'Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-off 2014' premiere: Vanilla Ice the Vegetarian, plus others

It’s hard to tell what’s worse in Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-off 2014: the food or the general display of humanity. Imagine The Celebrity Apprentice, but with a fire pit. No one can cook. Like, these people can feed their dependents, because they’re wealthy, but the skills are just not there. You are basically watching random divas fail, and flail, and fight, and then over-spice stuff. It’s hilariously awful, much like this choice quote about hosts and team leaders Guy Fieri and Rachael Ray:

“They’re like the Heisman Trophy winners of food,” said actual Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker with a straight face.

Let’s rank season 3′s eight celebrity “chefs” from least to most tolerable after tonight’s extremely unappetizing Medieval Times challenge:

Guests included other celebrity chefs — Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri — as well as comedians and television personalities, like The Today Show‘s Willie Geist.

Bourdain shot to fame with his 2000 memoir, Kitchen Confidential, which detailed his raunchy and drug-addled years in the food industry. He now hosts the popular Travel Channel shows No Reservations¬†and The Layover. But in spite of his current success — or perhaps because of it — many of the night’s guests made sure to harp on his seedy past. Chef Ted Allen joked, “[He's an] ex-chef, ex-junkie who’s made a fortune insulting his ex-industry,” and Sarah Silverman kicked off the night in a pre-taped segment by warning, “There’s gonna be a lot of great lines tonight, and you can’t snort any of them.”
