Have you ever seen such a huge pumpkin? Crazy!
The pumpkin was grown by Travis Gienger, from Minnesota, and felt honored to win after deciding to enter the contest in Northern California since it’s known as the “Super Bowl of Pumpkins.”
“He took home $16,450 in winnings for first prize in the pumpkin growing competition or $7 per pound by the “pay-by-the-pound” system. Gienger added that he named the winning pumpkin after the Netflix series, Tiger King, because he noticed it might have striped coloring. ‘The Tiger King’ also set a record for the heaviest grown pumpkin in North America this year, according to contest officials.”
