Q? What? “Wheel Of Fortune” Unusual Letter Choice Misses Out On Costa Rica Trip

She said Q.

Yahoo! Entertainment – It is “Girlfriend Getaways” week on Wheel of Fortune. And during Thursday evening’s game fans were treated to a rare sight, one of the contestants guessed “Q.”

Best friends Marleta Robinson and Nancy Krol were looking forward to going on a trip together, compliments of the game show. And things looked pretty promising, right up until Robinson guessed one of the rarest letters ever picked on the show the letter Q.

Not only is it rare for a contestant to guess Q, in this case there wasn’t really anywhere for it to go. The clue was “Living Thing,” and the existing puzzle was “E _ _TIC – AND – C _ L _ R _ _ L – BIRDS.” Since almost all English common words with Q’s in them also require U’s, the only available spaces were “EQUTIC” and “C _ L _ RQUL.” Neither of which are words.

The correct answer was “EXOTIC AND COLORFUL BIRDS.” The prize ended up being an US$11,772 trip to Costa Rica. To make matters worse, because they missed out on winning that round, they missed out on advancing to the bonus round.

The pair did go home with US$7,300, so it wasn’t a complete loss. Hopefully, neither of them visit Twitter either because the fans on there were blown away by “Q”uestionable letter choice.
