About the show
Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition: That’s so 90's will feature celebrities who were household names in the 90’s era of television but do not have any achievements in the kitchen. They will be put to the test by the judges who will train them from scratch. The winner will receive $25,000 for their charity while the team leader will get bragging rights.
The official synopsis of Worst Cooks In America Celebrity Edition Season 24 reads:
"In the new season, Anne Burrell is joined for the first time by Jeff Mauro to transform a roster of retro celebrity recruits from clueless in the kitchen to totally rad cooks. While these recruits were Hollywood darlings on television in the 90s, they never won anyone over with their cooking – so Anne and Jeff guide them through a series of rigorous challenges to improve their culinary game."
