Brian ‘Tator’ Edwards, of Grove City, was featured on “Outrageous Pumpkins” airing on Food Network and streaming on Discovery Plus.

Edward’s love for pumpkin carving was born nine years ago when he learned the craft in a college art club. He enjoys every part of the carving process, including munching on leftover pumpkin seeds.

On the show, seven pumpkin carvers descend onto the pumpkin patch, determined to make Halloween history as they compete for the title of Outrageous Pumpkins Champion.
Over the course of four weeks, “Outrageous Pumpkins” host Sunny Anderson puts the carvers’ skills to the test as they face hair-raising challenges and build eye-popping pumpkin creations. In the end, judges Terri Hardin and Paul Dever will determine which carver will be the Outrageous Pumpkins Champion and take home the Outrageous Pumpkin Prize Belt.

The show airs Sundays at 10 p.m. from Oct. 2 through Oct. 23.

Edwards made it through to the second episode, (airing on Oct. 9) where the carvers have to complete “Scary Sculpting.” Each carver must sculpt a 3-D zombie in their likeness, complete with accessories that reflect their personality. Then, the carvers form teams and create a giant haunted house, using a minimum of 15 pumpkins.
