A contestant on “Wheel of Fortune” missed out on an easy $7,100 Monday after botching his pronunciation of the word “Flamenco.”
A contestant named “Jonny” may have thought he would easily take the cash home that would come with a trip to Europe. He had a complete answer on the board reading: “Flamenco Dance Lessons.”
But rather than saying “flamenco,” the man said “flamingo” – an exotic pink bird – sending him into a state of disbelief after the show host Pat Sajak buzzed him for a wrong answer.
Jonny’s botched pronunciation meant that his opponent, Ashley, had an easy walk and will be enjoying some of the Jonny’s money somewhere in the sunny parts of Europe.
