Mystery Veggie?

I live in central FL and have been working on my Fall garden. I planted Broccoli from seed on Aug 4th and although some of them sprouted I also got this mystery plant! I've never seen it before so if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear. It has a weird spire in the center and is already towering above broccoli that sprouted. Any ideas?

Looks like an Amaranth of some kind.

August is probably the worst time of year to germinate Broccoli. They need cooler nights to germinate well.
