AND IT'S OVER: Congratulations to Sai Gunturi of Dallas, Texas, who just won the National Spelling Bee. It was his fourth trip to the national finals.

Sai's final word, in round fifteen? Pronounced poe-koh-kyoo-RAN-tee, meaning "indifferent" or "apathetic", language of origin being Italian, via Latin.

Sai didn't have to think more than a few seconds before spelling it properly: pococurante [highlight space to reveal]

Immediately after winning, Sai told the ESPN reporter that he plans to spend his winnings on "a lot of video games". Good for him.
