"Thanks for making us viral, partner."
The endless stream of clips of regular folks sounding dumb is the single best thing about Wheel of Fortune. There are so many great clips of people shouting clueless guesses that it seems like you have just as good chance of winding up in a viral fail clip as you do of winning. Fail vid immortality was the only prize for a pair of contestants on a recent episode, who gave an incredibly odd guess for the category "Around the House."
Everyone loves to pile on when Wheel contestants, but who knows how any of us would act under hot lights in front of Pat and Vanna? And in the woman's defense, "microwave" ends with an "e" and would've fit in the space provided. The guess isn't as bad as the one given by this guy, or this guy. And it didn't result in Pat walking away in disgust. It won't go down as one of the all-time Wheel blunders, but it was bad enough that she'll probably hear about it every time she makes popcorn.
