Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I hope chris rowsell win his is really good.

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

Why are you so mad, you winning? Most of us know your "lovely carved pumpkin" is ceramic. Make sure to thank the dollar store you got it from.

Think you need to look again. I'm no longer winning. Yes I will thank the dollar store where I got my lovely foam carveable pumpkin. PS if all my employees don't vote for me your fired

Well since I have no employees that threat really wasn't thought out. All though it did make me laugh. I don't like being called a cheater. We all need to remember "if you ain't got nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all "

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!!!

It is a carveable pumpkin

My pumpkin is a real pumpkin not ceramic, not styrofoam...REAL!!

The rules state that it had to be a pumpkin. Real or artificial. Just saying. All the entries were awesome.

I am positive the only one commiting "VOTERS FRAUD" is Elaine Lasseter!! 117 Votes overnight??? What a JOKE!

How can you do voter fraud when you can only vote once?

I wonder how much Elaine paid for all of her votes. People like you ruining voting contests for others who REALLY worked hard to try and win. I hope you get caught and disqualified!!

Just to let everyone know I have not paid for votes. I hand drew the stripes on my pumpkin. Everyone who has seen me working on the one I am making for the little girl next door loves it. I have not paid for votes but have asked my friends to vote for me.

um, how do I vote?

I like the carriage one by Ben sanchez!

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 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 the message is clear Come October st I will accept no result other than contestant inRead More 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

It was the top 20 that were to be picked.... I know I read that.

I thought the contest said the top 20 will be added...

cool contest, just sad that someone things they can google pumpkin carving, post a picture of a Ray Villafane's Predator pumpkin and think no-one will notice. If you are going to cheat, at least cheat better and go to page 2 or 3 of a google image search. If number 28.Kat is in fact Ray, come on ray, post one of you new pumpkins for us to drool over.

I agree...hopefully the judges see that some are a copy of someone elses artwork!!

@smartpart 57 Thanks for your concern. All submissions were fact checked by our editors and anyone caught "cheating" was eliminated from the competition. All our finalists are the real deal!

Roseanne Halloween specials were my favorite! Yeee gippy!
