Wheel of Fortune has become one of the last appointment television shows that America blocks out time for, and the pandemic only seems to have made it more popular. With more viewers come more eyes to catch mistakes, and that's exactly what happened on Thursday's episode.

In the final puzzle, the contestant had to guess the letters 'A, P, G, H,' and with the always give 'R, S, T, L, N, E,' the contestant had a decent amount of the puzzle filled in.

With the board displaying ' _ _ _ T E    _R A N_L_,' Pat turned to the contestant and said, “Well, I’d rather be standing here than there, quite frankly," accidentally giving away the answer to the puzzle.

At the end of the show, Vanna White asked him about the situation. "Did you hear what you said?”

“I wonder how many people at home caught it, but in setting up the thing there weren’t that many letters up there … it goes to show you that people are concentrating and they’re not paying any attention to me. And he didn’t get it," Pat replied.

While the contestant didn't catch the clue, it definitely would be interesting to see what they would do had he gotten it correct?
