Rachael Vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off Season 2 Cast Announced

Rachael Vs Guy Celebrity Cook Off Season 2
The Food Network has put out a press release announcing the cast for season 2 of Rachael Vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, and the 8 person cast for this season is:
  • Chilli (member of pop/R&B group TLC)
  • Gilbert Gottfried (actor, comedian)
  • Cornelia Guest (designer, author, philanthropist)
  • Dean McDermott (actor, reality television star)
  • Kathy Najimy (actress, Sister Act)
  • Hines Ward (former NFL player; Super Bowl Champion and MVP)
  • Carnie Wilson (singer, Wilson Phillips)
  • Johnny Weir (two-time Olympic Figure Skater, three-time U.S. National Champion).

So get ready for another season of the train-wreck show filled with unintentional comedy from 'celebrities' (that term should be used very loosely.)  I love how when referring to Kathy Najimy, they reference Sister Act, which came out over 20 years ago, and the only person people probably recognize from that movie is Whoopie Goldberg.

The show is scheduled to premiere Sunday, January 6th at 9pm on Food Network and will only be a 6-episode season.  Looking forward to see if anyone is as skilled as season 1 winner Lou Diamond Phillips?

In Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the contestants are divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy, as they face intense weekly challenges that are sure to have them working, fighting and laughing along the way.

The last celebrity standing at the end of the season wins bragging rights and a cash donation to their favorite charity. Season one winner was Lou Diamond Phillips for Team Rachael.

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


  1. Yeah, I'll be skipping this again this year. These are two of my least favorite FN personalities. 

  2. I want Rachel to win again! GO TEAM RACHEL!!

  3. I think it is really funny that Dean who left his wife and child for Tori (thinking i'm sure his careerwould take off) now ends up on a cooking show. Guess it's better than following Tori around. Oh yes perhaps he can get some tips from his first wife who is a chef...
