Could "New Day" Anchors Be Spelling Bee Champions?

A spelling bee in Missouri goes on for five hours before being called a tie.

After 66 rounds, the organizers of the Kansas City event used up their entire list and they had no words left.

The contestants, fifth-grader Sophia Hoffman and seventh-grader Kush Sharma, will now face off in a rematch on March 8 and the winner will get a slot in the National Spelling Bee in Washington.

We asked the kids if they could challenge our "New Day" anchors with complicated words so watch the video above to see if Chris Cuomo nailed 'Pfeffernuss' or not.
