A recent contestant on “Wheel of Fortune” is getting a lot of attention on the internet after she was denied her winnings because of the way she pronounced a word.
Renee Durette was up $3,850 for the puzzle, “Seven Swans A Swimming,” according to ABC News.
When she said she’d like to solve the puzzle and read the phrase, the show said they couldn’t accept the answer.
It’s because she dropped the “g” in “swimming”.
Many viewers tweeted about how Durette was robbed.
ABC News reported that Durette, who is a Navy Intel Specialist from Florida, said she had a great time regardless.
