Spelling Bee 2016 Results: Co-Champion Celebrates Like Dez Bryant (VIDEO)
Nihar Janga and Jairam Hathwar won the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday night – the third year in a row that the contest has had co-champions.
Nihar, nicknamed “The Machine,” broke social media overnight by celebrating like his idol Dallas Cowboys player Dez Bryant after he spelled gesellschaft correctly to win.
He also “taunted” Jairam multiple times during the night, much to the delight of social media.
Dez Bryant congratulated Nihar after his win.
Jairam’s brother Sriram won the Spelling Bee in 2014.
