‘Celebrity Beef’ Exclusive Clip: Joel McHale Makes ‘Bachelor’ Stars Nick Viall & Ben Higgins Kiss

It just feels right to have Joel McHale back on E!, right? The former host of The Soup is back with Celebrity Beef, a new game show that features two feuding celebrities going head-to-head in a cook-off to squash their beef. McHale adds in a little of his signature mayhem through his hilarious commentary and through the various mini-challenges he concocts to further test the contestants. After each challenge, he awards the winner an advantage and the loser a punishment that will help or hurt them during the reminder of their cooking time.
