Julian, a Wheel of Fortune Contestant, may be the worst Wheel of Fortune winner ever.
The Indiana University student, a Hudson and Holland Scholar, a Herbert Presidential Scholar and a Hutton Honors College student from Indianapolis, appeared on Friday’s show as part of “College Week.”
However, Julian apparently let his nerves get the best of him. On three separate occasions, he was moments away from solving the puzzle but failed to correctly pronounce or guess the puzzle.
Despite his difficulties, Julian still won! He won $11,700 and advanced to the final round.
“I don’t think anyone has ever taken a more circuitous route to victory,” host Pat Sajack said.
