Poor Mario. Rachael isn't one of my favorite personalities on Food Network. Regardless, I look forward to watching it. I'm a fan of ICA, and it will be interesting to see the Iron Chefs working with others not normally their sous chefs.

i find it interesting that they had to team up. too many/too big egos to take a loss? i'm sure their agents were involved. who's gonna buy a cookbook or kitchen gadgets from a loser?
it shows that giada and rr are not real chefs, but tv personalities with cooking backgrounds.

I read that Giada De Laurentiis has a culinary degree and used to own or work for a catering company. As far as I know, Rachel Ray doesn't have any professional background. You would've thought that they'd team up Mario with Giada instead because of the similar Italian background. Mario's going to want to make fresh pasta and Rachel will be busting out the Golden Grain and Prego.

Giada is the granddaughter of movie director Gino de Laurentis. mish could probably rattle off the names of all his movies, but I can't think of one right now.

I love Alton Brown on his own show, but I utterly dispise amercan versions of foreign TV Shows. (such as Iron Chef America) ICK!!

What was the big accident that Rachel Rey have during filming though? I saw the ad for ET but missed the show.
