The fourth one (Rebecca Sealfon) who spelled euonym rather enthusiastically was homeschooled. I remember when she won.

most of those were funny, but thanks for the warning on the last one! I think the interviewer made it worse for him - he trained for spelling bees not interviews (obviously).

I've seen that clip before. The kid obviously has something like Asperger's and is highly intelligent. He'd be "weird" no matter what the method of schooling.
