospital I want to cook healthy and keep my family from the hospital and have a variety of food I can cook

  6. Keri Slomba says:

    My sister in law really needs help cooking. She literally burns water. She wanted to make some tea on the stove so she put everything together on the stove like it needed to be and forgot about it. 3 hours later she smelt something and the pot was on fire. She had burned the tea. There wasn't any water in the pot just burnt tea grains. She has a boyfriend and her family would really like if she could learn to cook for him.

  7. Axel B says:

    I cooked a plain omelette this morning. I ate half of it. I couldn't eat the whole thing. I've been trying to cook this dish for a while, yes! a long while

  8. iKelley says:

    I have the greatest family in the world. I have a 13 year old son, a 7 year old daughter, and have been married to my new husband for 3 years. I've nevered cooked until i got married and my woderful family push their food around and pretend to eat anything I cook. My son has lost alot of weight and my daughter cries for take out or for my son to cook almost every night. I really want to learn to cook to make my family proud and to be able to feed them something they will actually eat.

  9. Chris Norris says:

    Hello, I served in the Army for 13 years. I have a wife and four kids and now that I am out of the Army I finally have the opportunity to be at home with my family. So, I want to learn how to cook for them from scratch. I'm tired of fast food and take out. I am also a diabetic and eating properly is now a big deal for me.

    I was honorably discharged from the Army after returning from Afghanistan and I am a disabled veteran. This would be a huge opportunity for me because I would love to learn how to cook properly for them and I would like to prove to myself that I can do this.

    I have no training or cooking experience. I do not know what the instruments are called or even how to used most of them.

    I would love the chance to prove myself on your show, thank you for your time.

  10. Dawn Haley says:

    I am a new mother to a six month old and have a wonderful fiancé and mother who always ask me to cook dinner and weekend brunch and although I try very hard and use various cook books the food never comes out the way it should
    I would love the chance to be taught by the best chefs around to make my family proud and so we can enjoy many meals together as a family
    My daughter is beginning to eat food and so far I have peeled and steamed apples and sweet potatoe but she only liked the apples and my husband loves meat breakfast foods and sweets and my mother loves creeps and Spanish foods and I just can't get the flavors right
    It is either not enough or way too much flavors and I

    would love to learn how to bake cookies that aren't rock hard and cakes not from a box
    I d love to learn how to make things like roasts and meats and even a good al dente pasta
    My grandmother is 94 and from Palermo Italy and is the best cook and I hope one day to be able to make one of her recipes yummy instead of yucky
    Please help so my child and family can enjoy my food
    Especially when our family of 24 comes for thanksgiving
    I'd be greatful to learn how to cook and bake the simest things and even harder things
    I'm tired if spending the money on eating out and never using my apron

  11. Colline Cummins says:

    I'm 28 and a single mom of a 6 month old baby girl. I cannot cook to the point where I have turned scrambled eggs into powder and blew up my mothers microwave trying to make chex mix where I then proceeded to set the front lawn on fire. I don't want to eat out all the time with my daughter. I want to learn to cook so that I can provide a healthy lifestyle for my daughter.

  12. Nurse Tracy says:

    I am a foodie that can not cook. I grow beautiful fruits and veggies in my yard then ruin them in my kitchen. My husband and kids have lied and told me they just aren't hungry, only to sneak into the kitchen later. I once caught a pot of water on fire. I can provide references if needed.

  13. megan says:

    /I can't even cook macaroni and cheese. I want to learn to be a healthy cook with the right foods. So this would be a fun opportunity!!

  14. Kristen Witt says:

    The big joke in our small town…literally the entire town…is that I "make" the best ice in town. So, anytime we are invited to a function, dinner, party or anything that involves people bringing a dish, I am always asked to bring the ice. My cooking is that bad. Which is sad, considering my husband is an amazing cook and grill master.

    I am 42 years old and have been married for 22 years and have 4 children and I teach high school English. My husband and I have both lost over 100 pounds and I would like to be able to create healthy, delicious meals for my entire family. The thing is, the kitchen scares me and the grocery store makes my hyperventilate. I'm totally out of my element when it comes to anything culinary…but I want to conquer my fears; maybe even make a dish better than my husband, or Atleast enjoy cooking with him and contributing to our meals. And…not be intimidated by him and his perfect culinary skills. My husband works a lot of overtime in the evenings, so the kids and I have YOYO (you're on your own) dinners way to often. When I do cook, I usually make hamburger helper and if I'm feeling really adventurous, I might chop some onions and add black olives…yes, I know, that's living on the wild side! I'd like to create meals my kids want to eat and make it a family affair. I'm perfect for your show because I'm a great learner, with a positive attitude and an outgoing, friendly personality. Please help me lose my reputation as "The Queen of Ice," I know that can become a great cook with the right training. My town, my husband, my children and my students would love to see this transformation. Pick me, I'm ready to become a kitchen ninja! Blessings, Kristen.

  15. Stacey says:

    It's hard to try a recipe or even discuss cooking when you live with someone (my mom) who's an excellent cook and baker. What makes matters worse, we absolutely WILL NOT TAKE direction/suggestion from each other, and she's as territorial about the kitchen as a lioness about her cubs. And yes, I'm a horrible cook and cannot bake without everything hardening like volcano rock.

  16. Nicki says:

    Because I'd finally be good at something… Being good at being a bad chef!!! This is literally the only reality show I'm perfect for. I'm 26 and just married a couple weeks ago. My husband loved me enough to sacrifice his love for food. I owe it to him to apply for this show! I'm a chemist. I cook chemicals. You'd think I'd be able to cook food but it's the extreme opposite. I'm perfect for your show!!!! My family could finally stop criticizing my cooking if I learn something! I want this!!!!!!

  17. Lynn Dill says:

    My husband of 17 years insists I am the worst cook. He doesn't let me in the kitchen anymore. I've tried, but I end up ruining everything. It is embarrassing. I've even messed up jello. I am definitely a good candidate for your show!

  18. Ryan Gale says:

    I'm 24 and can barely use the microwave. I try to eat as healthy as poosible,but have to rely on my mom and others to do the cooking. I'll be in my own place soon and really need help. Pick me.

  19. david enochs says:

    I have been told that cooking is like being an artist. You have to have some sort of talent to start with. Well lets put it this way, when I draw- my stick figures look like they have the plague. And when I cook for me and my wife, well I can tell she is being nice to me but I notice she never really eats much at home. She always seems to want to drop by some fast food place instead of me making her a lunch. I really could use some help in the kitchen

  20. Mariah says:

    My daughter is a trained chef. She refuses to nominate me because she would be humiliated. I am 52 and they only way I eat is if it comes from the toaster or a food bar. My daughter wants to move out but she is afraid I will starve to death. Prepackaged food is too high in Sodium, so I need to learn to cook so I can eat healthy for myself. Let's face it, there are only so many boxes of frozen entrees one can eat and I think I am way over my quota.

  21. Jayda Pitt says:

    I am a 34yr old full time mother. I watch food network everyday trying to teach myself to cook for my boys. The only thing I can make is grill cheese and ham sandwiches which I jack up the bread every time. How is that possible? I even jack up a pot of boiled water. Please Please help.

  22. Mimi says:

    I am a mother of three boys, one is my husband. I used to be a very good cook, but of late it's not the same. I really need help. My family will be expanding and I need to know how to properly cook ingredients. I was born and raised in New Orleans but I'm in Texas now. Please consider me. My husband deserves a great meal when he gets home from work. Thank you in advance for the consideration. I may even bring a little Lagniappe.

  23. Rachel says:

    Hi There

    HELP! I would really like to learn how to cook for family and friends
    I live on Lean Cuisine's dinners.
    I need to find fast ways to make healthy meals. I am too impatient waiting for a meal to be prepared. I get extremely hungry and need to eat right away. So watch out!!
    Many, many years ago I cooked chicken for my family and the fire alarm went off. The whole room was filled with smoke!
    The dinner ended up being a disaster!
    So no more cooking for me.

    Thanks so much

  24. Kay says:

    I'm 57 and still don't know how to cook. My mother hired a cook while we were growing up, so I didn't learn from her. I've actually made people ill with my cooking. I made my first husband sick because I didn't know I was supposed to refrigerate apple juice after opening. Then it went downhill from there. My kids called me "The Microwave Mama" (they probably still do behind my back). More recently, I made my neighbors sick from 5-year-old salad dressing. Perhaps the worst was when a neighbor had to have surgery the day after dining at my home: bowel surgery! We live way out in the mountains and now people won't come to dinner when I invite them. Plus, I can't just run out to a restaurant; they are 35 miles away. I need to learn to cook, or have no social life whatsoever. Worst case scenario, I kill myself with my own cooking! Hmmmmmm

  25. ALAN FINE says:


  26. Christina S says:

    My fiancee, Mike, used to cook for me and my 2 sons. One of my sons is autistic. Recently I have "taken" away my fiancee's kitchen rights. He has SOME talent, but we are a little tired of OVER spiced food, the same dishes over and over, or frozen pizza. Please take Mike as a contestant, he thinks he is a great cook, but I did convince him that IF you take him as a contestant he should go on your show!

  27. Krystal Leek says:

    I am a 38 year old female from Alabama. I have been married to my husband Kerry for 17 years as of July 12, 2013. I would think that I would be a great contestant for Worst Cook in America because by no means am I the best. I guess I do enough to keep my husband a live, However we do eat out a lot. I think that I cook pretty well considering that I taught myself what I do know how to cook. Keep me in mind for your next season because I believe that I have what it takes to be a better "at home" chef. :) Sincerely, Krystal

  28. Loretta says:

    I hate cooking and actually married a man who knew how to cook so that I did not have to. Well, we got divorced and now I have no one to cook for me. It is awful because I have two teenagers and both can cook better than I can. I need help. I actually need to learn how to cook. I guess it's never too late to learn.

  29. Kathryn Robinson says:

  40. Jeannette says:

    Nothing I cook turns out the way it is supposed to, I am incapable of following a recipe, (and although I've never poisoned anyone) most of the time they cannot identify what it is, and I can't figure out where I've gone wrong, I have managed to have some things looking correct, I don't know how I did it as I will put this and that until it seems like it should, however I can never make it the same way again even if I write down how I made it, of course my friends and family usually tell it's very good I not sure they really mean and just don't want me to feel bad. I can never make even box cakes, they are always lop-sided,missing the edges, dips in the center, over cooked, and my cake frosting is past scary, I follow the directions to the tee, it has never, ever looked like it is supposed to, yet I can't stop trying, and believe it or not, they still eat it and tell me how much they really like them, and since once it's in your stomsch you can't tell what it looks like. Please help me my grocery bill is huge most of which I dole out to neighbors, friends, and family
