You don't look it

Rishubh Kaushal, speller 249, asked Dr. Bailly how he was. So Dr. Bailly reciprocated.

"Mortally terrified," Rishubh said.

"You don't look it," Dr. Bailly replied.


He's probably feeling better after spelling macroplankton correctly. It's the larger of the passively floating or weakly swimming animal and plant life of a body of water which are observable with the naked eye.

Right after him, though, Naomi Catellanos - speller 251 - misspelled cinquain, the five-line verse form of generally iambic cadence.

"Thank you, Dr. Bailly," she said. "It was a pleasure."
