WATCH: Was This The Biggest ‘Wheel of Fortune’ EPIC FAIL in History? (Video)
Top Right News ^ | 04-12-2014 | TopClip

A contestant named Julian from Indiana University must be feeling pretty stupid right about now. And Hoosiers can't be feeling too proud.

Julian had the chance to win $1 million Friday night, had the puzzle fully solved, and then lost because he pronounced Achilles like “A-chill-us.” Because of that mistake, the show decided not to give him the victory and instead, one of the other contestants who know the “mythological hero” got the chance to steal and did. (To win the full $1 million he would have had to overcome some other hurdles as well.)

But alas, poor Julian' disastrous goof-ups were not over yet. Not by a longshot.

Next up, he could have won a new car! The puzzle clearly said PERSON. And Julian guessed....."C"? Seriously?

We need to seriously reconsider our college standards.

I guess i’ll be the first to say if they taught real education in school rather diversity and tolerance, he would have known.

Cut the guy some slack.

I watch WOF because my mother likes to. I can almost never solve one of the puzzles.

I can’t get off on the fact he blew it. Could’ve been very likely me.

YES! THREE Epic fails. This guy is an absolute moron. And what chances he had to walk away with $1 million AND a new car.

WoF was clearly racist by not accepting the black “English” pronunciation. /s

“I can’t get off on the fact he blew it. Could’ve been very likely me.”

here in Hollywood, there’s a test (yes, a damn test) to find out if you are “eligible” for WOF. Test in pc terms means, personality, if you look good on TV + intelligence etc. And believe me, there are more morons who cannot pass the intelligence test. If you even tried the jeopardy test which takes 5 levels and say that, I won’t rile on you as there are more broken egos leaving for the broken lot.(I used to intern for the Price is Right with Carey)

Pat Sajak tried to console him the first time. But not after that. WTF was he going for? ‘World’s Fastest CAT”? Could not have been “Car” since the “R” was already used. Just utterly incomprehensible.

I’m going on the limb for this, yet I think ol’ Julian is attending college, under the Shiela Jackson Lee degree program.

Watch the corrupt regime (obama and holder) use the full power of their administration to attack Pat Sajack, a Conservative. A trip to a multicultural indoctrination center is likely planned for the entire Wheel of Fortune staff.

This video clip is yet another exhibit proving that diversity is perversity.

His flub in solving the puzzle that would have given him a new auto was a groaner. The kicker was that despite his two boners, he bested by quite a lot the other two contestants.

This guy is an absolute moron.

I believe I could definitely agree with that. If he is not embarrassed, he should be.

I doubt it, he probably passed all of the self-esteem courses with flying colors. And, if you really want to be disgusted at how far things have fallen in obama/holder's America, take a look at this: IU: Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs.

Stage fright is probably the main factor. He was probably much better in the audition.

Public speaking/appearance causes some people to lose 50 IQ points.

Yep——just bring back the Classical Education-—the pre-Dewey curricula which included the Bible, and we would be pumping out geniuses with Virtue in 5 years. People like Ben Franklin only went to “school” for two years. Lincoln, a few months.

It was the beginning of the end of America, when we decided to condition children in “education” institutions out of the family-—instead of in the Real World (experiences) which teaches Common Sense and autonomy....(individualism), not “group think”.

Book Learning comes from within the person, only.....and that desire “to Know” is killed with Common Core and ‘informational texts” instead of the greatest books in the Western Canon. Kids learn from T. Morrison’s instead of Mark Twain or Dickens——how fathers rape their daughters and get them pregnant.

The Leftists are destroying innocence and the Mystery, and Awe and Wonder of childhood and sexualizing children (Pride in sodomy)....to destroy Reason, Virtue and Love (Christian Ethics).

In first seeing the phrase I’m not sure I would have remembered it was a Person, and that the R was taken. I thought car as well in the rush to answer it. (Did he have to rush?).

I thought the Achilles and “dice spin” thing were pretty stupid though.

WOF used to play the same show back to back but on two different channels. I loved fooling people in our house that did not know I had just watched the show.

But like you I would do terrible on that show. I can never guess the answers.

I don't think the guy is that stupid...he ended up beating the other two contestants to go to the championship round. But yeah, those flubs must have been pretty embarrassing.

On another note, at a work-related conference some years ago, I met a woman who had appeared on The Price Is Right and actually won a car. She said she was so nervous she could hardly think or talk. She remembered people from the audience shouting prices at her, so she picked one, and that was the correct one.

Not defending the stupidity, but I don’t think English is his first/native language. He looked like a “skinny”.
