That's so wrong! He said cabinet. One shouldn't be denied a win because of an accent.

I hope lawyers are contacting him. This is what they call in the law "acting in bad faith." I would sue for 100 million because it was both discriminatory (because he has an accent) and intentional (they do not want to pay the money). All of these shows are a scam.

How'd he "get screwed out of a million dollars"?

For one, all that piece provided was the CHANCE to play for a million dollars in the bonus round, IF he won the game and made it to the bonus round and IF he then happened to pick the million dollar envelope from the bonus wheel and then IF he solved and won the bonus round.

Sounds like a looooooooong way from being screwed out of a million dollars like he was owed it for just landing on that puzzle piece.

Also, the game has ALWAYS required that the puzzle be stated exactly as written. No adding an extra letter, no adjectives nor adverbs, no pluralizing, no anything other than reading it exactly as it is. Even when it's spelled completely out.

The guy wasn't screwed out of anything by anyone. He messed up. His fault. Sucked for him, but it was strictly on his own shoulders for being too nervous or whatever else and FAILING at that moment. It's called a consequence of your own actions. No one screwed him out of anything, he just messed up and cost himself.

Sheesh...


Besides... the guy with the real accent... pronounced it.

Really? It sound MUCH more like the government line to be saying: "Aw, he got screwed over because he messed up and didn't win. That's not fair. It's not your fault. It's the evil system of competition. Everyone should win. You got screwed over, so you should get something because of it. We'll take care of it for you, poor thing. That's what we're here for after all."

But the word "curio" was already solved.

Seems that the only word he would be obligated to articulate clearly would be the unsolved word "cabinet".
