Another ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Fail
How come when people decide to be stupid, they can't avoid doing it on national television? And on game shows no less!
Falling down while chasing a runaway car is one thing, guessing the wrong puzzle THREE TIMES IN A ROW on "Wheel of Fortune" is another. Why America, why?
"After middle contestant Lindsey scores a “P,” revealing the “Landmark” category puzzle to be “THE P _ _ NTED DESERT,” she incorrectly guesses “The Pointed Desert.” Following that, participant James guesses, yep, the exact same phrase: “The Pointed Desert.”
Host Pat Sajak then explained that James still had more time to guess again, to which the confused contestant nervously muttered, “Oh I still have time?”
After saying nothing else — after again being prompted by Sajak — James uses that allocated clock to unconfidently specify that he’d like to solve the puzzle. He then guesses — yes, again — “The Pointed Desert,” bringing the number of attempts to solve the puzzle with that non-landmark to three.
“It’s not ‘The Pointed Desert,’ no matter how many times you say it,” Sajak shot back, to the noticeable delight of letter-turner Vanna White."
I just don't get it. I'm no brainiac, but come on! "Pointed Desert"????
