^Note 3 : Robert Lombardi (Team Sweet Nightmares) and Benny Rivera (Team Spooktacular) worked together in season 3 (Team Crypt Creepers) but lost in the 2nd episode.
To be the Halloween Wars Season 9 winner, the teams needed to really push the boundaries of their Halloween displays. All season, the displays have found ways to innovate, go big or just impress the judges like never before. Given that this Halloween display will earn a team $50,000, it is imperative to really deliver the scary tale.
For the second to last Spine Chiller of the season, the teams had to imagine what happens when other iconic holiday characters go trick or treating. Could that Easter Bunny go rogue or what about a Christmas elf with a naughty side This Halloween Wars display definitely will have you rethink the holidays.
In many ways, their Santa was quite impressive. Just the size alone was extreme. Although their Santa used some tricks from earlier in the season. The corn silk hair had been done. While the size was scary, the Santa image was a little lackluster.
Frosted Freakshow probably had the most impressive characters. The Krampus versus Easter Bunny display was hands down the winner of the evening. The pumpkin carving on the Krampus was the best of the season.
Susana Mijares is a champion. On Sunday, October 30, the co-owner of Délice Chocolatier and Patisserie on San Antonio's Far North Central Side, won season 12 of the reality show competition Halloween Wars on the Food Network. Mijares was joined in victory by her teammates, Monique Hawk and Janira Green, who competed on the show as Ghosty Gals.
Season 12 of Halloween Wars started with nine teams. Each week, one team was eliminated. In the season finale, Ghosty Gals went up against a team known as Lollipop Lunatics. For their final challenge, both were tasked with creating a spooky fashion show inspired by the catacombs in Paris. Ghosty Gals chose to present their edible artwork as a skeleton dressed in a haunting couture dress.
The actor, author, TV personality, museum operator, and lead paranormal investigator is set to host Halloween Wars Season 12. In 2007, Bagans collaborated with Nick Groff, a fellow paranormal investigator and musician, and Aaron Goodwin to create the independent documentary Ghost Adventures. The Travel Channel later turned it into a series that ran for nine seasons.
Jonathan Bennett is the host of the show. The actor was previously seen in Mean Girls and is also the host of Cake Wars. He has been a consistent face on Halloween Wars and we should be seeing him back in season 9 as well.
The new theme is given to the team, and they have to create a bigger display with the idea. A lot of creativity and out of box thinking plays an important role here as the team members have to tell a story behind the characters and elements used in the display. The theme of the second round usually relates to episode names of each season. The inspection and evaluation of each display are even more thorough and drilling in this round. Through various episodes, these teams compete with each other and the last team standing who walks away with the prize money of 50,000 US dollars.
In the second season, episode 3 the remaining teams must capture the moment when a mad scientist's creations go horribly wrong. In this episode, the final three teams -Dead Men Walking, Paranormal, and Morbid Mayhem- are competing to make it to the finale. The teams start off creating a small display about a creature lurking behind a door, giving Morbid Mayhem the advantage in the Spine-Chiller challenge. Team Paranormal was eliminated after the second challenge and Morbid Mayhem claimed a clean-sweep leading into the finale with their display.
Following \"Science Gone Wrong\", the final two teams compete for the title and grand prize with their best representations of a wedding between the undead. Teams Morbid Mayhem and Dead Men Walking compete for the grand prize. The episode starts with the Small-Scare challenge, where they must create a display that captures the feeling of being trapped, which Morbid Mayhems wins giving them an advantage in the final challenge of the season. The teams' final displays, depicting the events of a zombie wedding, were neck-and-neck but ultimately Dead Men Walking claimed the title.
In the premiere of season 7, six teams compete and compose displays that demonstrate what happens when a hitchhiker accepts a ride from a dangerous stranger. The teams were introduced including Morbid Masterminds, Sugar Slashers, Scare Snactics, Team Ghoul'd, Ghoulish Gang, and Spooky Boo's. The teams started with displays of monsters who received a fresh new makeover. Morbid Masterminds won the first challenge of the season but their advantage in the Spine-Chiller challenge wasn't enough. Sugar Slasher's depiction of a terrorized hitchhiker and coffee-themed dessert won the challenge. For the Ghoulish Gang, however, it was the first and last elimination challenge.
The final four teams of season 7 have to create a display that shows what happens when the monsters throw themselves a Halloween bash. Teams Sugar Slahers, Scare Snactics, Morbid Masterminds, and Team Ghoul'd compete to make it to the top three. The teams' Spine-Chiller challenge had them creating a display of a monster party with vampires, werewolves, and/or zombies and incorporating a holiday-drink inspired treat. Team Ghoul'd won the Small-Scare challenge of creating a baby monster, giving them an advantage which paid off in the elimination round. Sugar Slashers were not as lucky when they met their end in the competition.
In the season 2 premiere, the teams have to create terrifying clowns to haunt the judges and viewers. The five competing teams include Dead Men Walking, Morbid Mayhem, Paranormal, No Guts No Glory, and Screamish.
The first challenge of the season, Dead Men Walking with their depiction of a ghoul or goblin. Going into the elimination challenge Dead Men Walking had the advantage and won with their creepy clown display and circus peanut-based dessert. Unfortunately for team Screamish, it was their last challenge and they were eliminated.
The premiere of season 9 starts with a haunting look at what happens while enduring a nightmare that won't end. The six teams Trio of Terror, Hangry Haunters, Malicious Mavens, Burned at the Cake, Buttercream Beasts, and Frosted Freakshow start the season with their take on a stuffed animals evil twin. The all-female team, Malicious Mavens, takes the first win of the season. During the elimination challenge Burned at the Cake took their first win with their nightmarish display and Hangry Haunters were the first elimination of the season.
The fourth episode of the first season determines the champions with a display of the underworld. Team Bling Bats and Team Boo face off in the finale for the grand prize. Team Boo took the first challenge with their ghostly display but despite their advantage, in the second round, Bling Bats were the champions.
The final three teams of season 7 create displays that show what a cooking show would be like if it were hosted by a member of the undead. Team Ghoul'd beats out Scare Snactics and Morbid Masterminds in the first challenge to create a modern devil. The teams were creative with their interpretations of a cooking show hosted by a zombie with the addition of a treat on an edible plate. Team Ghoul'd took the win, advancing to the finale with Morbid Masterminds and eliminating Scare Snactics.
In the second episode of the first season, the teams put a creepy twist on classic fairytales to try and avoid elimination. Bling Bats, Team Boo, Skulls of the Abyss, and Something Wicked competes in the first round creating a monstrous kitty, teddy bear, duck, and rabbit. Bling Bats came out on top winning an advantage and going on to win the second round. For team Something Wicked their interpretation of a twisted fairytale was not as disturbing as the others making them the second team to go home.
Season 7 is perhaps the best season of Halloween Wars, so far, and the final two teams compete in the finale for the title and grand prize with only the premise, beware. The first challenge was for the teams to create a haunted ventriloquist dummy. Team Ghoul'd won and received an advantage in the final challenge but it was not enough. Morbid Masterminds were crowned champions and took the prize with their near-perfect display, capturing the final moments before an impending doom and their tasting element with a shocking flavor-twist.
The biggest issue Halloween Wars fans had with last season was the fact that there were no pumpkin carvers or sugar artists. One of the things that made the competition so interesting had always been the various specialties of the team members, and cutting those two roles did NOT make viewers happy.
The good news is, the pumpkins are back, and judging by the trailer for the new season, so are the sugar artists. This should result in more varied and intricate designs, and most likely, more personality clashes, which are always entertaining.
If you have been craving something festive to watch this October, season 11 of Halloween Wars is the way to go! This Food Network show is all about finding the best, most talented team that can make spooktacular, edible displays that leave you in awe.
One thing you won't witness this time around Pumpking carving. Every season, a cake decorator, candy maker and pumpkin carver work together to create an incredible design. However, according to TMZ, because of the pandemic, filming started later and therefore, the show was unable to get enough pumpkins in time.
Fans took to social media to express their outrage about it. \"The pumpkin carving was the best part and now it is gone. Boooooooooo!!!! Bad decision powers that be,\" one person tweeted. \"They RUINED Halloween wars. Just another baking show now. It was a tradition my son and I watched each October and now I just deleted whole season from DVR. What a bummer! Bring back the PUMPKIN CARVING,\" said another. 59ce067264
