Tuesday was a tough night for the Wheel of Fortune contestants. All three contestants struggled to solve a puzzle, which seemed fairly simple.
The final puzzle in regulation game play was a phrase, which quickly became “TH_ Q_ _STION R_ _ _INS.” The first contestant guessed “the question rounds” and “the question raising.” The second contestant added an “M” and then guessed “the question reminds.” And finally the third contestant bought an “E” resulting in the puzzle “THE Q _ ESTION REM _ INS.” He didn’t even try to guess before the buzzer sounded.
Host Pat Sajak was shocked all three contestants could not solve the puzzle. And fans at home took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.

I can't believe three adults seemed to be unfamiliar with the phrase "The Question Remains".
All-time choke. Can’t believe he just stood there afterward like a doofus.— Kyle Piercy (@rkpiercy) October 22, 2019
Just witnessed two adult humans completely whiff on the phrase “THE QUESTION REMAINS” literally missing only the A in REMAINS. Man I gotta get on this show #WheelOfFortune— Alex Jacob (@whoisalexjacob) October 22, 2019
The puzzle came full circle and the first contestant got another crack at it. This time she guessed correctly, causing Sajak to exclaim, “Good job. I never thought it would get back to you!”
