You Can Save a Speller! Here’s How:
Before the first official Spelling Bee round begins, we will auction off a “Save a Speller” opportunity to a guest.
If a team misses a word, the winning guest may choose to save that team from elimination. If this happens, the team remains on stage and the next team receives their word. On their next turn, the saved team must spell the next word correctly to remain in the Bee.
The save must be used before the final round (three or more teams still in the competition).
