Third time’s…. not the charm. 

Tuesday’s episode of Wheel of Fortune was brutal for all three contestants, but it was particularly hard on Laura. 

The category was phrase. 

The puzzle read “A_other feather _n y__r _a_.”

Laura made two three guesses: “Another feather in your hat,” followed by “another feather in your lap,” followed by “another feather in your map.”

Unfortunately, all three of them were wrong.

The wheel was rather unkind to the other two contestants as they kept hitting “bankrupt” and “lose a turn.”

After roughly 6 failed attempts, Thomas finally guessed the letter “c,” which revealed that the puzzle was “Another feather in your cap.”

You can watch the brutal video below: 

Naturally, Twitter was up in arms over the disastrous situation. 

One fan noted that they are in “utter disbelief.”

Another noted: “What a tremendous disappointment these players have been. They don’t get another feather in their laps, maps or hats!”

Another fan couldn’t get over the fact that she got it wrong “three times.”

Someone else called it the “greatest moment in TV history.”

One Twitter user said the “whole world was” yelling the correct answer at their screen.

It was even worse when you realized that the “h and t were used.”

But that wasn’t the only viral moment of the night. 

In another puzzle, Thomas guessed that the phrase was “Barking Hotdogs,” which set Twitter off completely.

Better luck next time. And just know that if you decide to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune, there’s a high probability that you will trend on Twitter.

Pat Sajak Kicks Off Final Run on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Season 41

Pat Sajak

The beginning of the end is officially upon us! 

Wheel of Fortune Season 41 was set to kick off today, September 11, 2023, with a momentous premiere marking Pat Sajak’s final spin with the game show. Unfortunately, due to the Monday Night’s NFL Kickoff, the episode will not be airing in its regularly scheduled slot of 6:30 p.m. CT in some markets. Instead, episode 401 was preempted and scheduled on the lineup to air at 3:07 a.m. CT, while the second episode of the season, is set to air normally on September 12th at 6:30 p.m. CT.

The article has been updated to reflect this schedule change. 

The longtime host announced his departure this summer. He has helmed the game show for 40 years alongside Vanna White, who is also set to return for the 41st season, though she will be away for a week as she came down with COVID-19 while filming, forcing her to miss a handful of episodes. 

Still, it’s going to be a season to remember as things will never be the same again once Ryan Seacrest takes over, replacing Sajak in 2024. Sajak first joined in 1981, filling the spot previously held by Chuck Woolery and making the game show an American staple. 

However, Sajak was ready to close this chapter of his life, previously declaring, “Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months.”

Fans aren’t looking forward to the change, with many commenting that it’s the “last” season they will watch on the WOF Instagram and Twitter posts promoting the premiere. 

Wheel of Fortune Season 41 will kick off with the theme “European Vacation,” airing episodes every night of the week at 6:30 pm CT on ABC.

It’s unclear if White, who hasn’t gotten a raise in 18 years, will continue on with the show once Seacrest takes over, but since she’s so iconic and integral to the show’s success, we hope that she gets what she deserves! 

And we hope everyone enjoys the final season with the iconic duo of Sajak and White!

When Is Pat Sajak Leaving 'Wheel of Fortune'?

The end is near for Pat Sajak… well, almost. 

On June 12, Sajak announced his retirement from the long-running game show—which he’s helmed for 40 years—writing, “Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months.”

The news shook fans, though it wasn’t entirely unexpected as he’s previously spoken out about a natural order of things, noting that everything must come to an end. 

Since then, Wheel of Fortune has announced a replacement with American Idol host and former Live with Kelly and Ryan host Ryan Seacrest taking the reins

Thankfully, fans will have ample time to get adjusted as the change won’t happen until Wheel of Fortune Season 42, which is set to air in 2024. 

Sajak will stick around through the 41st season expected to air later this year in the fall. The new season is set to premiere on September 11, 2023.

America’s beloved game show wrapped up its 40th season on June 9, 2023—and Sajak has been having tons of fun with it. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for his final hurrah as we have no doubt the brains behind the scenes will make it special for Sajak and the loyal fans at home. 

As for everyone wondering about Vanna White’s future, the immediate info is that she plans to stick around

Is Vanna White Leaving Wheel of Fortune?

With Pat Sajak’s retirement announcement and the news that Ryan Seacrest is replacing him as a host starting with season 42, it’s understandable that fans are worried about Vanna White’s place on Wheel of Fortune

Is her job secure? She’s only been the face of the brand alongside Sajak for 40 years!

Puck News reported last week that contract negotiations were in the works, with the latest update that White will be sticking around the game show. 

The outlet revealed that she is “eyeing” a future with WOF beyond its 41st season, which will be Sajak’s final installment. 

While a deal has not been reached yet, according to the outlet, she is allegedly asking for a pay raise as she’s never gotten one in 18 years. 

Seacrest addressed his takeover of the game show shortly after the official WOF social media account named him as Sajak’s replacement, and he seemed keen on working alongside White, who fans know and love for being a welcoming presence and for her elaborate and incredible fashion pieces. 

“I can’t wait to continue the tradition of spinning the wheel and working alongside the great Vanna White,” the American Idol host said in his statement while acknowledging that it’s “been a privilege and pure joy to watch Pat and Vanna on our television screens for an unprecedented 40 years, making us smile every night and feel right at home with them.”

White has yet to speak out on all the changes happening behind the scenes of America’s game show, but it’s comforting to know that she plans to stick around for the time being and that fans won’t have to lose both Sajak and White simultaneously.
