A “Wheel of Fortune” Contestant Missed Out on $1 Million Because He Mispronounced a Word

Some “Wheel of Fortune” fans are outraged, because a contestant on Tuesday night’s episode named Paul had a chance to win a MILLION DOLLARS if he could solve the puzzle…and only one letter was still hidden.

And he DID come up with the correct answer, which was “Corner Curio Cabinet.”  (Pronounced “cure-ee-oh”)  But he pronounced the word “curio” as “KER-oh.”

Even Pat Sajak seemed surprised, and said the producers would listen to the replay to make sure they didn’t cheat him. But they decided NOT to overturn their decision.

He solves the puzzle at :20
