It pays to know how to pronounce words correctly…like one million dollars.
Poor Julian Batts. He is an IU honors student who might go down as one of the worst Wheel of Fortune contestants in history! He appeared this past Friday as part of Wheel of Fortune’s ‘College Week.’ He made several blunders, including one where every single letter was up on the board. The puzzle was “Mythological Hero Achilles.” Everybody knows how to say, ‘Achilles,’ right? Julian mispronounced the word and it cost him a chance at $1,000,000! See what word he spoke instead and the other blunders that have now labeled him on the internet as one of the worst Wheel of Fortune contestants of all time! He also blew a chance at a car!
