After six weeks and thousands of applicants, we’ve finally arrived at 2015’s grand finale of ‘The Great Australian Spelling Bee.” Tonight with the returning top twenty-six watching on our six finalists will battle if out for the title of Australia’s best speller. Anirudh, Grace D, Harrison, Mica, Marko and Hapita must draw on everything they’ve experienced up until this point in order to make it through to the final Spelling Bee in which two will enter and be crowned. The finale will take place over three rounds with two spellers being knocked out in each. The first round will be “Speed Spell” but no ordinary one. This week the contestants will have a choice of categories for each of their spells ranging from food to geography. In order to decide the order of spelling as well as the order of picking their respective categories the finalists partakes in a new challenge, “Dictionary Dash.” As the pronouncer gives a word the spellers must locate it and highlight it in a Macquarie dictionary before spelling and defining the word. The first person each round wins their spot in the order of “Speed Spell.” Following “Speed Spell” the spellers will face off in knock-out round of “Letter-By-Letter.” Get a letter wrong and you’re knocked out of the competition. This leaves us with our final two spellers in an epic spell-off after which one will be anointed “The Great Australian Spelling Bee” champion for 2015.
