In the finale on September 23rd at 9PM, the single contestant who reveals the most magnificent culinary transformation will be awarded $25 grand.
"Anne and Robert are fiercely competitive and our viewers are sure to enjoy their boot camp reunion," said Courtney White, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Programming, Food Network and HGTV. "These Worst Cooks competitors are hilariously inept when they arrive, and their journey toward kitchen excellence is a fun ride."
