I think all the pumpkins are great and rude people need to leave negative comments to themselves. They said any pumpkin and you didn't have to carve it

It's so obvious 1 and 4 are ceramic!!!! Number 3 oh wow, paper eyes and cigar cleaners..Oh so original ...This site is sad to say the least! This was a bull contest! Number 7 and 8 got the point of the contest the rest uh sure thing, more like better homes and garden!!!

Come on, guys...is the cat really in the number one spot right now? As an independent observer to this competition, I think we can all agree that the cat would be a long-shot, at best. I'm starting to question the integrity of this "Stephanie Joseph". Now look, I'm not saying that Stephanie Joseph is participating in some sort of "get out the vote" fraud, but I think we should all take a close look at the voter rolls. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw votes from Jimmy Hoffa and Abe Lincoln... I think it's pretty clear that pumpkin #7, by Chris Rowsell, is the clear winner here. This museum-worthy piece displays an intricacy and craftsmanship that is second to none. Let's ask ourselves, "What are these pieces saying about society?" When you look at #7, the message is clear. Come October 31st, I will accept no result other than contestant #7 in a landslide decision.

I notice the judges did not like a single shaded pumpkin . That is odd because of the work into them. I agree with the Ray Villafane entries. Also thought it was the top 20 but maybe the low number of entries reduced it to 10
