Just when the recruits are starting to adjust to the stresses of Worst Cooks in America Boot Camp and the expectations that come with each Skill Drill and Main Dish Challenge, Chefs Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay are ready to throw a twist into their list of already tricky demands. On Sunday, for the first time, the mentors will leave the kitchen during the Skill Drill while the recruits prep homemade gelato, which will be subject to a blind tasting. This means that the competitors will be wholly alone in their efforts this week, as they won't have the security of nearby coaches or the opportunity to defend their dishes as they're tasted.

Given the sneak-peek image above from Sunday's all-new episode, it seems as though both Chefs Anne and Bobby are left stunned — and not in a good way — with what chilly treats their team members have scooped for them. Here, both mentors look with confusion and perhaps pure horror at the icy concoction before them, but since it's a blind tasting, they can't tell whose recruit is responsible for this dessert meltdown. Do you think the chefs will be able to guess based on flavor and presentation who prepared this plate, and if so, who's most likely to have crafted this unsuccessful confection?

Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to find out who churns the best and worst batches of gelato, we’re challenging you, Worst Cooks in America fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this taste-test moment in the comments below.
