It’s one of those TV moments when you turn up the volume to make sure you heard something right.
That happened on the CBS game show 'Wheel of Fortune' that aired Monday night.
With the phrase fully spelled out on the board, Jonny Knowles said “Flamingo Dance Lessons,” instead of “Flamenco Dance Lessons.”
That hard ‘G’ sound cost him the $7,000 and a trip to Spain, where the folkloric dance originated.
The internet was quick to notice Knowles’ fumble.
"Wheel of Fortune," "Flamenco," "Contestant" and "Pat Sajak," were among the top 10 searches on Google Trends Tuesday morning.
Pat Sajak, one of the show’s hosts, allows Ashley, the contestant to Knowles’ left, to say the phrase, which she pronounces correctly and consequently wins $1,000 and the trip to Spain.
“To explain what we all heard was—and I know you didn’t mean to say it, but you gave us a 'G' instead of a 'C',” Sajak, says before the show cut to the commercial break.
“It was unintentional but you kind of have to go by the rules,” Sajak later says on the show.
