The Blue Team

Chef Tyler chose Ginny, Rachel, Holgie, Jeni, Ernie, Cindy and Lawrence for his team.

Cindy

Even though Cindy grew up in her family's restaurant, she never paid enough attention to pick up any cooking skills, so she's ready to give it a try in Boot Camp.

Ernie

Ernie has a passion for hunting big and small game, but he always has left the cooking of his catch to his wife or someone else. Now he's ready to give cooking a go.

Ginny

As a beauty pageant competitor, Ginny's familiar with competition, but she's accident-prone when it comes to doing anything in the kitchen. She hopes to be able to cook a real family dinner.

Holgie

Holgie has led an adventurous life, but she's never taken the time to learn how to cook, preferring to leave the chore up to her husband. Now she's ready to learn and give her husband a break.

Jeni

As a farmwife, Jeni tends animals and grows a garden, but she's probably made only three edible meals for her family in the past 25 years. She's ready to change that.

Lawrence

Military man Lawrence was trained as a combat medic, so he knows what Boot Camp is like, but learning to cook will be a completely new experience for him.

Rachel

Rachel avoids the kitchen at all costs, especially after almost starting a fire, but she wants to learn how to cook for her husband.
