Take eight celebrity amateur chefs, two sizzling hosts and one big cook-off -- put it all on the Food Network and simmer.

Here's how Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off is going to go: Aaron Carter, Coolio, Taylor Dayne, Joey Fatone, Lou Diamond Phillips, Cheech Marin, Summer Sanders and Alyssa Campanella will be broken into teams, with Rachael Ray or Guy Fieri as their mentor.

A bunch of so-so famous wannabe chefs? See, we told you it could be a disaster, but also delicious.

Rachael Ray, who says the show is a "mash-up" of programming like "Top Chef and Dancing with the Stars," revealed in a report from the NY Daily News, "It takes your breath away. This thing is really intense. I've never played a game as intense as this one."

The famous foodie added, "It was legit and all of the challenges were horribly excruciating. Guy and I would say to each other, 'Oh, I would never do that.' Their food was really good. Their food was so good and we were knocked out."

We're not sure what Coolio would whip up in the kitchen, but word on the food circuit is that his grandmother was a big influence on his cooking.

Don't look for Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off to be manufactured. Rachael Ray said, "A lot of people complain that reality shows are overproduced and fake. This was all legit and really, really hard."

We want to hear from you. Will you be spending your Sunday nights cooking with a celebrity? (Well, at least from a TV standpoint anyway.)
