THREE Wheel of Fortune contestants took eight turns and 10 attempts to solve a puzzle in what fans are calling the show's 'dumbest moment ever.'
Tuesday night's episode caused fans of the game show to "scream at their TV" according to many exasperated social media posts that even say that the round was so "brutal" that it should have ended with "no winner."
Players continuously guessed incorrect answers in an attempt to solve the puzzle "Another feather _n yo_r _a_” when the answer was simply "Another feather in your cap."
Game player Laura Machado first had three infuriating guesses for the final word as she attempted to solve the puzzle: hat, lap, and map.
The show's cohosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White looked on as another contestant Christopher Coleman failed to guess any correct letters and spun the famous wheel, landing on Bankrupt.
Player Thomas Lipscomb guessed the letter "C" on his third try and finally solved the phrase after scoring a Bankrupt and Lose a Turn in the first two attempts.
Viewers couldn't believe that the seemingly common phrase was overlooked so many times in the infuriating on-air moments.
Actor Josh Gad tweeted out a hilarious video of him giggling as he watched the controversial moment, captioned: "God help us all".

WHEEL OF FORTUNE MISTAKES
This isn't the first time that fans of the American game show have been shocked by contestants' wrong answers amongst the high stakes.
One contestant just last week fumbled an obvious answer that cost her $10,000 when she guessed "Jurassic Park bodies" instead of the correct answer "Jurassic Park movies."
Another player lost out on a brand new car after stuttering while solving the puzzle, prompting outrage from viewers.
Sajak has had his own blunders on-air throughout the years as well, including when he accidentally said the answer to the puzzle.
There have been multiple million-dollar winners since the show's debut in 1975.
