Mexican-American comedic actor Cheech Marin is going to be one of the contestants in the Food Network’s latest reality series, “Rachael vs Guy Celebrity Cook-Off”. The star will be competing for $50,000 to aid the charity he will be supporting.
Marin, who is widely known for his part in the comedy act “Cheech and Chong”, will be competing with other major stars including Aaron Carter, Lou Diamond Phillips, Summer Sanders, and Joey Fatone. Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri will serve as coaches and mentors to the famous participants as they square off against one another in various challenges.
The first installment of the series will have the two celebrity judges select their teams and face off in a challenge where they must create an original dish for 150 people at the Celebrity Cook-Off Food Festival. Afterwards, attendees will vote for the team with the best food.
Hopefully, Marin will bring some Mexican flavor to the reality series and be crowned king of the Celebrity Cook-Off. The series is set to premiere on Sunday, January 1st at 9p.m.
