Plot Synopsis

In this star-studded version of CUPCAKE WARS, four different celebrities compete in each episode, as these VIPs face the same challenges as any other baker and are eliminated one by one with the help of a guest judge. The last celebrity standing earns bragging rights and donates their winnings to a charity of their choice. Hosted by Jonathan Bennett with judges Florian Bellanger and Waylynn Lucas, CUPCAKE WARS: CELEBRITY features these all celebrities:

April 11: Mel B, Mayim Bialik, Andy Dick and Jennie Garth, who bake cupcakes for guest judge Fred Chesnais, the CEO of Atari.

April 18: Joey Lawrence, Holly Madison, Matt Moy and Dita Von Teese, who bake for the co-champions of the 2015 National Spelling Bee -- Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam.

April 25: Greer Grammer, Maria Menounos, AJ Michalka and Tamera Mowry who battle it out to prove that their cupcakes reign supreme for Bobak Ferdowsi (aka NASA Mohawk Guy) from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

After a 2.5-month break, CUPCAKE WARS: CELEBRITY returned with new episodes on Monday, July 11, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network.
