‘Wheel of Fortune’ viewers defend contestant after she loses car over technicality
It came down to only a few seconds that made a giant difference for a contestant on the Wheel of Fortune.
The game show player, Charlene Rubush , ultimately missed out on winning an Audi Q3 SUV due to a technicality—and viewers swear she was robbed.
Rubush was solving a puzzle during the bonus round and only had a few more empty squares to solve but the delivery of her guess cost her the prize.
During her ten seconds, she guessed the phrase “Choosing the right card,” which was wrong. On her second try, she blurted out, “Choosing the right ― word,” but not before slightly stumbling on her words.
