This Wheel of Fortune Contestant Is Super Committed to the Wrong Puzzle Answer

Pin It
All right, seriously, stop trying to make "The Pointed Desert" happen!

We have seen a lot of good Wheel of Fortune fails over the past couple of months, but this one is unlike anything we've ever seen before. Even Pat Sajak is not quite sure how to handle it.

In case you're more of a reader than a watcher, here's the situation: The contestants are trying to guess a landmark and they have "The P__nted Desert" already on the board.

The middle contestant is not quite sure and guesses "The Pointed Desert," which is fair enough. It totally could have been that. Unfortunately, it wasn't, and after Pat lets her know that's wrong, we move on to James, the guy on the right...

"The Pointed Desert," he confidently proclaims. Dude, James...she JUST said that. Don't worry, though, he still has some time left and he has another guess, "I'd like to solve. 'The Pointed Desert!'"

Clearly James' nerves got the best of him, but at least he had a sense of humor about the whole thing and was able to laugh it off after the contestant on the right figured out that it was "The Painted Desert."
