Spelling Bee Kid Excitedly Misspells 'Kabaragoya' - Watch Video!

The Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals aired on Thursday evening (May 29) and one of the highlights from the competition was a kid named Jacob Williamson getting super excited about knowing a word… only to sadly misspell it.

The 15-year-old contestant from Cape Coral, Florida misspelled the word “kabaragoya,” which is a large lizard that is native to South Asia.

When the announcer said the word, Jacob screamed out, “I know it, I know it, I totally know it!” Sadly, he did not know it and spelled it with a ‘c’ instead of a ‘k’. Watch the video of the moment below!

DO YOU THINK you could spell the word correctly?
