'Worst Cooks in America': Robin Givens gets eliminated for her poor ravioli-making skills
The celebrity was sent home after her competitor Dave Coulier managed to salvage his position in the competition with nine perfectly shaped ravioli
Five celebrity recruits remained in the competition after Brian Posehn and Sonja Morgan were eliminated from the 'Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition' kitchen over the past three weeks that the show has been on air. Chef Anne Burrell's Rocking Red Stars has Robin Givens, Wells Adams and Bridget Everett still standing in the competition, while Chef Tyler Florence's Team Blue has Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio and Dave Coulier. Tonight, viewers were treated to an Italian cuisine themed episode and at the end of it, Robin Givens stood eliminated from the competition.
Givens ended up in the bottom along with Coulier after both of them failed to impress the judges with a ravioli dish that they were asked to present for tasting. From the Rocking Red Team, both Adams and Everett presented a decent tasting pasta but Givens was the weak link tonight and her usage of gorgonzola cheese along with sweet and hot sausage didn't impress her mentor Burrell and she was nominated to be in the final cookoff. Blue Team's Coulier rustled up a good dish but he was bested by Banana whose dish was better according to their mentor, Florence.
In the final cook-off, both Givens and Coulier had to prep as many ravioli as possible in 10 minutes. Dave aced the challenge by prepping nine perfect ravioli. Givens managed to make many but only four of them were perfect while the rest had quite a few bubbles and some had ricotta cheese filling leaking through it. It was time for her to say goodbye to the kitchen, to her mentor and the rest of her friends in the competition. However, she didn't go home empty-handed but was sent away with $2500 that she could donate to a charity.
After Givens' ouster, two contestants remain in the show, all of whom have shown tremendous improvement over four weeks. Who among the four will end up in the top two and which one of them will walk away with $25,000 for their choice of charity? We will know soon.
