Fox has given a series order to “My Kitchen Rules,” a new celebrity cooking competition show. The eight-episode series will pit celebrity duos against each other as they take turns hosting dinner parties where their food will be tasted by judges and former competitors.
Curtis Stone (“Top Chef Masters”) and Cat Cora (“Iron Chef America”) will serve as judges. Celebrity contestants will include Lance Bass, R&B recording artists Brandy and Ray J, comedian Andrew Dice Clay, country musician Naomi Judd and reality TV star Brandi Glanville. The series will feature escalating rounds of competition, in which the celebrity duo with the lowest score at the end of each round will be eliminated. The last two teams left standing will compete in a final round of competition.
No premiere date has been set for the show.
