Jacob Williamson may have lost the National Spelling Bee after misspelling “kabaragoya,” but he won a lot of hearts over his unbridled love of words.
"Please give me a word I know," Williamson excitedly told bee Pronouncer Jacques Bailly before getting "euripus" on Wednesday.
Jacob replied: "I know it! Greek, right?" Yes, came the answer, and Williamson quickly spelled the word correctly.
