The 2022 Hemingway Look-Alike Contest, part of Key West’s annual Hemingway Days celebrations, took place over the weekend at Sloppy Joe’s Bar.
July 25 (News) — A Florida attorney has been crowned the winner of Key West’s annual Hemingway Look-Alike contest.
Jon Auvil was crowned this year’s “Papa” Hemingway, beating a field of 124 competitors in three rounds of the competition.
Auvil, 65, said this year was his eighth attempt at the title.
“I think what makes me feel most like Hemingway is his relationship with his friends, his wife and his kids,” Auvil was quoted as saying by CBS Miami after being declared the winner. “I feel very, very rich right now.”
