** One couple in April 2017 used the card on only $600, but the bonus cash proved worthless since they then solved and ended up below the couple house minimum of $2,000, wasting the card. They also went on to the bonus round where the Wild Card could have been much more useful.

Idiotic answers aren't all that rare on game shows. ''Series/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.

** '''Instead''': She stops speaking upon hearing the buzzer. Pat makes an expression as if to say "You completely blew it" as the team whines "But...but...". The blue team calls the M's and solves.
** '''What Makes It Worse''': Before this round, the final totals were $6,000/$17,150/$2,000. The yellow team was still well-ahead and the blue team was dead last...until they solve for $18,000 after the above blunder, overtaking the yellow team by less than $3,000.

** '''Instead''': One contestant guesses AVALAND, and another guesses ARCHLAND after calling the C. Eventually, the K is in place, but the same contestant says ACKLAND. Next contestant calls the U (again, vowels are free in Speed-Up)...and says the right answer with about zero confidence. He then says that he's ''never heard of'' Auckland.
