Casting Call Information

Are you a hopeless cook? Or is someone you know totally incompetent in the kitchen?

Food Network is looking for the most disastrous home cooks in the country to participate in a very different culinary competition show!

This is the opportunity of a lifetime — to work with the best chefs in the country and learn to cook like a professional. Seeking outgoing people with a genuine inability to cook, but a need and desire to improve!


  • Do your kids beg to eat out, after you’ve worked hard to make a family meal?
  • Has your husband/wife told you it was probably better if you ordered take out?
  • At the big potluck dinner, are you always asked to “just bring the napkins?”


  • Is someone you know constantly offering you food that you have to turn down?
  • If you know a mom who can’t scramble an egg, a colleague who can’t convince anyone to try their culinary creations, or a friend who tries but can’t seem to get it together in the kitchen, this is your chance to get them the help you BOTH need!

**Nominators: you must attend the interview with the person you nominate

• Email us at
• Tell us why you (or the person you are nominating) is the most disastrous cook in the country
• Include name, age, hometown, occupation, contact phone number, and a recent photo of the hopeless cook
