A ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Contestant Needed One Letter To Solve The Puzzle And What Happened Next Has Everyone Talking
A “Wheel of Fortune” contestant named Kevin needed just one letter to solve the puzzle and win the prize Tuesday. Unfortunately for him, he called out the wrong letter.
The board read, “A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE.” The answer, of course, is “A Streetcar Named Desire,” Tennessee Williams’ famous play. (RELATED: ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Contestant Makes Incredible Guess)

After Kevin gave the wrong answer, the next contestant, Lisa, spun the wheel and called out the correct response.
The host Pat Sajak tried to make things better for Kevin, when he said to Lisa, “And although you got the right answer, I’d rather see Kevin’s play.”
