In Wheel of Fortune, contestants are expected to guess the really common letters like S or T or if you’re feeling super adventurous, maybe like a B or something. But one contestant, Nura, chose some slightly unorthodox letters which confused the hell out of host Pat Sajak.
Watch this Wheel of Fortune contestant call out some insane letters:
Sajak: “Say that again for me.”
Sajak: “Did you say Z?”
Nura: “Z as in Zulu.”
Sajak: “You did say Z… okay… uh… no. There’s no Z.”
A few turns later Sajak ponders, “I wonder what letter Nura will call,” and thankfully she doesn’t let him down when she asks for “X”. At the end of the round Sajak asked Nura about her bizarre strategy, but she only responded, “That’s what I saw.”
Z? Then no letter? Then Q? Is Nura drunk? #wheeloffortune

.@WheelofFortune Did Nura just call the letter 9?

However, some fans have chosen to give Nura the benefit of the doubt. It’s also possible that she was attempting to throw the challenge to one of her fellow competitors so everyone could win a little money.
Just saw the classiest move on “Wheel of Fortune.” Nura threw the final puzzle to let a fellow military person win it. Much respect.

Well, whatever she was doing must have worked. At the end of the day, Nura walked away with $13,970. Not too bad for someone who was scraping the bottom of the alphabetical barrel.
