LOl Hulk Smash! Someone should definately do a "Hulk does Wheel of Fortune" video. They could have other characters mispronouncing words. Maybe Bane from Batman or someone else who would have trouble speaking or have funny reaction to not winning.

I seen this while watching Wheel the other night. I think it was all a set up. They threw in some new feature in the 2nd round and the Latino went on a winning streak. I'd personally of backhanded old Pat and went ballistic. Not for the money, but for them cheating. But, it is Vegas... The were probably keeping with the theme of ripping people off.

Even if he pronounced it right, he would not have won $1m. He wins the opportunity on the bonus round to pull a $1m card which he would then win if he wins the bonus round.

 Quoting: Barrack Hussein Obama


I have wet dreams about doing that. Sucker makes 8 million a year, for doing what? Being a part of the dumbing down of America is what. Vanna White makes I think 3 million a year. Do either of them seat or bleed at work? Do their backs hurt? Do the ever go hungry from working though lunch? Put in 70 to 90 hours a week?

Talk about casting pearls before swine.

(I have to hear that damn show because Dad died and I'm helping Mom get things together and I'm brutally punished with game show crap day in and day out. That and other garbage like Ellen, Oz, Matlock, Shark Tank, Hallmark arrrgh...For one more month!)


I think I would've thrown Vanna down on that wheel and jumped on her while it was spinning at least 76 rpm. And make Pat watch.

So is that tramp Vanna.

She undoubtedly has THE easiest, high-paying job in America.

The only way they could make it easier is by giving her an electric cart.
 Quoting: Barrack Hussein Obama


I looked it up and she's been doing that "job" since 1982.

Think about that . . . for 31 YEARS, give or take some time off for various things, she's been standing up there, wearing designer gowns, walking a few steps to turn letters, and applauding . . . and has no doubt made an absolute fortune doing so.

And then there's this:
White sued the Samsung Electronics corporation over its use of a humorous ad featuring a robot turning letters on a game show. The lower court decision in Samsung's favor was reversed by the United States Court of Appeals . . . White ultimately was awarded $403,000 in damages.

WHAT exactly were her frigging "damages"?????

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.

DAMN YOU'RE GOOD..

i was watching "live" yesterday, he totally said it wrong, he was like wtf at first, but they said they were going to check the tape during commercial, and when they came back the guy was laughing at himself and embarassed. He ended up solving the very next puzzle, and made a point of going very slow and clear when he said it, and everybody laughed with relief. It doesn't matter if the whole puzzle is revealed, you still have to say it correctly or you lose the turn.
