The fan-favorite game show, Wheel of Fortune, originally began on NBC as a day time series, which debuted in 1975. 6 years later, in 1981, current host Pat Sajak stepped in alongside Vanna White to replace former host Chuck Woolery alongside Susan Stafford.

Sajek and Vanna have been hosting the show together for 39 years as millions of contestants have come on to try and solve enough word puzzles to get to the bonus round and spin the wheel.

On March 1’s episode, Wheel of Fortune contestants filled in a majority of one puzzle, resulting in the board reading “Another feather _n yo_r _a_.” The wheel wasn’t kind to some of them as they spun “lose a turn” or “bankrupt”, but others were trying to solve the puzzle by guessing “Another feather in your lap” and “Another feather in your map”.

This went on for approximately two minutes before one of the contestants finally solved the puzzle, which was “Another feather in your cap”.

Now, another puzzle is going viral for stumping contestants and, once again, frustrating fans.

The puzzle mishap was shared in a video to TikTok. The category was “What are you doing” and the video begins with the puzzle already reading “R_n_ing a p_da_ b_a_.”

The first contestant heard in the video then calls for an “o”, which resulted in the puzzle reading “R_n_ing a p_da_ boa_.” She then asked to solve the puzzle and guessed “Renting a paddle boat”, which clearly does not fit.

The second contestant guessed a “t”, which resulted in the puzzle reading “R_nting a p_da_ boat.” He then proceeded to buy an “e”, so the puzzle was filled in to read “Renting a peda_ boat.” He then asks to solve the puzzle, guessing the same exact thing as the first contestant, “Renting a paddle boat”, despite having more letters filled in and despite that answer already being guessed.

The third contestant, instead of solving the puzzle, opted to spin the wheel. Then, instead of guessing an “l”, which would make the most sense, the contestant guessed an “m”, meaning she thought the puzzle read “Renting a pedam boat.”

Now, back to the first contestant who guessed “Renting a paddle boat”, she spins the wheel and guesses a “w”, meaning she thought the puzzle read “Renting a pedaw boat.”

Finally, the second contestant solves the puzzle, reading “Renting a pedal boat” aloud.
