Team Leader: Chef Bobby Flay

Bobby Flay can throw down with America's best chefs, but how will he fare with a team of eight hopeless cooks?

Melissa Rhodes (Naples, Fla.)

Melissa struggled with anorexia for six years and constantly battles her fear of food and the image reflected in the mirror. Boot camp is the last stop on her road to recovery and she hopes it will give her the confidence to cook healthy food and return the joy to eating.

Vinnie Caligiuri (Jenkintown, Pa.)

This Philadelphia guy is outgoing and fun-loving and wants to spearhead a tradition of Sunday night dinners, though his sons — and the dogs — will not eat his food. Vinnie’s wife has overcome breast cancer, which has emphasized the importance of family time, and he hopes that his learning to cook will create the family quality time he craves.

Benjamin Dennis (Frisco, Texas)

Benjamin is a stay-at-home dad who is responsible for preparing healthy meals for his family while his wife works 10-hour days as a nurse. This “Mr. Mom” needs to ditch his obsession with spicy foods and takeout and learn to cook for the sake of his family’s health, as his son, who has autistic tendencies, recently has been prescribed a gluten-free diet.

Erica Weidner (Long Beach, New York)

Erica enjoys cooking with unusual kitchen tools, such as razorblades and pliers, and considers food expiration dates to be mere suggestions. She needs considerable assistance in order to avoid harming herself in the kitchen and to keep her family safe from her meals.

Libby Floyd (Minneapolis)

Libby is a Southern belle who sells kitchen tools and appliances on live television. Her husband, who has sworn to never eat her food again, finds it ironic that Libby does not know how to use the products that she sells. Hopefully, boot camp will teach Libby about those supplies.

Sarina Weeraprajuk (West Covina, Calif.)

Sarina's family has taken care of her and cooked all of her meals her entire life. This wedding photographer believes that her lack of cooking knowledge is keeping her longtime boyfriend from proposing and hopes that boot camp will help her grow up and finally get engaged.

Sherrill Moss-Solomon (New York)

Sherrill’s perception of her cooking skills is a bit skewed; she was shocked to learn her husband had nominated her for Worst Cooks in America. In fact, she believes that she deserves her own cooking show. She enjoys being creative with her recipes, though they never result in a good outcome, causing her husband to avoid coming home for dinner. This delusional diva needs some professional kitchen training.

Tiffany Michelle (Los Angeles)

Tiffany is tired of being the outcast in her family of exceptional cooks. She is a professional poker player and thrives in the face of competition, having won over $1 million in her career. She hopes to garner just as much success in the kitchen.
