Two of Food Network’s most popular personalities, Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri, are going head-to-head in a new series, Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off. Both Rachael and Guy serve as coaches and mentors to eight multi-talented celebrities, ranging from an Olympic gold medalist to Grammy-winning artists to a Golden Globe-nominated actor — contestants who are all passionate about food and cooking.

Food Network recently caught up with Guy to talk about the show and Team Guy on Twitter and Facebook.

@Rbrittenham: What are you going to do to make your team stand out? What will set you apart?
GF: I want them to be individually creative and do their best.

@jcaonguyen: Which celebrity had no cooking experience at all prior to being on the show?
GF: All had some sort of experience, but I can’t give away insider info. You’ll be surprised just how strong they really are.

@sometimes2kind: At any point did you want to jump in and help your team?
GF: At any point? At ANY point? At every point. I’m still stressed about it.

Nicolas Christian Lopez: Guy, what’s your strategy against the 30 minute-meal queen?
GF: There’s really no strategy. We didn’t have enough awareness of the celebrities’ culinary experience to have a strategy ahead of time, but we knew Rachael would bring it, so we knew we had to go big, too.

Philesha Evans: Which “celebri-chef” are you most looking forward to working with on the cook-off?
GF: I’m a big fan of Coolio, Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns) and Cheech Marin (Cheech and Chong!). If these three dudes can cook as talented as they are, this should be interesting.

Sherissa Gonzales Go: Did you really get to choose the celebrities on your team?
GF: Yep. It was just like picking a team for kickball in elementary school.

Damita Johnson: How are you going to motivate and inspire your team to win as many challenges as possible?
GF: I’m going to have them push their culinary limits and not play it safe. This was the time, this was the moment — it was go big or go home, literally.
