On this week’s Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Chopped judge Alex Guarnaschelli visits the set to challenge the kid chefs to a Chopped challenge. You guessed it! They will have to cook with mystery baskets. But what terrifies the kids more than just the cooking is having to impress Alex, who also happens to be an Iron Chef.

It’s off to Coney Island on Monday’s upcoming episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, which has the celebrities cooking on the boardwalk in two challenges. First, a french fry-off will determine who gains an advantage in the second challenge, which involves iconic New York hot dog carts. In a sneak peek photo from the episode, mentor Rachael stops by to help Florence cook up some fries. The two share a moment that has them completely cracking up.
Who do you think cracked up whom? And what could they be laughing at? Does Florence have a funny tactic that she’s willing to employ in order to win the advantage? It sure looks like they’re having fun times at the fryer. Maybe it’s an inside joke?
On Monday’s upcoming episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the celebrities must cater a cocktail party with a Hawaiian luau theme. Chopped judge Marc Murphy stops by to taste the dishes, offer his critique, and, most importantly announce the winning team and the MVP of the challenge. In this sneak peek photo from the episode, Vanilla Ice from Team Guy presents his dish for tasting, but Guy has a moment where he holds his head and Rachael giggles while she takes a sampling of the food.
Did someone say something funny or just plain corny? It is, after all, a Hawaiian-themed party, so the celebrities are taking the theme to heart with dishes that play up that fact. But Ice is also known to break out with a rhyme on the fly. Did he put a silly spin on his dish?
Before you tune in this Monday at 9pm/8c, we’re challenging you, Rachael vs. Guy fans, to write your best captions or rhymes (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.
This season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off puts the celebrity contestants in different situations every episode with challenges that test their culinary know-how. This past episode had the celebrities serving out of food trucks. But the next challenge will have the two remaining finalists cooking a dinner for VIPs.
In the above sneak-peek photo, Dean and Carnie are taking a moment’s respite after serving their dinner guests. It appears Dean is talking to Carnie about something, but Carnie is interjecting and pointing. But what is Dean saying? Why is Carnie interrupting? Did someone have a point to prove? Did the two have a disagreement?
This season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off puts the celebrity contestants in different situations every episode with challenges that test a certain aspect of their culinary know-how. This past episode tested their skills at a party they catered for kids. But the next challenge will test their ability to serve a hungry lunch crowd in a limited amount of time, which may be more challenging for some than for others. Their dishes must meet the lunchtime standard and be served promptly and with care to customers.
In the above sneak-peek photo, Kathy from Team Rachael and Dean from Team Guy are taking a break and chatting with Rachael. It appears Dean took a camera photo of the three of them and is now showing the result to the ladies. But what is he saying? What is Kathy saying? Why is Rachael pointing at Kathy? Did someone forget to smile or make a funny face in the photo?
This season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off puts the celebrity contestants in different situations every episode with challenges that test a certain aspect of their culinary know-how. This past episode tested their adaptability in a diner with reinventing classic sandwiches. But there’s even more pressure in the next challenge, which will test their ability to cook for some pretty picky eaters. Every recipe must meet a certain expectation if they want to survive another week.
In the above sneak-peek photo, Hines and Carnie from Team Rachael are cooking for the challenge. It appears Hines has got whatever he’s making under control, but then Carnie butts in. Or is Hines asking Carnie for help?
This season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off takes the celebrity contestants to different places every challenge. In the first episode, the celebrities had it easy in the theater. The second episode had them far out of their element on a farm. But the third episode finds the contestants in a venue that’s pretty familiar for Guy.
In the above sneak-peek photo it appears Rachael and Guy are discussing the dishes in front of them, when all of a sudden they’re distracted by something. Whatever it is, it’s enough to draw a look from Guy and crack up Rachael. What did someone say to Rachael and Guy? What did Guy say in response? Will the teams be able to handle the challenge or will they give up?
This season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off takes the celebrity contestants to all different places for each challenge. Last Sunday the competition started out on the red carpet, moved to the kitchen and then ended at the theater. For this Sunday’s episode, things are a bit more down to earth than that.
In the above sneak-peek photo it appears that the remaining members of Team Rachael are pinning something onto a scarecrow. What could they be doing in the next challenge that has them looking so perplexed? Will the team step up to the challenge or will the new location trip them up?
On last Sunday’s episode of The Next Iron Chef, the remaining rivals packed up their knife kits and flew east to Sin City after five weeks of challenges and showdowns in Los Angeles. For the chefs, the move to Las Vegas proved to be a turning point in the competition, a sign that they are one step closer to claiming the only title that matters.
For Alton Brown, however, the move to Vegas was an opportunity to dabble in matchmaking — ingredient matchmaking, that is. With an altar of savory delicacies and sweet confections, he created a series of odd pairs like squid and marshmallows, chicken livers and peppermint candies, and bone marrow and fruit candies, which forced the rivals to think beyond the ordinary and create harmonious marriages out of culinary confusion.
Looking ahead to this week’s episode and the sneak-peek image above, it may seem as though Alton is once again experimenting with something new: flying. It turns out, however, that he is a frequent flier, and not just in the passenger sense. For more than 10 years, he’s been operating his own private airplane and only relies on commercial flights when there’s no other option.
After last week’s doozy of a Secret Ingredient Showdown in which Chefs Spike Mendelsohn and Marcel Vigneron threw caution to the wind and presented to the judges as The Next Iron Chef‘s first-ever alliance, some fans may be ready for a return to Redemption normalcy, or at least some semblance of predictability. But with just six finalists remaining and the Chairman’s dreaded ingredient auction looming, the competition is just heating up and the next episodes will be the most-shocking yet as the chefs are faced with do-or-die challenges and last chances for success.
No stranger to either high or low moments of The Next Iron Chef, host Alton has witnessed all of the most-unforgettable moments in Kitchen Stadium and surely knows what the rivals should — and should not — be thinking, doing and cooking at this stage of their journey. In the above sneak-peek shot from Sunday’s new episode, Alton seems to have pulled Chef Nate Appleman aside to share a quick bit of information intended for his ears only. What do you think Alton is dishing about in his one-on-one chat with Chef Nate? Where are the other rivals, and why aren’t they privy to what Alton has to say?
Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to watch what happens next, we’re challenging you, Next Iron Chef fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this secretive moment in the comments below.
