He’s probably not going to live this one down anytime soon.
Wheel of Fortune contestant Julian Batts, who was participating in the game show’s College Week last Friday, lost out on a chance to play for $1 million. He managed to choose every single correct letter in the puzzle, and after the letters were all revealed, he still lost because he failed to correctly pronounce all the words on the board, reports E!
The correct answer was “Mythological Hero Achilles,” but the Indiana University freshman incorrectly pronounced “Achilles” as “A-chill-us.”
Lucky for the contestant after him, who was given the chance to solve the puzzle and correctly pronounced the answer.
