'Jeopardy!,' 'Wheel of Fortune' Contestants Stumped By Embarrasing Flubs
Contestants on Jeopardy! often find themselves stumped by Final Jeopardy, but one woman really blew it because she was literally wearing the correct answer.
The question: "Meant to evoke a person with arms outstretched and pointed downward, it was designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom."
The answer: The peace sign. No one got it right.
When it was Sandie Baker's turn, she didn't have a clue. But she was wearing the peace sign right on her earrings.
Luckily for Baker, she went on to win. But she's really embarrassed by her flub, writing on Facebook: "Well, I should have seen this coming."
Just last week, another embarrassing flub on America's top-rated game show Wheel of Fortune had the nation buzzing.
Contestant Julian Batts lost out on a million dollars because he mispronounced Achilles, pronouncing it A-Chilis.
Another contestant said, "I'll solve! Mythological hero Achilles," pronouncing it correctly.
The Indiana University freshman also blew a chance to win a new car, but failed to guess this puzzle with just two letters missing.
Other contestant said, "Can I solve? The World's Fastest Man."
Now, Julian is being called the worst Wheel of Fortune contestant ever. Julian later explained that he was just too nervous to pronounce the words correctly.
Now, the woman wearing the peace symbol is left to wonder what might have been.
