Is This the Worst “Wheel of Fortune” Mistake Ever?
It's "College Week" on "Wheel of Fortune", and on Tuesday, a senior from Reed College in Portland, Oregon named Zach made it to the final puzzle . . . then completely BLEW IT.
All but two letters were showing, but the answer was obviously "Magic blank-A-N-D." Somehow, Zach guessed "magic hand . . . magic band . . . magic yand . . . sand . . . vand . . . cand . . . jand . . . pand . . . fand . . . everything BUT "magic wand".
He realized what it was right after he ran out of time. So if he'd said it a half-second sooner, he would have won a Toyota Prius.
