Joey is in a celebrity cooking show called "Rachael vs Guy Celebrity Cook-Off.
Two of the world's best-known culinary personalities will lead star-studded teams of amateur cooks in a fun, fast-paced culinary fight to the finish on the new Food Network prime-time series Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off. The six-episode show is set to premiere on January 1 at 9pm ET/PT.
Emmy®-winning talk show host and Food Network icon Rachael Ray and best-selling cookbook author and successful restaurateur Guy Fieri will serve as coaches and mentors to eight multi-talented celebrities, all of whom are passionate about food and cooking. Divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy, the contestants will face intense weekly challenges that are sure to have them working, fighting and laughing as they race against the clock to prepare elaborate meals for up to 150 guests. The winning and losing teams will be chosen by the guest diners — and between two bottom-rated contestants from the losing team, one member will be sent home each week. The last celebrity standing at the end of the season will win a cash donation to his or her favorite charity.
"What do you get when you combine me, Guy, eight celebrities and industrial stoves? You'll have to wait and see, but I can say it's hot times in the city and on the set. What a blast — these pros are from all different fields and they are cooking up a storm for dozens, even hundreds of judges, daily," said Rachael.
"I'm absolutely psyched to work on this show. Rachael and I have been friends for years and being able to work with her in this capacity for the first time is a blast. It's also great to see the celebrity contestants so excited about food and putting themselves out there," said Guy. "There is some serious competition among them to win for their favorite charities and the action is nonstop."
