‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant told to hide after ’embarrassing’ flop
Another Wheel of Fortune contestant found themselves a trending item on Twitter this week after she whiffed on a seemingly easy answer.
Florida’s Angie Gautney told host Pat Sajak that the game show was a life-long obsession with her family and shared an anecdote that her father would watch broadcasts of the long-running program earlier in the day on satellite TV to make the rest of his clan think he knew all the answers.
But Gautney went from having a light-hearted laugh with Sajak to becoming the butt of jokes on social media when it came time for her to solve a puzzle in the “Food & Drink” category.
Gautney was trying to finish the phrase, with the answer being, “WARM TOASTED BAGELS WITH LOX AND CREAM CHEESE.”
With the puzzle almost solved, Gautney guessed “Warm toasted bagels with low and cream cheese?”
