Fat Bear Week, the annual gathering of fans around the world to recognize and honor true greatness in the wilds of Alaska, is back with a full week of exciting activities.
This single-elimination tournament allows voters to pick the best of the fattest amongst 12 ursine heavyweights who live in Katmai National Park. Voting is held each day starting on Wednesday with the winners advancing to their next match the following day. Brackets will be revealed today at 7 p.m. (eastern) on Explore.Org’s Brook’s Live Chat channel. Final voting takes place on Fat Bear Tuesday, October 10.
Last year’s champion, Otis, will return to defend his title.
