‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestant will still get a new car

After a “Wheel of Fortune” contestant lost a new Audi due to a technicality, even though she answered the riddle correctly, the auto company said it would give her the vehicle instead.

Within days of her appearance on the long-running game show, Audi tracked down competitor Charlene Rubush and said she would give her the same car model that she had been denied on the show.
On a recent Christmas episode of “Wheel of Fortune”, Rubush had reached the bonus round with just 10 seconds to complete the missing letters of a puzzle, with the theme “What are you doing?” After guessing for the first time, “Choose the correct card”, he tried again: “Choose the … correct word!”
Rubush answered correctly, but stopped for a few seconds between “correct” and “word”.

“You know, this one is difficult because you said all the right words, including the word ‘word,’ but as you know, it has to be more or less continuous,” host Pat Sajak told Rubush, a hint of disappointment in his voice. “We will allow a little pause, but not four or five seconds.
“Sorry,” he continued. “You did a good job of getting it, but we can’t give you the award, and it was the Audi.”
Rubush ended his time through the program with $ 16,500 in profit, but without the Audi Q3, a luxury SUV that starts at $ 35,900.
A clip of the moment when Rubush lost the Audi due to a technicality was shared widely on Twitter, including by former “Jeopardy” winner Alex Jacob.

“Come on @WheelofFortune, the woman literally chose the right word,” he tweeted. “Give him the car.”
His plea and those of other “Wheel of Fortune” viewers gained ground, and Jacob shared that he had texted Audi asking for their help. Several hours later, Audi tweeted that Rubush was “a winner in our eyes” and would award her the Q3.
Tara Rush, Audi of America’s chief marketing officer, said the company was “delighted to gift Charlene” in a statement to CNN.
“After all, it is the season to give and, technicality or not, we are always eager to share a little bit of Audi magic and joy.” Rush said in the statement.
“Wheel of Fortune” did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNN.
The uproar over Rubush’s loss is at least the second time this year that the chances of potential “Wheel of Fortune” winners have been thwarted by a technicality. In April, a contestant used the word “and” in his final answer despite having answered the riddle correctly. Suffice it to say, fans were very unhappy, but that contestant was not given a car later for his troubles.
