Premise: Rachael Ray returns to test her mentoring ability against Anne Burrell as nine famous faces enter the ``Worst Cooks in America'' boot camp to try to become the season's most improved cook. With an odd number of celebrities, one doesn't make the cut when the mentors choose their teams after assessing the recruits' skills. Among the celebrities entering the kitchen are former ``Facts of Life'' actress Mindy Cohn, ``I Dream of Jeannie'' star Barbara Eden, comedian John Henson, ``Jersey Shore'' alum Mike ``The Situation'' Sorrentino and former ``MADtv'' cast member Nicole Sullivan. Up for grabs for the culinary-challenged celebs is a $50,000 donation to the winner's charity of choice and, of course, bragging rights for their mentor as Burrell goes for a fourth-straight winning season.
