Guess who scored a shout out on Saturday Night Live last night? First of all, great cameos by Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon on Weekend Update who mentioned “Halloween Wars” on the Food Network! Pretty cool homage to a really fun show. This is the sixth season with host Jonathan Bennett and judges Cake Decorator Shinmin Li and horror film icon Don Mancini. Sweet and scary. Put that on a recipe card!
I had a chance to talk with Jonathan who’s beyond in love with his job. It is a dream coming true for one grand champion team who will walk away the $50,000 grand prize on the series finale Sunday, October 30th at 9 pm. Oh, and talk about excellent cameos. You’ll enjoy a rotating panel of judges like rotating panel of celebrity horror legends as guest judges like my favorite – Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, along with Sid Haig (Halloween), Greg Plotkin (Director of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension), Bitsie Tulloch (Grimm), and Carlson Young (Scream).
The series began with six teams with an interesting array of talent. A pumpkin carving expert, cake artist and sugar artist, but only one team can win. Keep up on the horrifying fun by on Twitter with #HalloweenWars and online at FoodNetwork.com/HalloweenWars.
