Kids are known for creating some of the stinkiest messes and now they are getting rewarded for it at the National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest hosted at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Contestants from across the country recently competed to show off their foul-smelling sneakers and a chance to win the national title.
This year’s winner of the Oder-Easters Rotten Sneaker Contest is Connor Slocombe, age 11 from Eagle River, Alaska. Connor received $2,500, a trip to New York City along with Broadway tickets.
Join Connor and Master Sniffer George Aldrich in a recent interview that tells it all about the stinkiest shoe to being a Master Sniffer.

Master Sniffer George Aldrich is a Chemical Specialist for NASA space missions. For the past 43 years George has performed odor-panel tests (better known as smell missions) to prevent toxic odors from entering the confined NASA crew environment.
