Playing 'Wheel of Fortune' Contestant Epically Bombs Puzzle With One Letter Missing

Something tells us a contestant on Wheel of Fortune won't live down his now-viral flub anytime soon.

Twitter was left screaming on Tuesday night, when one man seemingly had the puzzle in the bag, which had just one letter missing. But "A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE" turned out to be the player's downfall -- when asked to name a letter, he said "K."

... Even members of the studio audience couldn't contain their shock.

Obviously, the contestant, named Kevin, wasn't familiar with Tennessee Williams' classic play. ... And social media couldn't get enough.

Even host Pat Sajak couldn't resist ribbing Kevin before parting ways.

"The nice thing I can tell from meeting you, you're a nice guy, and I'll bet you have really nice friends. They're not going to make any remarks to you, they're not going to give you any grief at all. Good luck with that," Sajak joked.
