  • - He who smelt it, spelt it.

  • - Let's talk about that.

  • (playful theme music)

  • Good Mythical Morning.

  • - Every year hundreds of kids come together

  • over their shared passion for Sanskrit roots

  • and Greek suffixes to fight to become

  • the best spellers in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

  • - I love it, and Scripps they've got spelling down

  • to a t-e-e, tee, so we're not gonna do that,

  • we're gonna do something that we're good at.

  • Not spelling, smelling.

  • Welcome to The First Annual

  • Burbank Invitational Smelling Bee.

  • Okay, welcome to the smelling bee arena.

  • Here's how this is gonna work, there's a few steps.

  • So the contestant, which is me in this first round,

  • has an array of smells in front of him,

  • and I'm going to smell each one of these,

  • and the first letter of each smell corresponds

  • to the letters over here on the board.

  • - Yeah, to a word that I know.

  • - Right, and I'm trying to get as many of these letters

  • as I can, so I can make the best possible guess

  • as to what the word is on the board.

  • - And then once you're ready to make your guess,

  • you have to come over here, and you have to spell it,

  • and you'll be spelling a smell,

  • 'cause the word is a smell.

  • The person who gets, if you get it right,

  • then I get the smell dumped on me.

  • If you get it wrong, it's dumped on you.

  • - Yes, let's get started.

  • - Round one.

  • Okay Mr. McLaughlin, smell your first scent.

  • - It's like bread, it's sweet.

  • Cupcake. - Nope.

  • - Muffin, is it a muffin? - Nope.

  • - Is it a donut? - Nope.

  • - I don't know that one.

  • - Move on. - Moving on.

  • - You have other letters you might be able to get,

  • but you didn't get that one.

  • Yeah, you don't even have another guess.

  • - Lemon. - What?

  • - Lemon. - Correct.

  • So you get an L.

  • - Apple. - Right there.

  • - Sauce. - Ooh yeah.

  • Dang it, there you go.

  • - Icy Hot. - Nope.

  • - Menthol. - Nope.

  • - Mint. - Nope.

  • - That's what I've been smelling,

  • it's filling everything, it's so--

  • Ben-Gay.

  • Vaporub, Vicks Vaporub. - Nope.

  • Give up.

  • - Prunes.

  • Raisins. - Don't look at me,

  • I'm not giving you any hints, I don't wanna get dumped on.

  • - It smells exactly like prunes or raisins.

  • Am I anywhere close?

  • Oh, hold on.

  • Peanut butter.

  • - I need one final guess Rhett.

  • - Some kind of icing.

  • - Some kind of icing is not correct.

  • Move over to the center here, look, you've got--

  • - LA, we're in LA.

  • - You got two out of five letters here, Rhett.

  • - Blade. - I love

  • the smell of blades.

  • - Glade, oh, you know what.

  • - Remember spelling bee rules apply Rhett, so--

  • - Can I have the origin of this smell?

  • - You may, this smell originates from my wicked smaht

  • cousin Patty's annual bake down in Worcester.

  • - Bake, a bake, annual bake in Worcester?

  • It's not glade, it's not blade, for some reason

  • those are the only things I can think of.

  • - We need your spelling Rhett.

  • - Claws, claws.

  • - Spell it. - C-l-a-w-s.

  • - That is not correct Rhett, the correct answer is

  • C- - No, wait, wait, wait,

  • I was close.

  • - Oh clam, bake, it's a bake.

  • - Wicked smaht.

  • Here you go.

  • (Rhett screams)

  • You didn't get the hair.

  • There we go.

  • Ew, it stinks.

  • Ew, that is a smell.

  • - Round two.

  • time because all I can smell is clams.

  • Smells like Spaghetti-Os.

  • Spaghetti, Chef Boyardee.

  • - So close.

  • - Marinara, lasagna, Italian food.

  • - Marinara tomato sauce.

  • - Yes, okay. - T for tomato.

  • - Where's it go, hold on.

  • - [Stevie] Above the line.

  • - Above the line. - Put it below the line,
