Rachael's 2018 '80s Zombie Prom-Themed Halloween Party Aired October 31, 2018

They say go big or go home, right? And make no mistake — when it comes to Halloween, we go BIG.

In Halloweens past, Rach has dressed up as a medieval queen, a cave woman and a '50s diner waitress, to name a few. But this year, she traveled back to a different time period — the '80s — and as always, she took John with her!

We threw an '80s prom, but not just any prom — a zombie prom! (Who doesn't love a good mix of creepy and nostalgia, after all?)

Not only did John's band The Cringe perform '80s classics for us, but Rach's hubby whipped up one of his signature cocktails, too. (Bloody Good Orange Punch, anyone?) Plus, Rach made Not Your Mummy's Nachos (get it?), and culinary team members chipped in with spooktacular treats: Chicken, Pumpkin & Black Bean Flauta “Fingers” (a.k.a. taquitos) and Mexican Chocolate Pots de Scream.

(We told you we go big!)

Not to mention that our *entire* studio audience dressed up and competed in our annual costume contest.

Watch the video above to see which costume won! (Spoiler alert: There were 3 different winning categories and one of the groups came as John's cocktails. We love it!)

Shout out to Head Over Heels The Musical, Fitbit, Sanyo, Aruba Tourism Authority and Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino for hooking us up with amazing prizes for our audience and to Abracadabra NYC for helping some of our staff dress up!

Oh, and did we mention that we invited an '80s icon to the party, too? Yup, Debbie Gibson stopped by and spilled about her rumored "beef" with fellow '80s icon, Tiffany, and meeting Michael Jackson.
