Johnny Weir is revolting, which may actually work in his favor on Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.
On the Food Network competition series kicking off Sunday at 9/8c, the world champion figure skater once again neglects to play it safe and listen to his coach's advice. He joins TLC's Chilli, Dean McDermott and Cornelia Guest on Team Guy Fieri, who are vying against Team Rachael Ray's Gilbert Gottfried, Kathy Najimy, Hines Ward and Carnie Wilson. At the end of the competition, the winner will earn bragging rights as well as a $50,000 grand prize for the charity of their choice.

William Levy's 6-year-old son, Christopher, was inconsolable. The minute Dancing With the Stars ended, Levy made his way through the throng of dancers, stars and judges congratulating the new champ, football star Donald Driver, to get to his son. Levy picked him up, rubbing his back and talking to him quietly, trying to explain that daddy was not a loser, but rather, "that we were all winners," says Levy.
Kym Johnson and David Arquette
Kym Johnson has two Mirrorball trophies, but this is the first time the Dancing with the Stars pro is trying to defend her title. She sat out the 10th season after winning with Donny Osmond, but Johnson, who won last season with Hines Ward, is still very much in the running on Season 13 with David Arquette. "I would love to defend. That would be incredible to win back to back," she tells TVGuide.com. "But honestly I don't really think about that. We've got a long road to go before I can even consider it." After landing in the actual bottom two on the second week, the pair has been steadily improving and Johnson believes they can win it all. But what do they need to go all the way? Plus: Get Johnson's take on the Maks-Len fracas...

How happy are we that, despite the latest round of apocalyptic predictions, the world didn't end last weekend. Although for Oprah Winfrey fans, the week that followed probably felt like the End of Days. It was also the End of Season — which comes as a bit of a relief, although TV didn't take even a day's rest before launching the summer season with the premiere of a personal fave, Fox's So You Think You Can Dance.
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson
You'd think that after winning a marathon as grueling as Dancing With The Stars, the winner would be thinking about lounging on a beach somewhere, sipping fruity drinks with little umbrellas. Not Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Hines Ward. The newly crowned Season 12 winner is thinking about summer football practice, the next football season — and having surgery...
Yes, Kirstie Alley got the lowest scores of the evening. And no, she didn't have a marching band like Hines Ward or do death-defying lifts like Chelsea Kane. But she still has a very strong shot at winning Dancing With the Stars.
Why? Because the studio audience — usually a very accurate barometer of viewers as a whole — wasn't just a little upset with her scores for Monday nights' samba and freestyle (a total of 54 out of 60), they were thoroughly ticked ...
Kirstie Alley, Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane
Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars may be touted as one of the closest ever, but 52 percent of TVGuide.com readers think Hines Ward will run away with the Mirrorball trophy come Tuesday night. Still, that doesn't mean we can count out fan favorite Kirstie Alley and Disney young'un Chelsea Kane, who along with the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, make up the top-scoring couples of the season.
"This season has been so up and down. There have been so many people on top of the leader board. I think it's really going to come down to who the audience wants to see," Ward's partner, Kym Johnson, says. "All three are such different personalities and such different styles. This one is totally up in the air, I think. You just don't know."
Dancing's Maks: Making the finals would mean validation
The trio will face off Monday with a repeat dance, a judges' pick (with new choreography and music) and the highly anticipated freestyle.
So who's got the edge? Let's size them up!

Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke
Now that the Disney Kid has beaten the Karate Kid, all bets are off. With Tuesday night's elimination of Ralph Macchio, it'll be Chelsea Kane, Kirstie Alley and Hines Ward in next week's Dancing With the Stars finale. But even show insiders are at a loss, trying to figure out who will ultimately sashay home with the prize.
"I gotta believe it's gonna be either Chelsea or Hines," says second season champ Drew Lachey, one of those rare birds who maintains the physical conditioning required to come back to this show and do what he did Tuesday night: Reunite with his pro partner, Cheryl Burke, and dance. "Chelsea and Hines are the strongest ...
