Pumpkin Carving 2022: Husband and Wife Challenge

Pumpkin Carving 2022: Husband and Wife Challenge

The leaves are changing colors, and there's a chill in the air, so you know what that means. It's time for the 2022 pumpkin carving challenge!

The Challenge Rules

The rules are pretty simple, but they have evolved over the years.ย This is our ninth year, after all! The first rule is no stencils are allowed. The pumpkin carving designs must be drawn by hand. Last, but not least, there's a time limit. The pumpkins must be carved in two and a half hours. Then, it's off to the races, and may the best pumpkin win! As in years past, we recorded the challenge so you can see all the hard work (and trash talk) that goes intoย these pumpkins.

You Decide: Who is the Champion?

Brent started this year's pumpkin carving challenge with a plan to carve a design he saw in his dream for two weeks. I'm not kidding, that's what he claims.

However, he ended up calling an audible and carving a panther jumping out of a pumpkin instead of his original design.

I decided to go with a classic and used the Thriller music video as inspiration. I carved Michael Jackson after he transformed into a zombie. This design was definitely a challenge!
