One Wheel of Fortune contestant rather upset the internet on Wednesday when she made a seemingly unnecessary purchase while attempting to solve a puzzle on the game show.
A contestant named Lisa had “Pepper_ni Pineapple Pi__a” on the board, following a spin where she correctly guessed the letter "R." She then purchased the vowel "O," spending $250 before immediately solving the puzzle.
Naturally, Twitter was a bit confused by Lisa's decision, with many noting that the puzzle was easily solvable before Lisa wasted her money buying a vowel.
This lady just had to buy a vowel to complete the word pepperoni. The puzzle was "pepperoni pineapple pizza" and literally the only letters empty were o and z. And she bought a damned vowel before solving.— Forbes Quadrangle (@ForbesQuad) December 28, 2017
The word was pepperoni and you had every letter but the O and you BOUGHT the vowel ... get out of here #WheelOfFortune give me that 1/2 of car— ❄️Megan ☃️🎄🍪⛸ (@Meikann_) December 28, 2017
In the end, Lisa scored the win after a series of bankruptcies for the other contestants. She even won a car, so it's safe to say she's doing just fine.
See her puzzle in the clip above.
