In January of 2012, cooking is going to another level with a brand new celebrity cooking competition for The Food Network! Hosted and mentored by Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri, eight of the biggest names and most interesting personalities from TV, movies, sports and music will compete in an all-out culinary competition and flex their cooking chops to win a ton of cash for their favorite charity! In each episode, guests will decide who the winning and losing teams are at each event, as well as the bottom two celebrities on the losing team. These bottom two celebs will take part in a blind taste-testing challenge where either Rachael or Guy will be the judge. Each week a different star will be eliminated and in the end, one will be crowned the king or queen of the ultimate celebrity cook-off!
