For the rematch, Chefs Parker and Duey created a towering tropical-themed fruit and vegetable carving from more then 100 pounds of produce. Parker and Duey's winning sculpture, "Treasures Lost, Paradise Found," towered over six feet tall and portrayed the bottom of the sea complete with a treasure chest and shipwrecked boat. A landscape complete with a cascading waterfall, colorful carved tropical birds, papaya snakes and tropical veggie flowers carved from candy cane beets, rutabagas, turnips, chili peppers and rhubarb completed the sculpture.
