Worst Cooks in America has finally crowned its winner, or ‘Worst Cook’, of 2020.

The Food Network competition takes on competitors, or “recruits” as they are known on the show, who all have terrible cooking skills. They then have to compete through a culinary boot camp, impressing each week with their newly acquired skills. The final sees the two recruits who have impressed most take on the final challenge of cooking a restaurant-quality three-course meal for some food critics. Whoever impresses at the final hurdle gets a $25,000 cash prize on top of their new talents in the kitchen, so it’s a pretty good result!

The twentieth season started airing on Sunday, June 21st. There were just eight episodes this season and fourteen competitors.
