A ‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant has stunned after making the weirdest guesses on the final speed round, and still coming out a winner! Pat Sajak and Vanna White have never seen a player like this!
A woman named Nura rocked Wheel of Fortune with the strangest round in recent memory, choosing unconventional letters — and not getting anything right. But that didn’t matter, because she still came out the grand winner of the entire game. Wait, what?? Click through to watch her slay!
Admit it; you totally play along with Wheel of Fortune at home! And if you’re anything like us, you scream at the screen when you’ve gotten the answer right, and especially when the contestants are getting a super easy answer completely wrong! That’s why Nura’s moves were so puzzling. With an almost empty board, she took three strange moves: guessing Z, X, and nothing at all!
Obviously, this confused hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, along with the other contestants who were quickly racking up letters on the board. Another contestant got the answer easy-peasy: “Following Footsteps.” But it didn’t really matter; Nura walked away the winner by far with a cool $13,970 in her pocket. Damn!
There are two lines of thinking for why Nura played like she did. Either she was just totally over it and tired, or she was just randomly guessing because she already knew she was going to win by a landslide. Pat immediately went over to her after the round and said, “You called some unusual letters in that round,” to which Nura shrugged and simply replied, “That’s what I saw.” It is what it is!
What makes this even more amazing? The round was called “What Are You Doing?” You can’t make this up, folks. We would love to see Nura dominate Jeopardy! next. She would definitely throw Alex Trebek for a loop.
