massive goof on Wheel of Fortune.
Hapless contestant Samantha Philio from the Seattle area did a fine job of cracking the puzzle in the picture. She then read the obvious solution as "ice fields, water, glaciers." Of course, she was dinged for not reading "falls." The mistake cost her twenty-nine grand, and she finished the show with only $2,000. This has set off much FAIL mirth on the Interwebs.
the puzzle omitted the expected "and" between "waterfalls" and "glaciers." This may well have tripped up Samantha when she tried to read the board.
I try not to join in the derisive laughter when things like this happen on game shows. I know only too well that I would be a hopeless wreck under the lights when serious money was at stake. But this screwup was painful...and, I hate to admit, funny.
