Fans Outraged After ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Refuses To Give Prize To Woman Who Answered Correctly

Fans of “Wheel of Fortune” are protesting, believing contestant Megan was wrongfully denied $40,000 for a potentially correct response. Megan, a high school choir director from California, faced a bonus puzzle under the “Living Thing” category. The incomplete phrase “_ N’R _ _ ” eventually revealed “P_N’ RC _ D” after Megan’s letter choices.

In the final seconds, Megan guessed something like “Pink Orchid.” When the correct answer, “Pink Orchid,” was revealed, Megan expressed frustration. Host Pat Sajak, sensing her disappointment, pulled out the prize card, showing a potential $40,000 prize, far exceeding the $14,007 she received.

Viewers vented their frustration online. One complained, “The woman got screwed on the #WheelOfFortune bonus puzzle tonight; she totally said ‘PINK ORCHID’ right at the start.” Another added, “I lip read and use subtitles because I am deaf in one ear. She said ‘Pink Orchid.’ Without a doubt!”

Fans urged the show to review the footage, believing Megan deserved the prize. This incident follows other recent criticisms of the show, including a controversial decision during a “Rhyme Time” category on January 22, where viewers contested the ruling on the phrase “Absolutely Positively,” arguing it did not rhyme.
