It is "Fat Bear Week, 2022 October 5th - 11th. 

All the details may be found here with more information about the contest, the Hall of Champions, the Bears and the Junior Bears and information, news, links and press materials.

If you are new to the annual contest, viewers "Choose the fattest bear of the year! Some of the largest brown bears on Earth make their home at Brooks River in Katmai National Park, Alaska. Brown bears get fat to survive and Fat Bear Week is an annual tournament celebrating their success in preparation for winter hibernation." (My emphasis)

Matchups are open for voting between 12 noon - 9 pm Eastern and 9:00 am - 6:00 pm Pacific. 

Here is a Brooks Falls Live Chat, Katmai National Park about the event hosted by Mike Fitz. It starts at approximately minute 23:00. It is a good talk.
