Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Sandra Lee, HAUNTED GINGERBREAD SHOWDOWN is a competition series that pits nine of the best gingerbread artists in the country against each other to create spooky gingerbread masterpieces that embody the season. But beware, these aren't your grandma's cute gingerbread houses. With surprises lurking around every corner, these wildly haunted original creations tell a darker story. Judges Jamika Pessoa and Jason Smith are joined by a cast of rotating judges -- including the "Mistress of the Dark" herself, Elvira (Episode 1); chef and restauranteur Raffaele Ronca (Episode 2); cake designer Barbarann Kym (Episode 3) -- to determine the winners of the first three heats, who square off against each other in the finale for a chance to win the ultimate Halloween treat: $25,000 and a feature in Food Network Magazine. In the grand finale, the judges are joined by some very special Halloween fans who are expecting epic work and will decide on a winner. In the series opener, "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice," Sandra challenges three chefs to create gingerbread masterpieces in honor of the 30th anniversary of Beetlejuice. Judges Jason Smith and Jamika Pessoa are joined by guest judge Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, to determine who will advance to the finale and get a shot at the $25,000 grand prize.
On Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered the season finale of HAUNTED GINGERBREAD SHOWDOWN. In the season ender, "The Ultimate Haunted House," three winners return to compete in the frightful finale! Each chef must create the ultimate haunted house out of gingerbread if they want to take home the $25,000 grand prize. Judges Jamika Pessoa and Jason Smith are joined by some very special Halloween fans that are expecting epic work and decide on a winner.
