It’s hard enough to win big on Wheel of FortuneThe rules make it more difficult. After a contestant made a rookie error, fans of the show expressed their disappointment.
A tiny technicality cost the contestant the big prize
Chris Davidson was asked to solve a puzzle in order to win an $8,400 vacation package to Puerto Rico. However, he lost because of a technicality. Davidson added an additional article to his puzzle answer, which meant he missed the chance to win the prize.
Davidson replied, “A frozen concoction,”He quickly realized that he had made a mistake. He quickly realized his error and repeated his response without the article. “I’m sorry, we can’t accept that,”Pat Sajak replied. Another contestant was able to answer the question, and took home the prize.
“Chris knows what he did, which is why he went back,” Sajak explained. “He threw in that article. He threw in the ‘A’ in front of it, and we can’t accept it. Just the way it goes. It’s just one of the rules, and we gotta go by ’em, and Carol ends up getting the trip to Puerto Rico.”
Fans’ Reactions to the Slip-Up
While viewers of the show were aware that rules exist, they still sympathized with Davidson’s loss on a minor technicality. “I genuinely feel bad for this guy,”One person tweeted. One other person wrote: “Can’t be putting articles in your answers pal!”
“I thought they could correct themselves before the buzzer,” one fan wondered. Someone else replied, “The rule, I believe, is they can correct themselves as long as they haven’t finished the last word in the puzzle. He did it after he finished ‘concoction.’”
Even though Davidson didn’t end up getting the trip to Puerto Rico, he didn’t go home empty-handed. He made it to the final round and was awarded $13,900 in prize cash. Future contestants on the show can definitely learn a lesson from Davidson’s tiny mistake, which ended up costing him big.
