‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant loses big over the silliest mistake

Wheel of Fortune contestant Kristen Shaw lost a lot of money on a minor mistake Thursday night. Turns out the rules for the occasional “crossword puzzle” challenge are rather particular. In order to solve a “crossword puzzle” a must list the words that appear in the puzzle. In this case there were four words, “right,” “football, “left” and “Sally.” Unfortunately Shaw said, “Right, football, left and Sally.” Since she included the conjunction “and” she lost. Host Pat Sajak felt bad for Shaw, especially because he tried to warn her right before she answered Sajak said, “Most times I caution people not to add anything, and you maybe didn't even hear yourself say it but you threw an "And" in there with the last thing and we have to go by the rules.” Fans also felt bad for Shaw. In fact many took to Twitter to call for rule changes and express their disbelief. While it was certainly a disappointing turn of events for Shaw, she still went home with $3,000 AND a smile.
