Celebrity Cook Off
Oh dear Lord, foodnetwork, I thought you couldn't sink lower than "The Worst Cook in America." But no... while watching NIC, I was treated to multiple ads for the new foodnetwork show "Celebrity Cookoff." In case you missed it, this is a show hosted by both Guy Fieri and Rachael Ray. They "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." These celebtestants include: Miss USA, Cheech Marin, Coolio, Aaron Carter, Lou Diamond Phillips, Summer Sanders, and Joey Fatone (among others). I think though, it might be like a car wreck.... I won't be able to bring myself to look away.
+1 I don't see it happening though. They seem to have decided to move away from that and go for entertaining the lowest possible denominator. If it will get someone's attention (good or bad) they'll air it. Their target audience doesn't care about REAL cooking and techniques and recipes beyond store bought angel food cake and canned frosting. They just want gimmicky entertainment
