Four special guests will star as "guest spellers" every night at the show. Guests include Jon Curl, who is better known as JonJon on Q102 (Thursday), Dr. Karen Cheser, Superintendent of Fort Thomas Independent Schools and Matt Bertasso, principal of Highlands High School (Friday), Maryanne Zeleznik, News Director and Morning Edition Host for WVXU (Saturday) and Tricia Macke, Evening Anchor for Fox 19 (Sunday).
While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation!
