A contestant on “Wheel of Fortune” on Tuesday missed the show’s answer to a putt. A player identified as “Kevin” was one letter away from solving the puzzle. It read, “A Streetcar Na-ed Desire.” Kevin decided to spin the wheel again and landed on the $600 piece. He said, “K.”
“A Streetcar Naked Desire.” He was wrong and the crowd let out a collective sigh. His opponent to his left correctly solved the puzzle, “A Streetcar Named Desire.”
“A Streetcar Named Desire” is the name of the famous play written by American playwright Tennessee Williams. Pat Sajak, the show’s host, was a good sport about the mistake.
“Although you got the right answer,” he told the contestant, “I’d rather see Kevin’s play. But that’s just me.”
