The National Spelling Bee may have been last week, but the real competition happened last night when Jimmy Kimmel challenged the champion herself. Read on if you fancy yourself a good speller.
National Spelling Bee champ Snigdha Nandipati (whose name is a spelling contest itself) appeared last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, aiming to claim bragging rights over the host. Guillermo presided, looking adorable in his bee outfit. Butchering words like "indecipherable" (in-des-sip-arble) and "humble" (oom-blay) with his Latino accent, Guillermo made things difficult for both contestants. But Snigdha took an early lead with "barbiturate" and held on to the end, claiming the title of Ninth Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Spelling Bee champ.
