A “Wheel of Fortune” Contestant Missed Out on $1 Million Because He Mispronounced a Word (Video)
Is “Wheel of Fortune” just cheap or are they justified in keeping their money? Some “Wheel of Fortune” fans are outraged after a contestant on Tuesday night’s episode named Paul had a chance to win a MILLION DOLLARS if he could solve the puzzle with only one letter still hidden.
Paul did come up with the correct answer, which was “Corner Curio Cabinet.” (Pronounced “cure-ee-oh”) But he pronounced the word “curio” as “KER-oh.”
Even Pat Sajak seemed surprised and said the producers would listen to the replay to make sure they didn’t cheat him. But they decided NOT to overturn their decision. What??? Decide for yourself if Paul deserved the cash.
