"Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off" Season 3 on Food Network is a cooking competition series in which the Emmy-winning talk show host Rachael Ray and successful restaurateur Guy Fieri square off against each other for culinary bragging rights as they coach and mentor the eight multi-talented celebrities.

The eight celebrities are divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy as they compete over six episodes in a variety of culinary challenges, testing their cooking, marketing and performing skills along the way. New to this season, each episode features a special Food Network guest judge who will determine which celebrity is sent home. The last one left standing wins bragging rights as they join past season winners Lou Diamond Phillips and Dean McDermott, and $50,000 to the charity of their choice.

In the Season 3 premiere, the eight celebrities arrive in New York City as Rachael and Guy select their teams. Judy Gold (actress, comedienne), Florence Henderson (actress, singer), Penn Jillette (magician, comedian) and Jake Pavelka (reality star, "The Bachelor") join Team Rachael; with Chris Kattan (comedian, actor), Tiffany (singer, actress), Vanilla Ice (pop icon, rapper and star of DIY Network's "The Vanilla Ice Project" and "Vanilla Ice Goes Amish") and Herschel Walker (former NFL player, Heisman Trophy winner) joining Team Guy. For their first cook-off challenge, the celebrities get right to work as they only have 90 minutes to prepare a Medieval feast and perform for a stadium full of hungry spectators. Special guest judge, Chef Lee Anne Wong, joins Rachael and Guy to determine which dish does not make the cut.

Throughout the season the celebrities test their culinary chops against each other in fun but demanding challenges, guaranteed to have them working, fighting and laughing along the way. Whether it's creating a Hawaiian-inspired meal for a Luau party; shopping, creating and marketing their own food products; or going head-to-head in a chicken wing cook-off, with special guest judges Alex Guarnaschelli ("Chopped") and Josh Elliott of "Good Morning America," these celebrities are up for the challenge. And in the finale, the remaining competitors must prepare a three-course meal aboard a cruise ship, with special guest judges Sunny Anderson, Scott Conant and Aarón Sánchez among others, deciding who will become Cook-Off champion.

"Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off" is produced by Jane Street Entertainment.
