    It seems like every year or so you see a clip from someone making a cringeworthy mistake on Wheel of Fortune. What are your favorite worst mistakes you saw in person live or from archive video?

    I see all sorts of them on the Internet but none come anywhere close to what I saw live as a kid which I believe aired in 1985 doing research (I may have saw a rerun "live" later).

    Someone span the wheel with a very long multi word phrase and landed on $5000. They asked for a "T". The phrase was

    STAR LIGHT STAR BRIGHT FIRST STAR I SEE TONIGHT

    $5000*8 for $40,000 dollars on one letter.

    And then the contestant either then or after more spins tried to solve the puzzle and perhaps flustered uttered, "Star Light Star Bright First Star *A* See Tonight". Pat Sajak was very apologetic and I think since the entire board was full the next contestant solved the puzzle for zero dollars.

    Talk about epic fail!

    That's a rough one..

    I love Wheel of Fortune and Price is Right blunders. The words and phrases seem so easy for most everyone watching from home. We just don't have the same pressure as the ones up on the stage. It's funny how that pressure can block out even the simplest of words.

    This is my favorite WOF fail:

    I don't know if I'd ever be able to get over that one! I always try not to make fun of or judge people who mess up an obvious word or phrase because I can 100% see myself buckling under the pressure, as well.
