This TV show is encouraging and uplifting. It has all of the intrigue that comes with good reality TV with much less of the catty drama that comes with some shows. It's lovely to follow along on a journey as the contestants go from burning food, setting kitchens on fire, and giving loved ones food poisoning to being able to prepare and eat food that will awe professional cooks. It is also lovely to get to know all of the contestants, and watch them develop their own personal styles of cooking. For the most part, it's easy to predict who will be eliminated every show, but that doesn't make it less of a joy to watch. Anne Burrell grows into her role as a teacher, and it's clear to see the affection she has for her contestants each season.

Love how they find people who are the worst cooks in America. Then teach them how to cook meals that they would have never made. Also teach them how to have fun with making a healthy meal for friends n family can't wait for a new season to come out
