A group of cooking-challenged 1990s celebrities will head to the kitchen to serve up nostalgia and nearly-edible food in the upcoming season of Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition: That’s So ‘90s.
Premiering next month, People reports, ‘Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition: That’s So ‘90s’ will follow hosts Anne Burrell and Food Network star Jeff Mauro as they attempt to turn the ‘90s television stars into better cooks, with the winner taking home $25,000 for the charity of their choice.
The cast will include stars from 1990s TV hits such as All That, Full House and California Dreams, as well as Mark Long, who got his start on the original season of Road Rules in 1995 and continues to appear on MTV’s The Challenge spin-offs.
“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,” the show’s press release reads. “From a short-order diner relay to superhero-themed obstacle course, the challenges are wilder and more outrageous than ever.”
