“Wheel of Fortune” followers had been left bewildered after a contestant on the present seemingly gave the proper reply … and so they took to social media to voice their grievances.
Here is the deal … Megan, a highschool choir director from California, received the episode of ‘WOF’ that aired Tuesday, pocketing simply over $14k and launching herself into the bonus puzzle spherical.
Her class … “Residing Factor” — did not precisely slender it down for her. And, the given letters “RSTLNE” did not actually clear issues up with the puzzle studying “_ _N_ _R_ _ _ _.”
Megan did nicely, including three letters to the puzzle earlier than the ultimate spherical started … so she was working off “P_N_ _RC_ _ D” for the ultimate, two-word puzzle.
Now, that is the place issues bought dicey … originally of guessing, Megan undoubtedly says “Orchid” — finally the second phrase of the puzzle — although it appears like she says “One thing” or, as some followers speculated, “Pink” earlier than it, which might’ve given her the suitable reply, “Pink Orchid.”
The judges did not award her the cash — which turned out to be $40,000 — and host Pat Sajak mentioned he thought she centered an excessive amount of on looking for a sure form of orchid … Megan mentioned “Pony Orchid” at one level.
Effectively, followers of the present misplaced their rattling minds on social media … principally arguing they felt she clearly mentioned it originally and demanding ‘Wheel’ hand over the bag.
It is definitely onerous to inform precisely what she mentioned to start her guessing … but it surely appears like “One thing” to us — and Megan reacts unsurprised when she’s not awarded the money — so perhaps every part’s above board right here.
Heck of an issue for Sajak’s final season on the present … or perhaps he was speaking a couple of previous treason? Laborious to make out the precise phrases.
