Wheel of Fortune Fail: The Most Shocking of All-Time?

by at .

We've documented our share of Wheel of Fortune fails over the years.

Remember the time Pat Sajak actually walked off the set because contestants kept talking about horses for some reason?

Or the time a contestant blew a very easy chance at $1 million?

These were both memorable moments, but they pale in comparison to what just transpired on the show for a man named Kevin.

Clearly not a fan of Tennessee Williams (or logic), Kevin was faced with the following puzzle after correctly asking for the letter "C" to be placed on the board:

When he chose to spin the wheel, despite missing just one letter from the answer, Sajak and viewers assumed that Kevin was simply a risk-taker who wanted to increase his pot.

But... nope.

He was just a guy who apparently had never heard of the play "A Streetcar Named Desire."

So he went ahead and guessed the letter "K." Which would have made the final answer "A Streetcar Naked Desire."

After his monumental failure, fellow competitor Lisa swooped in for the victory.

And Twitter was left to react in shock, anger, confusion and humor to what it had witnessed.

"I'm gonna go lie down," wrote one user very simply after explaining what happened on the game show.

Another invoked Joey from Friends:

And another sympathized with poor Kevin:

Was this the greatest mistake in the long-running history of game shows?

It has to be up there, right?
