Numb Nut?

This got me laughing. Here is Sameer Mishra who won the Scripps 2008 National Spelling Bee. These kids get tough words but this word stumped Sameer ... at least for a short moment.

I'm surprised that kid is old enough to be in high school, but this was funny. Especially the commentator going , "What did he call him?!"

I don't understand what is on the back of his card. I don't think he'd be cheating, but he seemed to suddenly get it after looking at it.

@Ashley - i think he traced out the word with his finger on the back of the card, to help him visualize it.

this video make me wonder...
now that spelling bee's have grown in popularity and are being televised, are the competitors being manipulated by the writer/producers? did the bee's always have these humorous misunderstandings or are the producers doing this on purpose to add entertainment value?
