Zap2it: You did "Dancing With the Stars," and now you're involved in another competition with "Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off." What's the appeal of such shows for you?

With other Food Network personalities serving as guest judges, the last amateur cook standing wins $50,000 for the charity of his or her choice.
