This guy went on a game show, which decided to put its contestants through the rounder when it came to confronting their biggest fears. As it turns out, he wasn't completely honest about his biggest fear. He said it was something to do with creepy crawlers, and ended up walking through a room filled with cockroaches.
Alright, that sounds pretty terrifying to me. Regardless, it wasn't his biggest fear. He ends up winning the game show, and with that victory, a car. Sounds like his family was a little split on whether or not that was a genuine victory, or if he's a jerk for lying about his biggest fear. I'm thinking the dude walked through a room of cockroaches and absolutely deserves a car.
Over the past week, the employees of Katmai National Park have been asking people to vote, March Madness-style, on which bear has grown the fattest over the summer. The park has posted picture matchups of bear pairs on its Facebook page, and the public got to choose the fattest with their "likes." This yearly contest began in 2014, and every year it becomes even more of a viral sensation.
Today, a day the park calls "Fat Bear Tuesday," the contest is over. A most-round bear named 435 Holly took the grand prize.
"She is fat," the park's announcement of the winner reads. "She is fabulous. She is 435 Holly. ... All hail Holly whose healthy heft will help her hibernate until the spring. Long live the Queen of Corpulence!"
