The whole state of Wisconsin is rooting on Franklin 13-year-old Abby Martin as she competes in Food Network's "Kids Baking Championship."

Last night was the second-to-last episode, which determined who would make the final round in next Monday's season finale. Abby competed in the "Sand Castle Challenge," and managed to qualify as one of the show's finalists.

"I want to win Kid's Baking Championship so bad, because I want money...I also want to represent Wisconsin," Abby said.

When host Valerie Bertinelli insisted Abby was pronouncing "Wisconsin" with a Midwestern accent, the teen disagreed.

"She's totally over-exaggerating it," she said.

You can watch Abby on the season finale of "Kids Baking Championship" next Monday, March 5 at 8:00 p.m. on Food Network. The champion will receive $25,000.
