Worst Cooks in America -- 2011 Season

Back for a new season, and if one were to only look at the interwebs for input, one would draw an easy conclusion that I am the only person who likes this show, anywhere. Perhaps I'm just the only person who likes food and cooking and also likes this show, since I can't possibly monitor all of the message boards, everywhere. Perhaps there is a gaggle of single engineers or computer programmers, somewhere, who like this show because they have no interest in food or cooking, and it's comforting to know that there are others who share their apathy toward the subject.

I, however, do find that the contestants seem to be genuinely untalented, when it comes to cooking, although they are talented at doing other things, and some of them are actually wishing to remedy their inability in the kitchen. This season, I'm particularly interested in the lady who is an OR Nurse (Jen), and Georg, who is a Speech Therapist. Jen did a bang-up job at butchering a chicken, because her experience in the OR gives her a great knowledge of anatomy, while Georg really wants to learn to cook so that her wife and child can eat good meals.

Looking forward to the rest of the season. Anyone else watching? Someone must be, or they wouldn't have scheduled another season with a larger cast of contestants this time.

You know, that's unwarranted stereotyping and it makes me so mad I could just throw my pocket protector at your head.

This is my skillet. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My skillet is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it, as I must master my life. Without me my skillet is useless. Without my skillet, I am useless. I must season my skillet well. I will. Before God I swear this creed. My skillet and myself are the makers of my meal. We are the masters of our kitchen. So be it, until there are no ingredients, but dinner. Amen.

I am shallowly watching this show in hopes that Chef Robert shows up in a tee shirt.

T-shirt, shmee-shirt. I'm waiting for him to go all Hulk Hogan and simply rip the chefs whites right off his torso. Now THAT would be entertaining.

ROFLMAO, but yes, I feel your pain.

I do have high hopes that Robert will take his shirt off this season, as well. Rowr.
