We know the suspense has been killing you, so we'll get right to it. The winner of the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee is...Arvind Mahankali! Was there ever any doubt?!

Arvind won the day by correctly spelling the word 'knaidel' and with the stress of the competition suddenly falling away, Mr. Mahankali (as he now deserves to be called) did not hesitate to show his joy to the world.

Did you see it? Did you see the joy? No, neither did we. But it is probably the first time in history that nonchalance and confetti cannons have occurred at the same time.

Congratulations Mr. Mahankali! You won a free pair of shades.
