I think I found Mr. October (the pumpkin carver Vegan7LuvsStitch posted) while watching Halloween Wars on Food Network! Anyone else thinking it's the same guy? (They did say he does pumpkins for Disney, so... I'm almost certain it's him.)
I heard these two guys are pumpkin carving twins. They were champs at the 2011 pumpkinpalooza competition in the twin division. - Mouse4life 1150.2 #120 10-8-12 11:23PMLike(2)Reply
***It has to be him, he has a FB: http://tinyurl.com/9mewkwk there are pics of his pumpkins and he talks about the show. - Linzee 870.6 #176 10-8-12 11:27PMLike(1)Reply
I even looked for him when we were there on Thursday, but it was a woman doing the carvings then. Drat! LOL. I even had my cool strategy planned for taking the pics of the pumpkins and magically getting him in the shots, too! Next time! Oh. They won't be carving at Thanksgiving, will they? Maybe they need to find another job for him year-round. Hahaha. - MeridaFan 3404.4 #27 10-9-12 9:07AMLike(1)Reply
I really wanna see the rest of his tattoos. Perhaps someone could ask him to take his shirt off for a pic...just a suggestion.😜 - RCmom 5167.4 #15 10-25-12 10:51AMLike(1)Reply
Nice detective work, totally looks like him - Linzee 870.6 #176 10-8-12 7:32PMLikeReply
Haha...was going to post this exact same thing last night when watching Halloween Wars. The guy's name is Ray Brown and FoodNetwork did say he does pumpkins for Disney. - Zipper2theRescue 243.2 #1315 10-8-12 7:37PMLikeReply
I think you are on to something...good find :) - DisLUVney 550.7 #313 10-8-12 7:38PMLikeReply
Someone just needs to ask him, what his name is. - sallyg 234.0 #1418 10-8-12 7:58PMLikeReply
Here's a photo of his group (he's on the team with blue shirts and yellow aprons) http://tinyurl.com/8rsbb7p
Still not the greatest photo but maybe a little better - PiecesOf8 588.1 #289 10-8-12 7:58PMLikeReply
Imagine of there's 2 of them! 😍😍 - DeaG 9.3 #9661 10-8-12 8:01PMLikeReply
Food Network guy is Ray Villafane and he's 43 and world famous - ShariRenee 4200.9 #21 10-8-12 8:02PMLikeReply
Hopefully someone will find him again at DL and let me know whether it's him or not. He really doesn't look very old on the TV show, so it could still be the same guy. So, who knows! - PiecesOf8 588.1 #289 10-8-12 8:07PMLikeReply
I don't know if it's him or not, but he'll do. Hahaha. Nice job! Have to watch that now. Glad I DVR'd it! - MeridaFan 3404.4 #27 10-8-12 8:13PMLikeReply
*Chimes In* the brow ridge looks different, but it's hard to tell with the different lighting and angles. WHO is going to DL and can see MrOctober's name??? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 4084.6 #23 10-8-12 11:14PMLikeReply
Its him...how many pumpkin experts with that kinda look does Disney have? 🎃 - MrsMears 215.4 #1670 10-8-12 11:20PMLikeReply
