It should have been so easy and one letter “M” is all it took.
But for one “Wheel of Fortune” contestant, the pressure was apparently too much.
The man had “A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE” as the puzzle. However, he didn’t opt to figure out the puzzle and chose “K” instead of “M” to get “A Streetcar Named Desire,” the Tennessee Williams play and Marlon Brando-starring movie.
A number of people, when the contestant identified only has “Kevin,” were stunned and frustrated by his failed attempt.

Dude on Wheel of Fortune had to solve this:
A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE
He asked for a K.
I’m gonna go lie down.

Nothing’s funnier to me than Wheel of Fortune fails. Unlike Jeopardy it’s literally spelled out for you https://t.co/e2rVTzsGTO
