  9. Deanna Carroll says:

    I'm unemployed with many medical condition. I'm very picky eater which has made my 2 boys the same. My husband is meat and potatoe man. When I cook everything is jarred plain dry and chewy. I have watched the Food Network Channel for years and I want so bad to learn to cook even if it's the basics. I know there are ways to work around my conditions so that I can have a healthy, nutritional, tasty meal on the table for my husband and kids. I have depression, anxiety, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and headaches to name a few. Because of my condition my kids see me sitting around all the time. I need to show my kids I deserve the respect and maybe I can teach them something. Please give me a chance. Thank goodness I have never burned the kitchen, cut myself, but I have burned many meals.

  10. Terri Schroer says:

    I would love to learn to cook. My husband works 13-16 hour days and then comes home usually around 8 or 9pm and cooks us dinner after he just worked all those hours. I love him so much and thank him for cooking us dinners, I just wish I knew how to cook so I could take over and have it ready for him. I have tried cooking many times in the past and I have caught the stove on fire, burnt my hand, and cut my finger so bad I had to have stitches. I am so nervous in the kitchen that I lose my confidence that I am a good wife to my husband. I would love to be on Worst Cooks in America to learn how to cook/bake and see how far I could actually make it. Thank You

  11. Randy Teegarden says:

    My wife says I will never make a good cook cause all I try to cook is meat and potatoes (which the meat is always well done and potatoes are dry), also cause I don't taste or season any vegetables. My wife would much rather microwave Boca burgers than than my cooking. That's why I need to be on the show so I can learn to fix a romantic dinner for her on our 10th anniversary in September this year.

  12. Autumn says:

    The reason why I think I should be on the show is because I burn everything my husband hates my food because it's always burnt. I just want to learn how to cook for my family. I have two little boys and it's pretty bad my 4 year old said he doesn't like my food.

  13. Lawanda says:

  14. Kassidy says:

    Hello, I am a newlywed who loves to cook for my wife but I tend to overcook every dish. From eggs to chicken, it ends up nearly burnt. Whenever I use a cheese grater I tend to grate some of my skin. The only thing my mom taught me is how to burn water. My wife and I eat mainly fast food because of how badly I cook for her. Please let me prove myself to the chefs. My dream is to be able to teach my future children how to cook.

  15. Kathy says:

    Hi! I've bought 2 houses that I sold with the film still on the inside of the brand new oven. I once made mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving that turned gray because I beat the bottom off the Teflon pan. I have purchased prepared meals to make my own that I messed up putting in my own platters. The funniest thing is that I own every kitchen gadget that exists. I love to cook but it is just a disaster. My family makes fun of the time I first met my brother and sister-in-law because the smoke alarm was going off as my baked potatoes were on fire in the oven! I had removed the film from beach house oven. HELP!!!

  16. Denise says:

    Greetings, I'm an energetic woman, wife, mother of two lovely boys, with a newly remodeled kitchen, and I can not cook! I told my husband I need a new kitchen to build my confidence and self esteem to cook like the professionals. Well, it's been two years and still no full-course meal. My seasoning is way off. I over cook my noodles, My chicken breast is very, very dry. Instead of take-out food most of the time, I would like to cook a decent meal. Sometimes, I would like to prepare a dish for the family potluck; but every time I decide to do it my husband quickly says, "we'll get pizza or chicken, it's quicker, no worries." I don't understand why my culinary skills have not developed. My parents were both great cooks; My mother is still cooking. My father was an extraordinary cook! He knew how to add the magic touch to any entree. Growing up, my uncles, aunts etc. would always come to our home because they knew my dad would be cooking amazing dishes – he was simply AWESOME! I so desire to be like him.

    Needless to say, it's becoming increasingly uncomfortable not being able to prepare a wholesome meal for my love-ones. My dad would always say,"food is like raising children, you don't need a book for it, you just need lots of love and patience".

    If giving the opportunity to appear on 'Worst Cooks in America' I truly believe I would learn so much from the very best chefs in the nation. Their experience and education would assist me in achieving my goal, of one day becoming the best food caterer on the WEST COAST.

    Here's to you dad!!!

  17. Philip Lester says:

    No matter how hard I try, with the exception of brisket and ribs in my smoker,

    I can not cook anything. I purchased the Pasta attachment for our kitenaid mixer, my pasta comes out in just a big lump. I just cant seem to get the spagatti to not stick together.

    A few weeks ago I was going to make some cheese dip for a get together. After all, how hard can it be to make cheese dip? I dont know what I did wrong, but no one touched the stuff. They just ate the chips plain.

    Dont get me started on the times I have tried to make a desert. I have tried over and over and over to make a good pearch cobbler in my dutch oven and they are awful.

    I can make some food, for example my breakfast mon-friday's is 10 egg whites with a cup of jalapenos and lots of tabasco sauce. My new favorite lunch is Ramen noodles with Campbell tomato soup poured over it and microwave it for a 1 min.

    NOw I can smoke brisket and ribs, but thats not hard. Put some salt and pepper on the meat, then put it on the trager for a few hours and leave it alone. But my wife refuses to let me make the sauce. Mine just doesnt taste right.

  18. Mary Wiley says:

    I name is Mary Wiley and I've been cooking for over 15 years it's and generalrational curse, but im sorry to say that xooking wasn't pass to my daughter Brenda McGee she os the worst cook ever. Macaroni with ground beef with no seasoning is one of her favorite meal. She rarely allowed in my kitchen so im the only one that cooks in my home, but im getting old and i would like my daughter to allowed in the kitchen so can you please help.

    Ps. Her son says she is the best cook ever he loves her ravioli out of the can and mmmmmmm her oddles of noddles are the boom and he says when she cook those chicken nugget he jiat love hee to pieces.

  19. Rhonda Kelley says:

    I am a 53 yr old hal breed half southern half northern. As my Mama would put it. She tried her best to teach me how to cook. She was the best cook. My brothers can cook. They could be Chef's. Me, I could burn water!

  20. Nancy says:

    I can't cook, I need help! Once I exploded eggs that even my dog wouldn't eat.

  21. Jaclyn says:

    I am by far the worst cook I've ever met. I even mess up box food. I hate the kitchen I don't know what anything in it is for. I make my husband do all the cooking even though I'm a stay at home mom and he's a police officer and has crazy hours. Our kids would starve if he didn't cook. Help me please

  22. Donna B says:

    Well I have loved to cook but most of my meals are just simple and most of time can't be eating but I still keep on trying My family says Thank GOD for prepared foods

  23. Megan Williams says:

    I am the worst cook in America….. I cannot stand the way raw foods feel, like raw chicken is the worse (gag). When I plate food, I do not even like my food touching because if something taste gross, I feel it will cause everything else to taste just as gross. One time my daughter and I almost burnt an entire hotel down bc we did not add water to the cup of easy Mac and the plastic caught on fire.

  24. Meg Marshall says:

    Please please please – this is where my husband Dave needs to be. This husband & father of 3 has not a CLUE in the kitchen. He is the WORST without a doubt. How can this be…… I mean as an adult, don't sone things come with just a little common spence????? He is scary in the kitchen as much as we love him. I just don't get it…..

  25. Lisa Smith says:

    My daughter needs to be on this show. She needs to learn how to season her foods and what goes well with what food. She made us scrambled eggs with lemon and A Chuck Roast seasoned only with cinnamon.

  26. Kimpace says:

    Please, Please, Please my husband age 41 and son age 18 cannot cook worth a damn everything they attempt to cook is either undercooked burned or straight dumped into the trashcan I am so tired of cooking everything from breakfast lunch and dinner if you could pick one or both I would truly be ever so grateful this will allow me to hang up my apron for once.

  27. Bridgette Kelly says:

    Wow this is the show for me. I am 32 year old female who needs desperately to learn how to cook. One would wonder how my first job in the Army was a cook. I ask my mom often how did I miss this life lesson growing up? In order to learn to cook I guess one would need to understand how to adequately grocery shop. I am still learning how to make minute rice. My idea of a home cooked meal is eggs, bacon and cereal. I would really love an opportunity to be apart of this show.

    Bridgette Kelly

  28. R ay Wilson says:

    Would love to learn to creat good food. I burned jello one time. That is the truth. I watch shows on your network where kids can do most things with food that I can not. I've tried some. I think I'd be a good prospect and compedidor. Please give me a shot I may suprise you and me.

  29. Luis Sanes says:

    I want to learn how to cook especially being a father. So I can cook for my child and not make him disgusted.
    I will show my dedication to working and learning.
    Please contact me.

  30. Tonya smith says:

We have been living on carryout and frozen foods pizza's and hamburger and hot dogs He just found out that he has diabetes and he needs to learn to cook healthier food for himself and me and the kids. We need help Please pick my fiancé

  31. tricia says:

    My husband John is by far the worst cook in America! His idea of a home cooked meal is found at a local fast food restaurant. IF he attempts to make something for our three daughters it ALWAYS comes out burnt. He cooks everything on HIGH! This is also true when he uses the grill, which he has been banned from.
    Please choose him so that our family and friends can see first hand that my daughters and I are not exaggerating.

  32. Garland Smith says:

    No beating around the bush on this one. I can not cook. It might be because I can not taste the food I cook. I had a accident when I was younger and burned my tongue bad. The nose still works and that is how I try to judge my food. I usually burn water on the stove yeah it is true. I don't know why. I put the water in the pot set it on high and wait ten to fifteen minutes. My meat loaf is usually a building brick. Yes a brick baked for 1 hour then break a window. Let's not talk about any baking skills because there is none. BBQ ha let me say fire is not my friend. I want to be on this show because I really need to learn how to cook and not eat fast food all the time. I can't afford it.

  33. Abigail Welsh says:

    My dad, Tim Welsh, is definitely one of the worst cooks in America. The only thing I have ever seen him make is eggs. The worst part is he cooks them in the microwave inside a plastic bowl! They make the whole house smell and they look disgusting. He overcooks them to where they are hardly yellow. When I was young he made me try them. They were the WORST thing I have ever put in my mouth, and I say that because I never actually swallowed them. We always go out to eat, order a pizza, or eat frozen dinners. Please, help my dad and I.

    Abigail Welsh

  34. Ashlie Martin says:

    My husband just asked me what I'm doing and I told him that I am wanting to get on the show Worst Cooks in America, and he straight up told me that "you would for sure win." Seriously, Need I Say More?

    The frustrating thing is, It's not that I don't like to cook, I'm just absolutely a fish out of water when it comes time to make anything. I stick to my two dishes boxed mac n' cheese & Spaghetti, maybe some cereal.

    I've messed up hard boiled eggs for crying out loud!!

    I'm desperate! I need help, so that my family stops suggesting we go out to eat every night!

  35. Shania Richey says:

    I NEED my husband to be on this, he cant even make mac and cheese from the box. He burns everything he tries to make. Id love for him to be able to cook so i can have one day off from cooking every once in a while. He is the Worst Cook in America by far. Please pick hin

  36. Megan sadler says:

    please save me. I fear my husbands food may poison our children and I to death. The only thing he can make is ramen. Sincerely the desperate wife.

  37. Tobias Foster says:

    My boyfriend, Allen,is by the far the Worst Cook in America hands down. His skills are so bad that he is not even allowed to open the refrigator without me being present. His idea of a romantic meal is undercooked chicken covered in gravy to hide the blood still oozing from the meat. And let's not talk about breakfast with the bacon so raw, you would think the pig was in the other room. Please, please help my baby become a better cook before we get married.

    Thank you

  38. Dana Hackney says:

    I need to nominate my best friend, Anna DeGirolamo. I love her but I always have to cook supper because she is a horrible cook. Anna can't even correctly make Ramen Noodles or even canned Tomato Soup! Her dog won't even eat anything she cooks! Sorry Anna!

  39. Stephanie Jordan says:

    Hello! My name is Stephanie, am a middle aged twenty something, and I surely am a one of a kind gal! I come from a big greek family so overall I truly appreciate the value of a good meal! I am so fascinated by food and am constantly eager to learn new things. However, when the time comes for me to execute, I fall rather short lets just say :/. Im an identical twin and have lived with the constant competition for the "spotlight." I am more ambitious than most people in this world and I know I can succeed with the proper tools and knowledge :)

  40. Danny says:

    Hello! I think I'm a very good cook, I can cook the crap out of Kraft Mac & Cheese! Unfortunately, I guess you're not supposed to cook the crap out of it. Since I'm the only one who thinks my food is edible my family thinks I should be on the show to see the error of my ways. Only for the sole purpose of pleasing THEIR palates! I guess majority rules. Please consider me for the show and I will produce my magic for Chef Bobby And Chef Anne! Let them decide who's right! Thank you.

  41. Jasmine Denny says:

    I am 19 years old. My name is Jasmine. Coming from a generation of people that cooked food it was never passed down to me. I want to be able to learn and become a person that is better than just making cereal to my family. That one day I can pass it down to my siblings and children. Pick me so I can have an experience to make a possible career. Thank you.

  42. Barbara Goen says:

    My husband told me that this is the only cooking show I should watch because the contestants would be able to teach me something because I am worst than they are. I take the battery out of my smoke alarm when I make toast because it always goes off, so please pick me so that I can learn how to cook those fabulous meals for my husband.

  43. Candice rinlee says:

    My husband is the worst cook I have ever met! He made me fried eggs that had the consistency of an over boiled egg and tried to make macaroni and cheese and never drained the water from the pasta

  44. julie muckler says:

    Good morning. I am the worst cook in America–or certainly in the top five. Hamburger Helper is beyond my capabilities. My grill at home recently melted. I am no longer allowed to have knives without supervision. I want to prove myself to millions of viewers, as well as my son and husband, who are already cringing in anticipation. Please pick me.

  45. Denise Whitford says:

    I am a single mom who is a very picky eater and only eat certain things. I need to learn how to cook so maybe i can get a man to share my life with.

    thank you
