Is this the weirdest moment in Wheel of Fortune history?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 5th 2010 12:45PM
Wheel of Fortune has been on over a quarter of a century, so there have been a lot of mess-ups and weird moments on the show. But there are few as weird as last night, when none of the contestants could get "Regis Philbin & Kelly Ripa," even AFTER the entire puzzle had been revealed!

If these servicemen have such important things to do and never watch TV, why the fuck are they on a game show trying to win money?

Weber....is it webber (like spider web) or weeber? Both pronunciations are used. If someone has never seen the show (Live with Regis & Kelly) how would they know how to pronounce their last names? The guy not winning because of pronunciation is stupid....

All this clip shows is 3 servicemen that actually do something with themselves, unlike the heffer who filmed this clip sitting on her fat ass laughing at the people who protect her freedom.

Once the entire puzzle has been revealed, and all the letters are up on the board, the puzzle is solved. Since the puzzle was completely solved I don't care how someone pronounces someone's last name or a particular word because those names and words are revealed already (due to the puzzle being solved). I think it's ridiculous that the producers of the show are that nasty and greedy that they would make such "rules" about pronunciation. The producers have one goal in mind - to make as much money as possible - so if they can use petty "rules" to disqualify you because you've never heard of Kelly Ripa then that's exactly what they will do. It's ridiculous.

If the puzzle were not solved, and if all the letters were not revealed on the board, I would agree with the producers. But when the entire puzzle is solved and they're so petty that they deny the person the prize money I think the producers are just unfair and ugly as can be. This is just evidence that the producers don't want the contestants to win, they want to make money and keep all the money for themselves.

THESE MEN ARE SERVING OUR COUNTRY THEY DON'T HAVE TIME WATCHING GAME SHOWS LIKE ALL YOU OTHER LARDIES. BESIDES, A COUPLE OF THEM SAID THE WRONG NAME THE OTHER MISPRONOUNCED RIPA. IT IS LIKE USING WORDS THAT MEAN THE SAME BUT PRONOUNCED DIFFERENTLY. LIKE THE WORD AUNT SOME PEOPLE PRONOUNCE IT LIKE IT IS SPELLED OTHERS PRONOUNCE IT LIKE THE INSECT ANT. BOTH CATEGORIES OF PRONOUNCERS STILL GET CREDIT FOR THE WORD. THE OFFICER THAT MISPRONOUNCED RIPA SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN CREDIT FOR IT. PEOPLES NAMES ARE CONSTANTLY MISPRONOUNCED. MY NAME IS 90% OF THE TIME MISPRONOUNCED SO ARE MANY FOREIGN NAMES. GIVE THE GUY A PRONUNCIATION BREAK

What I find amusing is all the people who are condemning and judging those who watch tv, yet they're expending time and energy commenting on a board called "TV Squad," explicitly devoted to, um, television. Hmmmm... me thinks ye doth protesteth too much.

Actually, to pronounce Kelly Ripa correctly with a short 'i' it really should be spelled Rippa.

He pronounced it correct with the long 'i' as in 'ripe' based on her spelling. So in actuality, he pronounced it correctly. She just pronounces it incorrectly from a grammatical standpoint.

Just sayin'.
