it seems most people voted on fatness vs. bear personality, which i guess is the point

is this not the most adorable fucking thing?

The simplicity of solitude it's a hard thing to perfect
Stealing happiness from loneliness is not a simple theft
A black bear has it figured out and gets what he deserves
And the fur that he is wearing is the fur that he prefers

this is actually 908, not 809, and she's seemingly the daughter of 708 Amelia. despite the misidentification, i'm a big fan. i love all the videos/pics of her perched on Backpack's Rock. no idea if she's a future champ in waiting, but she's a queen to me!

"Watching each Bear's individual style --their hallmark---opens up to us some of the deepest aspects of that Bear's unique personality, character, and even their emotional state (generally or in a specific instance). This is 908: a daughter of 708 Amelia. She has claimed "Backpack's Rock" for herself, and day after day, as these October days dwindle towards Winter's long nights, she demonstrates her winning style. In one week, she has ballooned out to a magnificent fullness. Way to go, sweetheart!"

on a different rock, the title of this vid kills me:



in the absence of Beadnose i'll almost certainly be rooting for once and future king Otis in the main bracket

love the before and afters.

I learned yesterday that bear bodies naturally create a buttplug of hair and feces so they don't have to poop during hibernation. neato!

this 2011 clip of 634 Popeye rolling up to 218 Ugly and expecting them to hand over the fish is excellent

634 Popeye rules but he's predictably getting destroyed by 151 Walker. i know earnestly complaining about the voting audience for Fat Bear Week is stupid but there's more to life than just being the biggest!

it's 53,000 to 9,800 in Walker's favor :x

131 has so much personality, I'm surprised at how far behind they are. I guess people really just vote for the biggest bear. Real shame.

812 does have a great personality too (imho!!!) - it was a tough matchup.

photo choice always matters and in today's matchup i gotta say 32 Chunk is not being done any favors :( no chance against 151 Walker
