The King of Chunks Has Been Crowned
A four-time champion, 480 Otis proved that age is just a number and appetite is the real judge of awesomeness.
Fat Bear Week is one of the most anticipated events of the year for Katmai Conservancy, and the bears of Brooks Falls have officially wrapped up the feeding frenzy.
After a full week of feasting and a stacked race to the polls, the 25-year-old beat his toughest competitor, 151 Walker, and became America’s newest sweetheart. When the competition began on September 30th, 480 Otis was a clear fan favorite, prompting a positive flurry of fans who predicted the winner’s path to victory far ahead of the game.
Most notably, the chonky champ experienced one of the most incredible transformations of the season, proving that anything - and any gain - is possible!
