WATCH: It got seriously heated at the Scripps National Spelling Bee
For the third year in a row, the Scripps National Spelling Bee ended in a tie--and this year it got intense between the co-champions.
Like at this juncture:
Jairam Hathwar, from Houston, TX, and Nihar Janga, from Painted Post, NY, each knocked out the other contestants in 25 rounds, spelling insane words like "appetitost" to take home the grand prize.

Hopefully, they are able to share the prize ...
