Can non-Indians win spelling bee?

Can non-Indians win spelling bee? Beats me too, How can Indians learn million languages of their own and learn English additionally to an extent of winning spelling bee? Apparently they do, with “yemm..wo..wo and then yenn”.

If you look at other side of this, Spelling bee cannot be conducted in any Indian languages. Only English (I think) have this privilege.  None of them have this “disability” of “not spelling what is pronounced” and “not pronouncing what is written”. In other words, almost all Indian languages (with has script e.g Hindi), any word can be pronounced only one way and written too, no ambiguity. I heard rest of the Asian languages are designed this way too, Arabic, Chinese etc.

Anyways, enjoy this Young Turks video on latest spelling bee.
