Three winners will be chosen each night, one from each of the time zones across the continental United States (one winner in Eastern/Central, one in the Mountain time zone, and one in the Pacific time zone).

Hosted by television favorite Alan Thicke, "Celebrity Cooking Showdown," is a unique and exciting culinary competition from Reveille in association with Sean "Diddy" Combs' Bad Boy Entertainment.
