‘Wheel of Fortune’ Contestant’s Disastrously Incorrect Answer Had Fans Cracking Up
We love watching game shows for a couple reasons but mainly because it’s fun to play along. We love to see if we can guess the right answer before the contestants.
Sometimes we’re very impressed with the contestants on game shows and know that we definitely could not have done better. For example, on the game show “Wheel of Fortune” there are many times contestants have guessed correctly with minimal letters of the board.
Not everyone is good at solving every puzzle, and sometimes contestants on game shows give answers that are very, very wrong, so wrong that almost everyone watching at home knows the answer.
On a recent episode of “Wheel of Fortune,” it was a contestant named Shafi’s turn to try to solve the puzzle. The category for the puzzle was “Song Lyrics,” and almost all of the letters for the puzzle were on the board. There were only three letters that had not been filled in.
The puzzle read “THI_ _AND _HAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME.” Shafi answered, “This band has made for you and me.”
The next contestant answered the puzzle correctly, “This land was made for you and me.”
It had to have been a major face palm moment for Shafi, whose answer to the puzzle was so wrong that it left many people on Twitter making fun of his wrong answer.

One Twitter user even suggested that perhaps there should be a “test” that contestants take before they’re allowed on the show.
Watching Wheel of Fortune and for this puzzle:This _and _as made for you and meThe dude solves with “this band has made for you and me.”I… We may need to implement some sort of test for contestants hereafter.

Another Twitter user pointed out that even though Shafi’s answer was wrong, he probably didn’t feel too bad about his mistake in the end.
I guess the joke’s on us because “this band has made for you and me” Shafi is going to the final round. #wheeloffortune

In the end, Shafi got the last laugh because he went on to win the bonus round and walked away with $71,150.
