'Worst Cooks in America': Sonja Morgan's toaster antics and Johnny Bananas's bartending skills win hearts
Fans wonder how Wells Adams 'bamboozled' his way into the show
The new season of the celebrity-led edition of 'Worst Cooks in America' premiered its first episode on May 10. Robin Givens, Sonja Morgan, Wells Adams, Dave Coulier, Bridget Everett, Brian Posehn and Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio are the seven contestants battling it out to take the title home and a cash prize of $25,000 for their choice of charity.
If Sunday night's shenanigans are anything to go by, viewers are expecting to witness a wild season and they seemed to have picked favorites. Sonja Morgan bringing in a toaster over to the show and claiming to cook a turkey in it every day was an amusing sight. Cut to her going ahead and attempting to cook a huge rack of lamb inside it, she had the chef and hosts Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence worried but the audiences at home were having a gala time seeing her antics.
"Sonja Morgan's straight-up refusal to cook food in anything other than a toaster oven has me howling #WorstCooks," wrote a fan.
Another tweeted, "Sonja Morgan on Worst Cooks Celebrity edition on Food Network using only a toaster oven is the gift that keeps on giving. You’re welcome."
Johnny Bananas might not be a great cook, one of the reasons he's on the show. But he surely did exhibit a lot of pizzazz with his flambe skills and the one where he tried to salt his dish in Salt Bae style. He also used some of his bartending skills on the show to help himself as well as his fellow contestants ease out the stress of the competition.
"@johnnybananas was absolutely amazing on Worst cooks in America tonight. I’ll watch anything he’s on. #worstcooksinamerica," wrote a Banana's fan after the episode aired.
Another tweeted, "@johnnybananas on Worst Cooks in America is EVERYTHING I didn’t know I needed! Knives and flames everywhere. #choochooo"
Wells Adams who is also 'Modern Family' star Sarah Hyland's fiance is also on the show and fans expressed their disappointment about it. According to them, Adams's can cook well and this proves that the show is rigged.
"I follow Wells Adam on Instagram & know he can cook so I'm really confused as to why @WellsAdams is on worst cooks in America celebrity edition? Which just confirms what we already know about the show... But I will still watch," read a tweet.
"Why is @WellsAdams on Worst Cooks in America? I call bullshit. I’ve seen Cooking with Wells. This man can def cook," wrote another fan.
"How did you bamboozle your way on to “worst cooks in America”? I’ve seen cooking with Wells, you have talent!" wrote another.
'Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition' returns next Sunday at 9|8c on Food Network.
