Video: ESPN’s Steele Gets Snigdha Nandipati, Stuti Mishra Mixed Up After Scripps Spelling Bee

| by Alex Groberman

In case you missed it, the latest Scripps National Spelling Bee has come and gone. And while ESPN’s venture into the wonderful world of s-p-e-l-l-i-n-g is still more of an acquired taste than anything else, there is no denying that the event has seemingly morphed into something of a big deal over the last few years. How big of a deal? Big enough of a deal for ESPN’s own personalities to not know what’s going in the aftermath of the event concluding, apparently.

On Thursday night, 14-year-old Snigdha Nandipati won the competition in thrilling fashion. Or, you know, in mildly interesting fashion. Shortly after she took home the top prize, ESPN’s Samantha Steele came over to get a few words from the champ. Nothing out of the ordinary there, right? Sure, so long as Steele doesn’t accidentally try to interview the wrong little Indian girl…

To be fair, it’s not as if the two girls were wearing giant signs with their names on them or anything. Oh, wait…
