When Cari and I used to watch Survivor regularly, we’d both manage to get about three minutes into any episode before realizing that we could never, ever go on the show. No way, now how. It was fun to watch, but that’s as close as we wanted to get to the show.
I have a new favorite reality TV show, and it’s one that I would love to go on:
Worst Cooks In America is on Food Network once a week. The cooks are trained to cook and go through a couple challenges each week, and one cook from each team gets voted off — usually after failing miserably at creating a meal with no help from the professional chefs.
The reason I want to go on Worst Cooks In America? Two reasons, actually:
- I could win! I’m not a great cook by any means, but I’m much more comfortable in the kitchen than these folks are. They’re hysterical to watch. And this is probably the only reality show on TV that I could actually win.
- I would really learn how to make amazing meals! I’m pretty average. I can cook a few meals and do an adequate job with meats or pasta or something like chicken fajitas. But I have no clue what seasonings, spices and extra ingredients I could be using to make the meals I cook really phenomenal. I would love to learn stuff like that.
Problem is, I’d never get accepted. If you look at some of the nasty meals from auditions, you can see how bad these people are when they’re picked. I don’t think I could purposely make something that looks that bad. So … I guess I’ll just keep being an average cook who enjoys the show from the comfort of the couch.
