My chances of being a game show winner are looking better and better

Confession: Coach and I DVR Wheel of Fortune everyday.

We love compeating with each other to solve the puzzles, but more importantly we like to make fun of the contestants.

Yesterday was one of the most hilarious shows I've ever seen, thanks to Marissa from Tennessee.

The first puzzle is from the category Fun and Games, and it goes like this:

I _
_ _ _

She is the first to buzz in, and says "A Hole in Wall!!"

Umm, no. That doesn't even make sense, not to mention there are only three letters in the last word. So, the next contestant quickly buzzes in and correctly answers "A hole in one".

2 Puzzles later in the Phrase category:

_ _
AN _
_ _

Girlfriend buzzes in and exclaims "A pinch of this, and a wash of that!"

Ryan and I die laughing!! Is she serious? Did she really think that was the phrase? Once again, the contestent next to her correctly answers "A pinch of this and a dash of that". For the rest of the game, Marissa landed on bankrupts and Lose a turn, which must have been salt in the wound for someone who didn't capitalize on two solved puzzles!!

Sometimes I wonder how Pat Sajak keeps from rolling his eyes with some of these contestants.

If you are really bored, I actually found the clip on You Tube. The video is aptly titled "Double Suicide"...

Absolutely hilarious!!! Gerod and I are also avid Wheel Watchers and sometimes I agree that the contestants must be pretty stupid. :) This made my day... thanks for the laugh!

See I'd be like that woman! My cousin on the other hand wouldprobably be the biggest winner ever ... if she could just avoid those bankrupts. lol

My hubby and I watch Wheel of Fortune at least 2-3 times a week. I'm awesome at it. But if I were on the show, I'd probably get nervous and say "A Hole in the Wall!!!"
