Jimmy Kimmel Offered People $100 If They Could Spell Dwyane Wade Correctly

Friday June 20th, 2014

Jimmy Kimmel sent a camera crew out on to the street offering $100 to anyone able to correctly spell the name of Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, and the results were about what you would expect.

One man even manages to nail the transposed Y-A, only to fall flat by adding an I to his last name. Luckily, the Kimmel crew had Scripps Spelling Bee co-champs Ansun Sujoe and Sriram Hothwar on hand recently, and they were able to overcome Wade's unconventional spelling, and split yet another prize.
