The 13-year-old eighth-grader at Jackson Memorial Middle School correctly spelled gradus (a dictionary of Greek or Latin phrases used as an aid in the writing of verse), chaudfroid (a type of jellied sauce) and cantal (a hard cheddar type cheese) in the earlier final rounds.

Karthik Nemmani of McKinney, Texas, was declared champion of the 2018 Scripps US National Spelling Bee on Thursday night, winning on the word "koinonia".

While kids participating in the United States spelling bee are spelling convoluted words like "pratincolous" at the moment, it turns out that most of us are still having a hard time spelling words like "beginning" and "probably" correctly.

"I had confidence, but I didn't really think it would happen", Karthik said.

That's a record number of spellers for the prime-time finals, and it could mean a late-night finish to a longer-than-usual week. Fans can head to the Spelling Bee's official Twitter to view live updates from Thursday's final rounds. He qualified for the nationals under the bee's new invitational program, "RSVBee", that allowed those who didn't win a regional bee to apply for the nationals. "It's been a great experience, spelling, and meeting a lot of brilliant people".

But when Bailly got his first free moments, he stayed in the room where the spellers competed.

Abhijay Kodali, 11, of Flower Mound, Texas, tied for third, lasting until Round 16.

"I wouldn't say it was revenge", he said.

Nemmani won the title during the finals, consisting of 16 spellers, the largest group ever included in the final broadcast round. Each speller stood in front of the microphone and saw the bright lights at least once as the Bee trimmed its massive pool Tuesday and Wednesday.

She said she struggled with the "ae" because that's not normally seen in German.
