Did ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Cheat A Guy Out Of 1 Million Dollars? [VIDEO]
Are you a "Wheel Watcher?" If you are, maybe you saw the episode on Tuesday night that has a lot of "Wheel of Fortune" fans a little angry at the show's producers. Honestly, I'm not really sure how I feel about it yet.
It seems a contestant named Paul was about to win a million dollars if he solved the puzzle right and a mispronunciation cost him the money. Now, I 'm pretty sure that in most cases you DO have to read off the puzzle correctly, that way if some letters are missing and you say the word wrong it would show that you really didn't know what the word is. Makes sense. However if that is the "essence" of the rule it would also make sense that if the entire word that you mispronounce has all the letters showing that the word is a "given," right?
Well I'll let you be the judge. Take a look at Paul having a little trouble saying the word, "curio."
