The most confident spelling bee elimination ever

Jacob Williamson totally didn't know it.

15-year-old Jacob Williamson quickly became a Scripps National Spelling Bee favorite with his swagger, unabashed celebrations, and suuuper elite spelling. So confident was Jacob that when he finally met his match, he didn't see it coming at all. Quite the opposite.

Kabaragoya won this round, but Jacob still won our hearts.
