Happy Halloween! The World Champion Pumpkin weigh off took place and Thad Starr won. Thad grew a 1,775 pound pumpkin. The 45-year-old Oregon man got his third win in the “World Pumpkin Capital” for the world championship pumpkin weigh-off.

He gets $6 a pound for the pumpkin, which ends up being a prize of $10,650. Since it didn’t break the 2009 world record it didn’t get the $25,000 bonus prize. Check out the video below from The World Champion Pumpkin weigh off… I can’t believe I just said that!

Someone check that pumpkin for HGH!
