This Wheel Of Fortune Contestant’s Unusual Strategy Brought Tears To Everyone’s Eyes
7Television game shows attract some interesting people. The stranger the contest, the stranger the people that want to compete. The audience loves it and the network loves the money they make from it. Wheel of Fortune is usually a more intellectual show, though. You have to be pretty clever to solve those complex puzzles. That’s why everyone in the audience was shocked by one woman’s strange guesses.
An Honorable Episode
This strange episode took place during Veterans’ Week. In order to honor those in the service, all three contestants had been or were currently in the military. This was sure to make for an interesting game.
The three contestants were Steve, Tory, and Nura. The third contestant, Nura Fountana, seemed to be the clear winner. She earned over $13,000 in the first few rounds alone.
A Turn For The Worse
Unfortunately, Nura’s luck started to run out. She began picking strange letters during the speed round, like Z, Q, and X. This surprised the competition since the usual strategy is to choose common letters.
In the end, she lost out on $33,000. The winning phrase was “by appointment,” which clearly contains no odd letters. Viewers both in the studio and at home were baffled by this woman’s terrible guessing abilities.
All Is Revealed
When the game was finally over, Nura revealed her strategy. She actually didn’t want to win any more money than what she had already won in the first few rounds. This made the audience question her even more. Who competes in a game show just to lose?
However, Nura had a good reason to do this. She felt that all of the veterans that participated in the show should go home with something. Of course, after hearing that, the audience forgave her strange behavior. Her actions were honorable, after all.
