Meet Jacob Williamson, the Most Over-the-Top Spelling Bee Kid Ever (Videos)

Jacob Williamson spelling bee

Normally the kids you see competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee are freakishly composed mini adults who wear sensible shoes and have 401 Ks.

Jacob Williamson is not one of these kids. The 15-year-old from Cape Corporal, Florida, has absolutely no control over his emotions, and during the final round of the National Spelling Bee yesterday he was just totally freaking the hell out.

But wait, you say. He’s 15 years old? Is that even legal? Apparently yes.  Jacob has been trying to make the National Spelling Bee finals for the last three years, studying for eight hours a day. However, it wasn’t until this year, his last year of eligibility, that he made the big dance. So I guess he just could not contain himself.

Take a look:

Did I mention this kid is home schooled? Well he is.

I know, you’re shocked.

Anyway, Jacob Williamson didn’t win the 2014 National Spelling Bee, but he is the only contestant you’re going to remember from this year’s competition.  He totally stole the show, thanks in large part to this performance on his final word of the contest:
