Wheel Of Fortune Host Confused When Contestant Starts Guessing Bizarre Letters, But Her Explanation Will Touch Your Heart.


We’ve shared some great stories with you before about game shows. Remember the “Jeopardy!” contestant who competed while battling terminal cancer? How about the time Steve Harvey gave an amazing motivational speech during “Family Feud?” Once again, we’re sharing an incredible story that takes place on a game show, but this time its “Wheel of Fortune.”

“Wheel of Fortune” recently had their first-ever veteran’s week. As the contestants– all veterans– neared the final round, veteran Nura Fountano was solidly in the lead. But when the final round came, she stunned host Pat Sajack by guessing the letter Z.

“Say that again for me? Did you say Z?”

“As in Zulu,” she responded. “Z.”

After that, things got even more bizarre. Nura asked for an X, then took too long to answer, missing on an opportunity to come back from the mistake.

…But was it a mistake?

After the round, Pat questioned Nura’s strange letter choices. “May I ask you a question? You called some unusual letters that round!” Nura shrugged his question off saying, “That’s what I saw.”

Like Pat, watchers were initially really confused by Nura’s actions.


But then people began to figure out what was up… Nura had thrown the round on purpose so that a fellow veteran could win some money! The praises for Nura’s actions came pouring in!




Nura lost the round (obviously), and the cash was awarded to a contestant named Steve, also a veteran. Steve had started that round with just $1,600 but– by the end of the round– his winnings had totaled at $6,400.

Nura went on to win the show, even with the thrown round, and all three veterans walked away with winnings!
