‘Wheel of Fortune’ Contestant Makes Epic Flub, Loses Out on Nearly $30,000 in Cash and Prizes

With nearly $19,000 in potential earnings in the round on the Jan. 27 episode of “Wheel of Fortune,” all the contestant named Samantha had to do was read off the board with nearly the entire puzzle revealed.

Unfortunately for Samantha, it was an epic flub.

And to add figurative salt into the proverbial wound, whoever solved the puzzle correctly earned a secret bonus prize: a trip to the Canadian Rockies, which was worth almost $11,000.
