Saryn Hooks Was Robbed!!!!
[Finola Hackett, front and Saryn Hooks, back]
The 2006 Scripps National Spelling Bee was on last night. Let me just say that these kids are insanely smart or they have really good memory. Out of the 100 or so words that were given, I spelled like 1 of them correctly. I'm really dumb though, so that's an accomplishment all on its own. Very early on I started to root for the stunningly gorgeous, Saryn Hooks from North Carolina. In the 8th round Saryn was knocked out, because she spelled the word "hechescher" incorrectly. However, at the beginning of the 9th round the judges realized she spelled the word correctly and they had it wrong. WTF?! Those dumb asses. Saryn being the class act she is didn't create a stink. My ghetto ass would've started hootin' and hollerin' and demanded they give me the trophy now! Saryn managed to not get ghetto and found herself in the championship round with two other chicks: Finola Hackett from Canada and Katharine Close from NJ.
Saryn didn't last very long in the final round and was eliminated when she spelled the word "icteritious" wrong. I was surprised she didn't say to the judges "Are you sure? Double check, because you screwed that shit up last time." Anyway, Finola fucked up too and Katharine Close won. The winning word was "ursprache". Big deal!
Saryn will go on to bigger and better things like teen modeling and soap opera acting. So she doesn't give a hell!
