Arvind Mahankali doesn’t want glory. He could care less about the money or scholarships. Arvind was born to do one thing and one thing only: Motherf*cking Spell. So quit it with the confetti and give the 13-year-old more words to dominate. Kid’s already going to be forced to go back to his hotel room and study for another 4 hours anyways.
Screw these actual words from Webster’s these judges are giving out. If they want to see a real challenging spelling bee, just have the kids spell out each other’s names correctly. Don’t think I can even pronounce Arvind Mahankali let alone spell the name.
