The episode description for the final episode states: "It's the spine-tingling finale of Halloween Wars! The final two teams go head-to-head for the $25,000 prize as they craft cakes that show what happens when two monsters square off in a duel. Zak Bagans shares his paranormal expertise, and judges Eddie Jackson, Shinmin Li and Aarti Sequeira choose the winner."

I will post the winner of Halloween Wars season 11 after the episode airs and you can discuss the episode/season in the comments.  I know a lot of people missed the pumpkin carving this year, but we will have to wait to see if it returns next season.

Halloween Baking Championship Winner Season 7

Monday night at 9pm ET on Food Network is the season seven finale of Halloween Baking Championship where the winning baker will take home $25,000.  The four remaining contestants competing for the prize are Renee Loranger, Adina Schaefer, Guillermo Salinas, and Megan Baker.  Renee was a fan-favorite from season six of Halloween Baking Championship who re-entered the competition during the season.  The final episode is a two-hour episode where a baker will go home during the first hour and the winner will be announced in the second hour.

The episode description for tonight states, "The four finalists face their fears when host John Henson challenges them to bake using a hated ingredient. The bakers must be brave, though, because the camp serial killer and judges Stephanie Boswell, Carla Hall and Zac Young will claim one more victim in a sudden death, leaving the final three to battle it out for $25,000 and the title of Halloween Baking Champion."

I will update this post with the winner after the episode airs and feel free to discuss this season in the comments.

Bobby Flay Supposedly Leaving Food Network After 27 Years

Variety recently reported that Bobby Flay and Food Network are parting ways after his current contract expires at the end of the year.  They were negotiating a new contract and could not agree on financial terms due to both sides being far apart.  They apparently broke off negotiations and Bobby Flay will be leaving the company after 27 years if a new contract is not reached.

People later reported that Bobby Flay wanted a $100 million contract, though the amount of years were not known.  Guy Fieri reportedly signed a three-year $80 million deal with Food Network earlier in the year, which was probably used by Flay's representatives during negotiations. 

I don't think there is any bad blood between Bobby Flay and Food Network as he was still filming Beat Bobby Flay after the news of the negotiations falling apart.  So even if a new deal isn't reached, there will probably be new episodes of Beat Bobby Flay that will air after the year is over. 

Do you think a deal will eventually be reached or do you think Bobby Flay's time on Food Network is over?

UPDATE - A new three-year deal was reached to keep Bobby Flay on Food Network. (Link)
