If you want more "oomph!" and "ouch!" and "WOW. That really hurts!!" in your spelling bees, then DO NOT MISS tonight's hilarioso Rumble Bee's Revenge! Unlike any spelling bee you've witnessed before, Rumble Bee pits regular people in ridiculous spelling competitions such as the "speed round," "single letter round," AND the mind-numbingly difficult "Unscramble round." It's like The Hunger Games! Except with letters instead of Peeta.
Plus! You'll see the hilarious improv antics of Action/Adventures' Alex Falcone as your host (along with the very funny Scott Simon, and Hadas Cassoria) and ME (Wm.™ Steven Humpy) as the special lower-tier celebrity judge! OH, but that's not all. House cheerleaders Spell's Belles will be on hand to cheer the contestants on, AND there will be free snackage provided by Voodoo Doughnuts.
Best of all, Rumble Bee is a benefit for Speaking Out on Sibling Sexual Abuse—a non-profit that helps survivors of sibling sexual abuse. Do you want to help them, too? YES YOU DO. Here are the deets:
