Celebrities Spellers Take Part In 'A Spelling Bee For Cheaters'

Glee’s Dianna Agron, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, director Spike Jonze and author David Eggers have one thing in common: they can all spell their faces off. Well…kinda.

This past weekend, the foursome participated in “A Spelling Bee for Cheaters: A Tournament of Verbal Smarts and Fraudulence.” The event raised money for 826LA — a nonprofit co-founded by Eggers to help students develop writing skills.

“I am nervous,” Agron told AOL News before the event. “The technology that we use as crutches these days … I may be cursing spell check at the end of Saturday!”

But in all honesty, you didn’t really have to be a good speller to win.

Contestants had the option to choose from a variety of cheats that ranged from a $100 for a one-letter hint to $25,000 for immunity.

“You’re basically invincible!” read the contest rules. “You’ve raised $25,000!?!? You get double the cheats.”

Sounds like fun!

Check out the video below to see Agron do a little spellin’ and then stop by 826la.org to learn more about the organization. We’re pretty sure you’re going to love it!
