A Guy Named Hemingway Wins Key West's Hemingway Lookalike Contest

A guy named Hemingway won the annual "Papa" Hemingway Lookalike Contest in Key West, Florida, over the weekend.

White-bearded 65-year-old Dave Hemingway—who is in no way related to the famous author—had entered the contest six previous times but never won it until now. Held at former Hemingway hangout Sloppy Joe's Bar, the event is a highlight of the Hemingway Days festival, held yearly to honor the legacy of the writer, who lived in Key West during the 1930s.

The lookalike contest's 122 entrants this year also included Michael Groover, the husband of celebrity chef Paula Deen. He finished in the top five.
