Host Pat Sajak nearly couldn’t believe this contestant.
On a recent episode of long-running game show “Wheel of Fortune,” player Kate, from Cincinnati, had 10 seconds to solve a puzzle for the phrase “Fixing a leak,” but she just couldn’t get there.
Her guesses included “moving a leaf” and “raking a leaf.”
As time expired Sajak let he know that “‘Leaf’ was not the word.”
The puzzle was then revealed on the big board as “Fixing a leak.” Kate, from Cincinnati, then said,"I kept thinking of doing something else with a leak and I didn’t think that was it.”
Sajak then looked right into the camera and uttered, “no.”
The studio audience had a good laugh and Sajak even dropped the game cards in his hands as Kate covered her face in embarrassment.
“Excuse me. These get heavy sometimes,” Sajak jokingly said as he picked up the fallen cards.
Kate did not win that bonus round.
