It’s almost party time, and that means it’s time for the final clue in the Bonjean holiday bash celeb guessing game!

ITK has continued what’s become an Christmas-time tradition: guessing which Hollywood pro will join the festivities at GOP strategist Ron Bonjean and his wife Sara's annual Washington-area holiday party.

The last clue before the invite-only Saturday shindig may finally spell out the answer for ITK readers.


The clue is a scene from the 2013 film “Bad Words,” in which a youngster goes head-to-head with actor Jason Bateman in the finals of a spelling bee. The young boy wins after Bateman’s character intentionally misspells the word “callithump.”

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “callithump” means a “noisy boisterous band or parade.”

Past guests at the Bonjeans’ bonanza have included rapper and reality TV vet Flavor Flav, “Cheers” star George Wendt, “Saved by the Bell’s” principal Dennis Haskins, actor Gary Busey, “CHiPs” actor Erik Estrada and “The Karate Kid’s” Ralph Macchio.
