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.

"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.
