Challenge: Sugar Showdown

Four top sugar artists meet in Beaver Creek to create an amazing four-foot tall sugar showpiece. The theme? The great outdoors. The twist? This is an elimination competition. There are three rounds and competitors must demonstrate specific skills such as sugar pulling and sugar blowing. The challenger who doesn't impress the judges after each round will be eliminated. At the end of the day, only two of our sugar artists will be left standing. And only one of those will go home with $10,000 in their pocket.
