The eight celebrities were divided into Team Rachael and Team Guy and competed in a series of culinary challenges that test their cooking, marketing and performing skills. This season, team Rachael includes celebrities Judy Gold, Florence Henderson, Penn Jillette and Jake Pavelka and team Guy is Chris Kattan, Tiffany, Vanilla Ice and Hershel Walker.
In the season premiere, the eight contestants were required to prepare a Medieval feast and "perform for a stadium full of hungry spectators" in 90 minutes.
Joining Ray and Fieri, was special guest judge for Chef Lee Anne Wong to determine who did make the first cut. Despite injuries on both sides, Gold cutting her finger and Henderson's foot injury, both teams managed to make their meal under the time limit.
Wong called both teams strong, but in the end, awarded Tiffany for her superb pork sliders. Despite the win being award to team Fieri, no contestant was eliminated.
Previous winners Lou Diamond Phillips and Dean McDermott; $50,000 will be donated to the charity of their choice.
"Let me tell you something, Rachael and I, are two of the most competitive people I know," Fieri said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "Season 3 of Rachael vs. Guy means rubber match. Rachael won the first round, and I took the second. This one is for all the pasta in Italy."
"As I've said since season one of this show, it is both the most nerve-racking and the most exciting project I've ever been a part of, and this season is no relief," Ray said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "It is intense - intense fun and intense stress - in each and every episode as all of these celebrities play with knives and fire all for the sake of the charities that they love."
The third season of "Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off," premiered Jan. 6 at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.
