Those of you who enjoy spelling challenges may have been keeping a close eye on the exciting Scripps National Spelling Bee competition. The final has now concluded, ending up with joint champions for the first time since 1962.
It’s not the only memorable moment from this year’s competition though. Those who tuned in may have witnessed the moment when Jacob Williamson sparked a viral frenzy on social media, by celebrating early after being very confident on a particular word.
That word was Kabaragoya, but Williamson spelled the word beginning with a ‘C’ and social media has been exploding ever since. We have included both videos below showing the climax of the actual champions being crowned, but also the embarrassing moment with Williamson.
