Wheel of Fortune was better when you could buy a ceramic Dalmatian with your winnings. The game seems more stressful since they added all these enhancements.

I'm in the minority here, I know, but he didn't pronounce it correctly. This is a game concerning words. He should have pronounced it correctly.

Cabinet

He obviously didn't know the word "Curio" so he tried to lip sync it.

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".

He mispronounced the C and used it as a hard K in CURIO.

His gov't skool didn't teach him proper English or perhaps he doesn't know what a CURIO CABINET because he's never heard of one to pronounce it.

He did say it to the best of his ability. He deserved it. Poor English or no knowledge of the furniture, we all know he said it.

Bet if he was black and using ebonics you wouldn't say shit about his pronunciation and think he deserved it.

Re: Man gets screwed out of $1mil on Wheel of Fortune
I think he got tongue tied because he was excited/nervous. I heard him say "corno curo cabinet". Seriously, he correctly said the word that was missing the letter..."cabinet". If he mispronounced the first two words, all the letters were already up there, so who cares? Wheel of Fortune is not a READING game but a GUESSING game, ie, guess the words with missing letters. These ass wipes should have given him the benefit of the doubt, asked him to repeat, and given him the freakin money. But I've seen them do this before (with not so much money in the balance) where someone mispronounced a fully spelled out word and they buzzed the person. Punks. I feel his pain.

He could just say the the missing letter was 'B' and he wouldn't need to pronounce the phrase although I am pretty sure he said 'cabinet'. He'd better call Saul IMHO...

Re: Man gets screwed out of $1mil on Wheel of Fortune
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.
