One Wheel of Fortune contestant might not quite understand how solving a puzzle works.

When the contestant before him guesses incorrectly and runs out of time, it becomes his turn.

He guesses the same as she did, The Pointed Desert, which isn’t correct.

He pauses, asks if he can solve and guesses the same thing once again.

The next contestant finally guesses correctly, The Painted Desert.

He laughs, possibly not yet realizing he just lost out on $9,000.
