This used to be a good show. It was interesting to see contestants replicate Anne's and Tylers dishes. Now (which I believe is due to the contestant's amateur comedy shtick's) the contestants are given food and just told to make what they want. With all the stupid cut scenes and faked kitchen disasters there seems to be no time for cooking instructions by Anne and Tyler. This show is being ruined by to much attempted comedy and not enough cooking.
The contestants come off as people interested to acting careers not just regular folks who want to learn how to cook. Which makes the show kind of phony from the getgo.
