Todd Skinner of Barnesville, Ohio, was crowned King Pumpkin at the Ohio Pumpkin Festival in Barnesville, Ohio. His pumpkin weighed in at 1,109 pounds, breaking the state record of 846 pounds and narrowly missing the world record of 1,131 pounds.
Skinner only raised six plants and didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to grow the massive gourd, but said he was “tickled orange” to win.
