We have all seen Wheel of Fortune at some point of our lives. We play along, guessing the letters, words, and trying to buy vowels. Maybe you have yelled at the TV in sheer disbelief at the absolute stupidity of some of the contestants.

Maybe you have patted yourself on the back when you got the word right, or shrunk into your couch upon realizing how wrong you really were on that last word.

However, nothing can compare to the embarrassment that Paul felt when he got the pronunciation of a word wrong with a million-dollar prize at stake. It was three words, two of which were completely spelled out. I mean, Helen Keller could have seen and spoken the right words, but nope, not this guy.  The words were “Corner Curio Cabinet.”

Both corner and curio were already spelled out, only leaving the ‘b’ in cabinet blank. Paul was unable to correctly pronounce curio, thus making his answer wrong, and leaving the prize on the already-polished silver platter for the next contestant.

My question is how the next guy felt. If it is was me, I would have been a little hesitant to answer on account that the guy to my right just got an obvious question wrong and might be at high-risk being extremely pissed off.

Check out the video beolw that so generously provides a real ‘wtf’ moment. Can’t help but feel sorry for the guy though as well.
