Wheel of Fortune fans are not happy after a contestant recently lost over a small technicality. They are now calling for the rule to be changed on the long-running game show. In a recent episode, contestant David Peterson lost because he added the word “and” to his answer.
For instance, the show’s crossword puzzles usually have four words to solve. David answered, “Soul, Flounder, Cod, and Catfish.” Pat was forced to say that was the wrong answer and let another contestant win because they didn’t say the word “and.” Seems a little unfair, doesn’t it? That’s what many fans thought, too!
Fans are upset over ‘Wheel of Fortune’ technicality
This small slip of the tongue can cost contestants big money and prizes. This wasn’t the first time this happened either! A few years ago, a contestant named Kristen Shaw made the same error and lost almost $2,000 and a trip to Nashville.
Fans went to social media to complain. This led to a statement from the show. A spokesperson said, “Our long-standing rule is that in order to have a correct puzzle solve, a contestant must say only what is on the board without adding words. Contestants are thoroughly briefed prior to the show, and Pat often reminds them of this rule when solving a puzzle in this particular category.”
Even though it caused a big stir, David was still able to go home with $1,000. What do you think about this Wheel of Fortune rule?
