Jacob Williamson captured America's hearts with a series of shrieks and flails at yesterday's Scripps National Spelling Bee, and when his time came up courtesy of "kabaragoya" he did not let us down.

Williamson yelled "I know it!! I know it!!!" upon hearing his word in the tenth round of the finals, but went with a hard C instead of a K to start, and soon after heard the bell signalling the end of his run, which prompted a hilariously indignant "What?!?" from the 15-year old.

Thankfully, the internet knew exactly what to do next.

Say what you want about Jacob, but he does not lack confidence. [Larry Brown Sports|Guyism]
