The "Snooki & JWOWW" alum will be slicing, dicing and possibly flambéing in her pursuit of victory on tonight's Season 7 premiere of the Food Network's "The Worst Cooks in America." But can celebrity food virtuosos Rachael Ray and Anne Burrell turn the self-described "lazy" cook and her competitors -- Barry Williams, Chris Soules, Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White and Kendra Wilkinson -- into kitchen wizards? JWOWW sure hopes so.
"I just want to expand my cooking abilities. I find it to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be working under Anne and Rachael, and that’s just freaking awesome. Like, nobody really gets to say that," the Jersey girl said in a Q&A for the show.
What will Meilani’s mama earn if she

The hopeful chef shared an on-set moment with her Twitter followers, asking fans for support: "Worst Cooks in America Celeb edition premieres tomorrow nite @9pm ET on @FoodNetwork! R u gonna tune in? #worstcooks"
