Wheel of Fortune fans dub contestant's 'horribly wrong' answer that cost them $10k 'worst mistake in show's history'

WHEEL Of Fortune fans were in complete shock when one contestant bungled an obvious answer and it cost them $10,000.

Contestant Tenaya was competing in the second round and doing really well, including getting the $10,000 bonus wedge, when things went horribly wrong.

She had almost all the letters, including vowels, for the 'showbiz' clue and was left with the tiles “_urassic Park _o_ies.”

Host Pat Sajak urged her to make a guess, and hesitant sounding Teyana asked, “Jurassic Park Bodies?”

The correct answer was in fact, Jurrasic Park Movies, referring to the dinosaur themed mega-film franchise kicked off by Steven Spielberg in 1993.

Viewers watching at home could not believe Teyana got such and obvious answer wrong, labelling it the "worst mistake" in the game show's history.

"Jurassic Park "Bodies"!?? I can't root for folks anymore," wrote one frustrated fan on Twitter.

Another added: “'Jurassic Park Bodies' – even Sajak couldn’t keep from laughing."

And a third wrote: "Oh good grief! Did she really just say JURASSIC PARK BODIES?"

Teyana may have missed out on the bonus puzzle and $10,000, but she still went home with plenty of money.

“It's gonna be OK,” host Pat said to her. “

It really was fun having you here. I hope you had a good time, 'cause I did. $4,500 that round. You won $5,500.”

As if Teyana's blunder didn't get enough attention, the official Jurassic Park Twitter account got in on the action.

It shared a video of the cringe moment with the caption, “Ho__ on__ y_ur b___s."

That was of course a reference to Samuel L Jackon's character Ray Arnold in the original 1993 film.

"Hold onto your butts,” the actor said, delivering one of the most iconic lines in the franchise.
