Because actual spelling bees aren't quite stressful enough, ABC Family's Spell-Mageddon (every other spelling-related pun was apparently taken) will hit their lineup later this summer. Perhaps inspired by Oh Sit! (CW's musical-chair obstacle course) or Killer Karoke (truTV's karaoke obstacle course), this spelling bee includes "hilarious distractions" while contestants also work at correctly spelling challenging words. How about S-H-A-M-E-L-E-S-S?
