Oh hey, a kid from Newburgh, that's about twenty minutes from where I grew up.

Excited for this Blake Bouwman kid showing up to the contest stoned, that's the kind of diversity we like to see in the field.

This might go all the way to the nighttime session at how slow the rate of eliminations are going.

to give the kids a few minutes reprieve to come to terms with their loss and give the parents a few minutes to reflect before they have the chance to rip their kid to shreds and tell them they have shamed their family/ancestors. I helped run one of these conventions one time for a friend who was involved in the organization's admin and I can tell you that these kids (most of them anyways) are not doing these competitions voluntarily; their parents are making them do this poo poo at emotional-gunpoint.

Thats p hosed up. I did spelling bee all the time in school but i was a huge dork and i did see kids who didn't want to be there

I loved the poo poo out of spelling, but yeah, for a lot of these kids, it's not only a pressure deal but practically treated like a job, complete with every day tutoring from exorbitantly paid tutors and everything, which kinda seems to defeat the point of fighting for a scholarship, but that doesn't seem to be what it's about anymore. That's a big reason why the pool is getting bigger and harder to whittle around anymore, with these kids taking it on as a job, which is extremely ridiculous.

Still, can't fault the kids that. And most of them don't break down on the couch or any of that anyway, so dumb comment by that dude, obviously.

I know the commentators were kinda goofing but they're right. This is broken and I'm not sure how you fix this long term when you've got kids who have drilled so hard.

Only two and a half rounds left though!

Also, yeah, this is unsustainable as a form of contest, but that became obvious when ties started happening more and more the past five years. It's too easy to memorize the dictionary if that's all you do with your life.
