Fat Tuesday is coming up. The holiday has given us solid empirical evidence that people will do almost anything for beads. And if a string of chintzy plastic balls is worth disrobing in public, an actual edible version should conceivably merit 10 thousand dollars. That is what the judges of Donut Showdown will decide tonight at 9pm ET when a singing rabbi, a lawyer and a recent college grad compete in a speedy Mardi Gras-themed doughnut extravaganza. The bead necklace doughnuts made with an orange liqueur glaze are like portable king cakes -- with considerably less risk of swallowing a plastic infant. They're also just one of several awesome creations to come out of the competition, with the top doughnut's maker taking home ten grand.

Watch Donut Showdown Thursdays at 9pm ET.
