WHEEL Of Fortune fans were completely shocked when a contestant got a clear answer wrong and it cost them up to $10,000.
Contestant Tenaya competed in the second round and did well, including receiving a $10,000 bonus, when things went awry.
She has nearly all the letters, including the vowels, for the ‘showbiz’ clue and is left with the tile “_urassic Park _o_ies.”
Host Pat Sajak urged her to guess, and Teyana sounded hesitant to ask: “Jurassic Park objects?”
In fact, the correct answer is Jurrasic Park Movies, which refers to the massive dinosaur-themed series started by Steven Spielberg in 1993.
Viewers at home couldn’t believe Teyana gave such a clear wrong answer, calling it the “worst mistake” in the game show’s history.
“Jurassic Park” Bodies “! ?? I can’t root for everyone anymore,” one angry fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added: “‘Jurassic park corpses’ – even Sajak couldn’t help but laugh.”

And a third wrote: “Oh my god! Did she really just say JURASSIC PARK BODY?”
Teyana may have missed the bonus puzzle and the $10,000, but she still went home with a lot of money.
“It will be fine,” host Pat told her. “
It’s really nice to have you here. I hope you had a good time, because I did. $4,500 for that round. You won $5,500”.
As if Teyana’s mistake went unnoticed, the official Jurassic Park Twitter account stepped in.
It shared a video of the shivering moment with the caption, “Ho__ on__ y_ur b___s.”
That, of course, has to do with Samuel L Jackson’s character Ray Arnold in the original 1993 film.
“Hold your butt,” said the actor, delivering one of the most iconic lines in the franchise.
