Food Network Has Removed New Season of 'Worst Cooks In America' For This Reason

Food Network has decided to pull all the content relating to the most recent season of its popular competition series, Worst Cooks In America.

The decision came after it was revealed that the champion, Ariel Robinson, was charged with the homicide of her three-year-old adopted child.

Ariel, or Ari as she went by on the show, won the $25,000 during last year’s season 20 that aired just a few months ago.

She and her husband, Jerry, were formally charged with homicide by child abuse. According to reports, it revealed that the couple had inflicted a “series of blunt force injuries” on the child.

After her win, Ariel and Jerry added three children to their family in March 2020. However, it’s not clear if one of them was the child in question.

Food Network has yet to comment on the situation, but has pulled all content related to Season 20 of the show. It is also not available on streamers Discovery+ or Hulu or their YouTube page.

One of the biggest Food Network stars just recently passed away.
