Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off pits celebrity teams against each other

Johnny Weir, a three-time US National Champion and two-time Olympian in figure skating, will be taking his competitive skills from the ice rink to the kitchen.
Weir, who is openly gay, is one of eight celebrities set to face off in Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off. Previews of the show show him kissing fellow competitor, actor Dean McDermmot but it's not know the context of the kiss. McDermott is married to Tori Spelling.
Hosts Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri, who headline other popular Food Network shows, lead the teams of celebrities as they battle for culinary glory and a sizable donation to the charity of their choice.
Weir and McDermott are members of 'Team Guy' which also includes singer, dancer and actress Chilli is best known as one-third of the R&B/hip-hop group TLC and designer, author and philanthropist Cornelia Guest.
'Team Rachael consists of singer Carnie Wilson, actress Kathy Najimy, comedian Gilbert Gottfried, and former NFL player Hines Ward who is a two-time Super Bowl champion.
The show will have its season premiere on 6 January.
This is not Weir's first foray into reality show. He stars in the show Be Good Johnny Weir which airs on the Logo channel.
He and husband, Victor Voronov, celebrated their one year anniversary on 30 December.

I think it's kind of a shame that he's being referred to as "gay figure skating champ" when his sexual orientation is the least of the things Wei twot-ime Olympian, maybe?

I don't see straight athletes being called "straight" in headlines, so that kinda pisses me off.

What else pisses me off is that I love cooking shows and cooking competitions but I cannot/will not watch this one because Rachel and Guy are the two most obnoxious people who've ever darkened a TV screen

Bob - tell us how your really feel. Don't hold back. ;)
I agree about adding 'gay' for any out personally but it does help the cause a bit. I watched last year and it was okay but I like a lot of this season's cast so will give it a go.

Can't stand Weir. He strikes me as a pissy, stuck up queen. The kind that makes my skin crawl. Get real, you live in New Jersey bitch!
