Wheel of Fortune viewers were not watching the best contestants Tuesday night after a bizarre and frustrating fail by every contestant on the panel. As the wheel spun around and around, two of the three contestants couldn't get a very common phrase correct, while the third contestant who finally got it struggled to land on a spot that didn't bankrupt him. Incredibly, even though Wheel of Fortune is taped months in advance, the show's producers let the entire fiasco play out unedited.
The bizarre situation started when the board read "Another feather _n yo_r _a_." Contestant Laura took the first stab at solving the puzzle, but she guessed "Another feather in your hat." That was the first incorrect response. Then, contestant Christopher called the letter "g." There was no "g" of course, so Christopher didn't get a shot at solving the puzzle.
Contestant Thomas' turn was up next, but he landed on a bankrupt spot, so he couldn't guess at all. On Laura's second turn, she guessed "Another feather in your lap." This was also wrong. "Oh, the feather is moving around," host Pat Sajak said.

I'd like to solve... ANOTHER FEATHER IN EVERYTHING BUT YOUR CAP.March 2, 2022
On Christopher's next chance, he guessed "d." Again, there was no "d." Thomas spun again, but this time he got "Lose a Turn." This meant Laura got a third opportunity. This time, she spun the wheel and asked for a "p." There was a "p"! Suddenly, it seemed like we were getting somewhere. Unfortunately, Laura guessed "Another feather in your map." That was not correct.prevnext
'They should've ended the game'
They should’ve ended the game at that point— Daron Fleming (@Daron_Fleming) March 2, 2022
Christopher spun again, but he got the bankrupt spot, so he couldn't guess. Thomas decided to spin instead of solve and landed on the $500 spot. He called the letter "c." At this point, the warning that time was almost up on the show chimed! Thomas guessed the phrase, "Another feather in your cap." This was thankfully correct.prevnext
