George Plimpton is an American journalist, writer, literary editor, and actor.


George Plimpton was the host of the Spellympics. During the Spellympics, Plimpton plugged his George Plimpton Hotplate. When the Spellympics got down to its three finalists, Plimpton spoke to Lisa privately. He told Lisa that if she threw the Spellympics, she would get into any of the Seven Sisters colleges that she wanted. However, Lisa refused to throw the competition.

The day of the finale, Plimpton gave Sun Moon the word "weather", but gave her a sentence with both "weather" and "whether" in. As a result, Sun Moon got eliminated. Plimpton then gave Alex the word "rigged", which he spelled correctly. When it came to Lisa's turn, Lisa told the crowd that she had been told to throw the competition, but was refusing to do so. She then spelled the word "intransigence". However, she misspelled the word accidentally and lost. Since she spoke out against Plimpton and the competition, Plimpton told Lisa that she would get nothing.
