Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri Host Celebrity Cook-Off

Aaron Carter and Joey Fatone, among others, will show off their cooking skills

Food Network stars Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri are hosting a new Celebrity Apprentice-like cooking show which puts eight (mostly) throwback celebs in one kitchen. The show is called Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off, and it premieres January 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Lucky contestants include 90's pop stars Aaron Carter (who is now sporting a goatee) and Joey Fatone (still sporting his goatee), as well as Coolio, Cheech Marin, and Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella.

Ray and Fieri will coach the budding chefs, who are "divided into ‘Team Rachael’ and ‘Team Guy,' [and] each episode features celebrity contestants battling it out in a fun, fast-paced culinary fight-to-the-finish," according to a press release. The winner gets $50,000 for the charity of their choice.

We're expecting a couple of tantrums and cut fingers, since the trailer features some contestants falling to the floor. Also notable: Coolio claims he's "the ghetto gourmet, baby," Joey Fatone says, "Dessertalicious," and for some odd reason there's a piñata.
