If another contestant rings in early, maybe a different but reasonable guess. HOMEMADE MUFFINS at best since it's the answer. ** '''Instead''': "STARS IN THE RIGHT WAY".The yellow contestant rings in before any more letters are revealed and also says HOMEMADE WAFFLES, to which Pat responds with "''Still'' not that." The blue contestant then solves for $1,000.

Idiotic answers aren't all that rare on game shows. ''WheelOfFortune'' has aired five days a week since January 6, 1975 (as two different versions from 1983-91 and 1997-98), so it has amassed quite a few. When you're on, you may have a lot of money on the line already, and you may also feel destined to make it to the end for the grand prize. An incomplete puzzle stands in your way, or you rely on a lucky spin of the Wheel itself...possibly both. Somebody is bound to reach their limit and wind up right here.

** Especially if you've hit the "Express" space in Round 3 and are going for $1,000 a pop. Any mistake counts as a Bankrupt then.

* RSTLNE has been given for free in the Bonus around since 1988. While it isn't uncommon for some contestants to accidentally call one of those letters (in which case the host ignores the letter and asks them to pick another one instead), this didn't stop one contestant on February 18, 2004 from trying to call '''four''' of them, each time being told that they're "part of the original package". Even worse, one of the letters in the original package she picked was ''[[FacePalm already in the answer.]]''

** Also on the Finnish version, a contestant fills in the puzzle PANDAT ASUVAT KIINASSA ("Pandas live in China") all by himself. However, he mispronounces the third word as KILMASSA (thus making the puzzle "Pandas live in heat"), losing a substantial amount of points. The next contestant solves for zero points.

* Similarly, if the contestant has a huge lead in the Express Round, possesses any of the items listed above and calls a correct letter on the Express Wedge... ** '''You'd Expect''': If the contestant doesn't know the puzzle to forget about hopping aboard since calling a wrong letter acts as a Bankrupt. It's not worth the gamble, ''especially'' considering the Prize Puzzle is at stake in this round. ** '''Instead''': A contestant on December 21, 2015 hops aboard with both Car tags and proceeds to wipe out on his next letter call, losing his Car.
