'Wheel of Fortune' fans rip game show puzzle after another contestant 'robbed' of big prize

Another one bites the dust.

“Wheel of Fortune” fans slammed the game show after an unlucky contestant didn’t solve a bonus puzzle correctly. 

During a bonus round this week, “Wheel of Fortune” player Cesar took a stab at the challenging puzzle.

For the category, “Phrase,” Cesar chose four additional letters “HGMA” and was left with the puzzle: “THAT _AS A _ _ _ _ TAL _A_T_R.”

“Wheel of Fortune” co-host Vanna White revealed the letters on the puzzle board read, “THAT WAS A PIVOTAL FACTOR.”

The audience was heard saying “aww” in the background. 

Sajak then opened the envelope to the grand bonus prize of a hefty $100,000 that Cesar could’ve walked away with. 

Another comment read, “’ That was a pivotal factor’ no one says that…”

“Yeah, I’m always going around saying ‘That was a pivotal factor!’ It’s so common!!! How could he not get that?! What the hell is wrong with Wheel of Fortune?” one fan strongly expressed on social media.

Last month, a contestant failed to solve a puzzle with the category, “What are you doing?”

After the player’s many failed attempts, the answer to the puzzle was “Joining the fray.” 

Fans, yet again, strongly disagreed with the puzzle that was given to the “Wheel of Fortune” contestant. 

Sajak, who has hosted since 1981, occasionally gets flak from fans on social media over his rulings.
