WATCH: Wheel of Fortune contestant makes sure everyone walks away with something

The Daily Catch - published on 01/07/17

It was Veterans Week when Nura Fountano was spinning wheel and leaving her rivals in the dust. However, seeing that she was in the lead she bombed the last question to give her brothers-in-arms a chance to leave with some money as well:

Contestants needed to choose letters to identify the puzzle, “Following Footprints,” but Fountano started making unusual choices, according to Fox2. When host Pat Sajack asked Fountano to pick a letter, she made the worst possible choice – the letter Z. Sajack was visibly confused, and asked: “Say that again for me? Did you say ‘Z’?!” “As in Zulu. Z.” But she wasn’t done yet. The veteran continued to make terrible choices. She also chose “X” and missed her opportunity to answer twice because she took too long. No surprise – she lost the round. The cash was awarded to fellow veteran and contestant, Steve, who had very little prize money at the time.

Cheers to Nura for her act of mercy to a fellow veteran. We wish you all the best!
