Contestants: Joanne Feldman, Katie Beasley, Buck Lanford, Paul Milliken, Alyse Eady, Ron Gant, and Sharon Lawson.

It was no surprise that last year's winner, Joanne Feldman, "heated things up" with an impressive pumpkin fire. It even included firewood and marshmallows for roasting!

SKYFOX Traffic's Katie Beasley took a sweeter approach and created a pumpkin caramel apple with nuts. 

Buck Lanford represented his "Burgers with Buck" segment and carved a pumpkin burger... with real meat and condiments! 

Still reeling from the Gators' loss to UGA, Florida graduate Paul Milliken used his pumpkin to demonstrate what the Dawgs did to his team over the weekend. 

We're feeling "thankful" Alyse Eady decided to step things up this year with an adorable Thanksgiving-themed pumpkin turkey. 

And hats off to Ron Gant who carved up a ghastly gourd.... 

Lastly, the new kid on the block, Sharon Lawson, did a great job creating a spooky FOX TV pumpkin for her first time in the challenge. 

This year's judge was actor Joel Rush, who's one of the stars on Tyler Perry's If Loving You Is Wrong. 

Rush said it wasn't an easy decision, but picked Katie Beasley's candy apple pumpkin as the winner. Joanne Feldman was the runner-up, and Buck Lanford received third place!
