[ # ] The 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee ran out of challenging words
May 31st, 2019 under Sports figures


Yesterday, was the 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee and they had not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven but eight winners. How did that happen? After 20 rounds, nine hours and spelling 152 words correctly, they ran out of words to challenge the Octochamps: Erin Howard; Rishik Gandhasri; Abhijay Kodali; Shruthika Padhy; Rohan Raja; Saketh Sundar; Sohum Sukhatankar; and Christopher Serrao.

I might not be that smart because I was eliminated from a spelling bee due to the word imbecile; but isn’t there a book with an endless amount of words they could use to get some more. You know, like a dictionary? I guess not.

It was a costly decision because it cost them $400,000, $50,000 per kid. You better believe there are going to be changes to next year’s competition. As exciting as it is to watch, it ain’t cheap to have that many winners.

BTW the Octochamps were on Good Morning America today and they were all happy to share the win. I wonder if they would have felt the same if they had to share the $50,000 grand prize. What are they going to do with their winnings? Save it for college, of course. They are smart kids. Unlike me who would have thrown a massive party with the money. Which is why I was taken down by imbecile. That and my teachers hated me!
