Fox is heating-up screens with the two-night culinary competition special MasterChef Celebrity Family Showdown.

Produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, the MasterChef special features culinary legend and producer chef Gordon Ramsay, award-winning chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich as they open the MasterChef kitchen to celebrities and their family members.

Once in the kitchen, the celebs will battle each other in four unique challenges, with the winners earning donations for the charity of their choice. The contestants will face their challenges with the aid of a sous chef, whether it be one of their own children or another member of their family.

The MasterChef match-ups include, Tori Spelling and her daughter, Stella vs. Jennie Garth and her daughter, Fiona; Johnny Weir and his brother, Boz, vs. Tara Lipinsky and her husband, Todd; Lisa Vanderpump and her daughter, Pandora, vs. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley; and Evander Holyfield and his daughter, Ebonne, vs. Oscar De La Hoya and his daughter, Atiana.

MasterChef is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Elisabeth Murdoch, Georgie Hurford-Jones, Gordon Ramsay, Natalka Znak, Danny Schrader, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.

MasterChef Celebrity Family Showdown broadcasts May 15 and May 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
