Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga are crowned co-champions of the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee and not only does Nihar leave Jairam hanging for a celebratory high-five, he also does his best Dez Bryant celebration.
Whether you’re a football player or a spelling bee contestant, it’s pretty accurate to say that we are all super competitive. Take spelling bee participants Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga, who were crowned co-champions of the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday.
During the intense match, Hathwar displayed a healthy rivalry by annoyingly clapping in Janga’s face. All in fun, of course. After the tournament, an overjoyed Hathwar accomplishes his best Dez Bryant celebration. OK, you won. We get it. Kids just wanna have fun.
When you clap in the face of your opponent at the Spelling Bee for spelling a word wrong and spell the clinching word wrong, you better spell the winning word correctly.
Well, sometimes karma bites you. Cough, cough, Mr. Hathwar.
Anyways, great job, guys!
