Good stuff ahah!

I wonder how many of those are bots. I definitely see a pattern in the PRs.

Personally, I don't think they are bots.

One guy said there is a big Indian programming channel (TV or YouTube not sure) that promoted hacktoberfest yesterday and showed some steps on how to participate. So my guess is he showed them how to add "Amazing Project" kinds of comments and how to issue a PR and they all run with it thinking that's how contribution is done.
