Dean Won Rachael vs. Guy!


As you may know by now, my very own Gourmet Dad won this season of Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cookoff!  He went head to head with Carnie Wilson in the finale, and ended up winning $50,000 for Miracle Babies, a charity that is very near and dear to us.

I’m so proud of my man for putting himself out there and taking on this challenge. I’ve always known how incredible he is in the kitchen, and I’m so happy that Rachael and Guy agree!

This win means so much to Dean, to our kids and to our family as a whole. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that Dean’s skills in the kitchen were able to provide much needed funds for an incredible charity.

If you have a chance, head over to Dean’s site The Gourmet Dad and send him a little note of congratulations… I know it would mean a lot to him!

So proud of you Babe, I knew you could do it!

    Dean was a class act the entire show. I was rooting for him to win as he was such a great guy. He of course wanted to win for his charity but he also was rooting for all the other competitors and was a great guy. Well Done Dean and I am so happy he won. Congratulations and more importantly congratulations on being such a terrific role model in competition!

  • B Davis

    The two of you have to open a restaurant ASAP. Dean was amazing on GvsR. He was incredibly creative and I love the idea of scoring scallops. I am a huge fan of yours and now of your whole fam. I would love to one day dine at a “CacciaTORI”!

    I always Knew Dean would win. With the cheering squad you have assembled, how could he fail. But, just saying, I did tell my Husband “If Dean does not win, I will never watch Food Network again”. Keep up the awesome life, (it is worth it) it just keeps getting better!!!!!


    Congratulations Dean! You truly deserved to win! You deserve to get your own TV Cooking Show. Hope to see you soon on the Cooking Channel. By the way, when is Tori and Dean Home Sweet Holllywood gong to be back on. We really miss you guys.

Loved how the gave carnies charity money also. Congrats dean! U and your family are just awesome.

  • Boosmom

  • Jamie0811

    I love your family! I was so happy when Dean won. And what a wonderful charity to choose. I had my daughter at 34 weeks and she spent 24 days in the NICU at Naval Medical Center San Diego. She is now a very healthy and active two year old! We’re walking in the March of Dimes walk in Salt Lake in May in her honor. If anybody would like to donate to our team here is our link. :) It would mean a LOT to me. (Totally not trying to spam, just trying to earn money for a charity near and dear to my heart)

  • Jeanne Tutt

    I was so happy to see him win because I know how much cooking means to him! I’m guessing since someone else was holding Hattie cat that this was filmed while you were in the hospital on bed rest with your latest addition :)


  • Terri Rosall

    I knew that he would win. I love to see him cook on the show.
