Grab a bucket of candy and prepare for a scare, because Season 5 of Halloween Wars is set to begin Sunday, Oct. 4 (premiering at 9|8c). Before this fright-night celebration of all things spooky and sugary begins, FN Dish is taking you inside the competition to hear from the five teams of Halloween warriors who will be facing off for the chance at a whopping $50,000.
Today we’re introducing you to team 2 Ghouls and a Guy, made up of Diane Fehder, Jeff Munchel and Bridget McCarty. Read on below to hear from all three of them, then check back tomorrow to hear from another group of teammates.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Halloween?
Diane Fehder: I think of trick-or-tricking in my parents’ neighborhood while growing up. I love Halloween. I love dressing up and now love dressing my daughter up. I think of all the past memories I’ve had — the smell of fall leaves and fireplaces. Now all of our neighbors get together outside and hand out candy together.
Jeff Munchel: When I think of Halloween, I think of candy, blood and haunted houses!
Bridget McCarty: [I think of] black cats, witches, pumpkins, lights, crows, mummies, candy, costumes, darkness, night, owls, sugar, Dracula, smoke, fog, scarecrows, cauldrons, screams, howls and more.
