    I'd do fairly well with the English words. Unfortunately, the Scripps Spelling Bee gave up on those years ago.

    First word it gave me was Planet which I spelled correctly but it said I was wrong. The second word was vineyard which I spelled correctly but it said I was wrong. I gave up after that.

    4 out of 7. The hardcore German word and italian word are kind of bullshit.(Not sure if everyone gets different words.) All the "English" words, I got right.

    I dunno, but when it comes to Spelling Bees, always put your money on the homeschooled Indian kid with 17 vowels in his last name.

    4/7 the 3 I got wrong were ridiculous :jj: I'd never heard them before and they were like 10-14 letters.

    I'm usually a pretty poor speller though. I always misspell restaurant
