Has the Halloween Wars format changed?

Although Halloween Wars is back in 2021, there have been some changes to the Food Network show’s format. $25,000 is up for grabs for the winning team.

Although Zac Bagans is the show’s new host, many viewers took to Twitter following episode 1 of the series to ask why Jonathan Bennett had been replaced.

Lots more viewers were heartbroken that the pumpkin carving element of the show has disappeared. One person Tweeted: “hey what the heck #HalloweenWars ? What happened to pumpkin carving? What happened to the small scare and spine chiller? I don’t need Halloween Baking Championship 2: Electric Boogaloo. I’m very disappointed D:“.

Another said: “You have truly ruined Halloween wars with no pumpkin carvers and lowering the money. You are cheap and not the same show anymore. Truly disappointing. Not watching it anymore. Will watch the old seasons.
