Who: Mortgage guy and dad nominated by oldest son for season 3 of "Worst Cooks in America," Sundays at 9 p.m. on the Food Network.
From: South Philly.
Big debut: His audition dish was "macaroni and cheesesteak: Steak-umms dumped in the oven with a bunch of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese."
Kitchen disaster: "Cooking was always an afterthought to me. Like, oh my God! It's dinnertime! What am I gonna do? I'd take pieces of a puzzle that didn't go together and slop em together. It didn't occur to me that it wouldn't be any good . . . "
