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.

I bet if he walked into a furniture store and asked to buy a corno curro cabinet they would know exactly what he meant, and they would not activate the buzzer and push him out of the store.

^This. The guy still would've had to win the game, spin the final wheel and hit the 1 million card, and win the Final puzzle. I've seen lots of people get the one million in the regular game and not win the chance to play for that million. If this 'controversy' was on the Final puzzle at the end, then this would have some legs. Anyone suggesting he can fight this with lawyers has not watched the game in a while.

I couldn't understand his answer, the audio stinks, what did he say? I bet his wife made him sleep on the couch.

Corne Hole is a sinkhole in Louisianna that is growing bigger and swallowing whole sections of land, trees and all. It is very weird. There was one video of many trees slowly sinking into the water.

Re: Man gets screwed out of $1mil on Wheel of Fortune
Just because you land on the million dollar wedge doesn't mean you get a million dollars. You have to pick the right letter where the envelope is AND guess the puzzle correctly. So far only one person has one the million. Plus this new Wheel of Fortune Express thing is just disastrous for other players if the player like Louis answers correctly. He had a unfair advantage.

Total bullshit.

He pronounced cabinet correctly which is the only word that matters.

The other two words were already solved.

He should have won for just saying cabinet.

It's always been that way on Wheel of Fortune. You have to pronounce the words exactly! That's why you'll see people speaking slowly and taking their time to enunciate properly.

Well, I guess he really got screwed out of about $500,000. Aren't game show winnings taxed at nearly 50% ?

Well, I rarely watch the show but I do know you don't GET the million right then and there. It's a SUPER low probability to win that. You have to go to the final round and actually pick the million prize out of like 20 different prizes and then solve the final puzzle. If he made it to the final round and solved the puzzle, then I would be more up in arms.
