Final product

Dessert, trust me, you don't want to know they put in them. Really. Oh fine, I'll tell you. One has chicken skin and another has chicken liver. Tasty? I'll wait while you go barf.

Judges look on while the chefs face challenges, including a broken oven.

Children abuse, I mean "play on" the blow-up dragon in the kids area.

And of course, the quote of the day comes from a judge, “I’m going to gag it down just fine.”
