Worst Cooks Exit Interview: Eric Ricupero
Why did you need or want to be on Worst Cooks in America?
I need to learn how to cook in order eat healthier and save money. Eating out 10 times a week in killing both my pocket and waistline.
What was the most valuable tip/piece of advice that you learned from Chef Robert?
Preparation and organization – it makes everything else easier.
I am not only a bad cook, but apparently I'm also a bad cooking student.
Will you continue to work on your culinary skills?
I will continue to work on my cooking and using what I learned on the show should help.
If you could have a do-over of the challenge that sent you home, what would you do differently?
I wouldn't have cut out the bone of a bone-in chicken breast.
When you presented your final dish, Chef Robert’s Pan-Seared Chicken Breast, how did you feel about it?
I knew I'd blown it when I cut the bone out.
What advice would you give to future Worst Cooks competitors?
Listen, remember and be patient.
What was the first dish or meal that you attempted to cook back at home after being eliminated? How did it go?
I tried to cook that bone-in chicken breast. I blew it again.
What was your most memorable or funniest moment while shooting the show?
Anytime Joshie and Priscilla had an argument.
