The Food Network is currently looking for people to apply for two different new reality cooking shows.
Food Network is looking for the most disastrous 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. We’re seeking outgoing people with a genuine inability to cook, but a need and desire to improve!
They say you can nominate yourself or someone else for this show. However, if you’re going to nominate someone else, you must attend the interview with that person if they are chosen.
The site to apply for the show can be found at hopelesshomecook.wordpress.com and they have three upcoming open casting calls (unfortunately I found this too late to warn the New Yorkers of the August 9th open call) within the next week!
Charlotte, NC: Saturday, August 16, 2008
Denver, CO: Sunday, August 17, 2008
Los Angeles, CA: Sunday, August 24, 2008
And the second show which Food Network is seeking applicants is much more vague. They’re only looking for professional chefs for this one. It seems to be a four-person culinary competition that is timed. The application can be found here.
Best of luck to any who decide to apply!
