We’re so happy!
Just like Lily Tomlin‘s character in Grace and Frankie, the Scripps National Spelling Bee is one of our favorite times of the year.
The winners were none other than 13-year-old Vanya Shivashankar and 14-year-old Gokul Venkatachalam, both of whom have competed in the Bee since 2012.
And you may actually recognize Vanya from another show — She was was the winner (and our fav) of Lifetime‘s Child Genius competition this season where she beat out that 11-year-old who just graduated from college.
Prior to the 2014 event, a draw hadn’t happened for Scripps since 1962 — and now it’s happened twice in a row!
Congratulations. C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S. Congratulations, Vanya and Gokul!
