A “Wheel of Fortune” contestant who mixed up “flamenco” and “flamingo” lost $7,100 and a trip to Europe during Monday’s episode.
After contestant Jonny said the answer, host Pat Sajak buzzed him for a wrong answer, and the woman next to him, Ashley, solved the puzzle, winning the cash and trip.
When Jonny looked shocked and distraught, Sajak told him, “To explain, what we all heard was — and I know you didn’t mean to say it, but you gave us a G instead of a C.”
Earlier in the episode, Jonny also flubbed by asking for a C to solve the puzzle “Dog and Pony Show Me the Money” with only three letters missing.
Twitter had a field day with the situation.
Dude on Wheel of Fortune just guessed every letter but 2 in a puzzle. Had “Flamenco Dance Lessons” in front of him and the man said FLAMINGO. Looses all his money and the lady next to him says
“I guess I’ll solve?” Haha too funny

OMG, he spent 20 seconds mumbling “Flamingo” and “Flamenco” to himself.
You just don’t recover from this. It’s over. R.I.P. in peace Jonny pic.twitter.com/xsrJOFswnj

Very best moment I’ve ever seen on Wheel of Fortune: “Flamingo Dance Lessons”.

I wish I had a pic! Did anyone see Johnny’s face on Wheel of Fortune when he lost by saying “flamingo dancing” instead of “flamenco dancing” ???

I’m crazy into Wheel of Fortune right now. The guy just had the entire puzzle on the screen but pronounced “Flamenco” as “Flamingo” & Pat said he didn’t win. He’s mad & I’ve never felt more like an old lady for being so into this debacle. pic.twitter.com/93tF0RstpF
