Happy to say that I don’t qualify

These PR emails seem to arrive on a regular basis — the call for entries/plea for self immolation otherwise known as the cooking-based reality show. Qualifications for this one sound fairly horrific ("Has your husband/wife told you it was probably better if you ordered take out?" Um, really?), but if you want improved cooking skills with your 15 minutes o’ fame, rock on:

Foodnetwork Are you a hopeless cook? Or is someone you know totally incompetent in the kitchen? Food Network is looking for the most disastrous cooks in the country to participate in a very different culinary competition show! This is the opportunity of a lifetime—to work with the best chefs in the country and learn to cook like a professional.  Seeking outgoing people with a genuine inability to cook, but a need and desire to improve!

NOMINATE YOURSELF
• Do your kids beg to eat out, after you’ve worked hard to make a family meal? 
• Has your husband/wife told you it was probably better if you ordered take out?
• At the big potluck dinner, are you always asked to “just bring the napkins?”

NOMINATE SOMEONE YOU KNOW**
• Is someone you know constantly offering you food that you have to turn down?
• If you know a mom who can’t scramble an egg, a colleague who can’t convince anyone to try their culinary creations, or a friend who tries but can’t seem to get it together in the kitchen, this is your chance to get them the help you BOTH need!

**Nominators: you must attend the interview with the person you nominate

HERE’S HOW TO APPLY:
• Email us at hopelesshomecook@optomenusa.com
• Tell us why you (or the person you are nominating) is the most disastrous cook in the country
• Include name, age, hometown, occupation, contact phone number, and a recent photo of the hopeless cook

    So… this is even more remedial than “How To Boil Water”?
    What are they going to call it? “How Not To Smack Yourself In The Face When Answering The Phone”?
