Worst Cooks in America Season 17 episode 5 preview: Viva Mexico!


In this episode of Worst Cooks in America, the recruits head south of the border. Which return will spice up their mole and who will be sent packing?

Worst Cooks in America isn’t taking a vacation this week, but the recruits are getting some Mexican inspired cooking lessons. While the recruits might want to take out their cooking frustrations on those pinatas, they better start mixing up some big flavors.

According to Food Network, the synopsis of “Viva Mexico!” episode states:

"The recruits return to boot camp and find themselves south of the border. Things start with a game where the recruits must smash pinatas filled with various ingredients before making their own tostadas. Next, chefs Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay teach them how to make a mole dish for the main dish challenge. Those who can’t master their mole will be asked to leave."

Looking at the first challenge, the recruits should be able to make a decent tostada. Given how much these cooks have learned, this challenge should now be in their wheelhouse.

As for the main challenge, the recruits will need to listen and learn. Making a mole is no easy task. It will be curious to see how the recruits make a mole in a limited amount of time.

Additionally, it will be interesting to see how both Anne and Bobby approach this challenge. Bobby is known for his Mexican inspired dishes and his flavorful sauces. He could go traditional or untraditional in his approach.

With last week’s elimination of Sadie and Karma, it will be curious to see which recruits make it into the final four. Personally, I’m pulling for Father Adam, but he needs to be a little bolder in the kitchen. Plus, his food could be blessed.
