people in different regions speak different.
most people don't speak perfect english.
it's not a game to see who speaks the best English. its a dumb game where you guess the word, she did guess the correct word. its not called "wheel of pronunciation".
more importantly, why doesn't vanna show her tatas
this, we've waited long enough, altho i do remember those sweet playboy pics many years ago
I've seen shit like this happen on JEOPARDY. But that's fine, that's a show for smart people.
WHEEL OF FORTUNE is for morons. Should have given it to her.
The goal is to figure out the answer. She figured out the answer. She should have won
I think this video directly addresses the OP's dilemma. Wheel of Fortune apparently attracts people who are barely lingual...
In this case, Pat should've let the guys slide pronouncing "Ripa" as Rye-pa or Ree-pa. They're still reading and pronouncing the "i". The woman, on the other hand, read the 'g' in the puzzle and didn't pronounce it; the 'g' in 'swimming' is not silent. I don't know why they're making such a big deal over this (this actually made the evening news!)--it's not the first time this has happened. Everyone who goes on 'Wheel of Fortune' knows you have to enunciate as if you're back in second grade reciting 'Janet and Mark' in the reading circle.
