Military Contestant On ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Gets Scrooged (VIDEO)

Video

Military Contestant on Wheel of Fortune

Many "Wheel of Fortune" fans are in a tizzy over the apparent Scrooging of a military contestant by some hardhearted judges. In an episode that aired this week, Navy Intel Specialist Renee Durette appeared to answer a puzzle correctly, but was buzzed by the judges, who didn't think she spoke clearly enough.

The internets are going wild, with Gawker calling host Pat Sajak a "pronunciation Nazi" and The Blaze writing that Durette was "denied the win on a technicality." Even the usually tame TV Guide announced that Durette was "royally screwed."

Watch the video above, and decide for yourself. Should the judges (and Pat) have given Renee a break?
