WHEEL of Fortune fans have blasted Wednesday night’s contestants as “dummies” after two of them made the same unbelievable mistake.
Host Pat Sajak has been praised for having the best response to the mind-boggling situation.
During the first Toss Up game of the night, two players ended up making a big error when it came to their answers.
Contestant Miranda was the first to buzz in to try to solve, but she got it wrong with the response, “Splendid surprise.”
While this ended up being close to correct, there weren’t even enough boxes on the board for the second word to be right.
“Nooo,” Pat told her. “Everybody else?”

Just a few seconds later, with all but three letters filled in on the Wheel of Fortune puzzle, player Jeff buzzed in to give his own response.
It turned out, his response was the exact same as the one his competitor had just tried moments before.
He asked: “Splendid surprise?”
Pat just sarcastically responded: “Still not, no.”

Miranda looked like she was holding back her laughter, while the final player, Kevin, finally buzzed in with the correct answer: “Splendid sunrise.”
Fans blasted the contestants for being “dummies” for making such a mistake during the puzzle.
One shared a clip of the moment and just wrote: “I can't. I just can't anymore,” adding in a face face-palm emojis.
Another seemed to enjoy Pat’s side off it all, tweeting generally how it all went down: “Splendid surprise – No.
“SPLENDID SURPRISE – Also no.”
A third praised the host, writing: “‘Still incorrect.’ Thank you Pat, that was the perfect response.”
Pat’s response during Wednesday’s episode was very different from the one he had in a similar situation that occurred a few weeks ago.
The host had to step in and calm down a contestant after she made a major mistake.
Contestant Amy could hardly contain her excitement to compete, but as she and her fellow competitors guessed various puzzles, viewers speculated that she was unclear about the rules of the game.
Many noted several slip-ups – one of which cost her greatly.
At one point, Amy spun and landed on a trip to Hawaii, but she quickly lost the lush vacay when she guessed a letter already on the board.
"Such a careless mistake…losing the chance for a million and a trip to Hawaii by calling an existing letter… amy," one Twitter user wrote.
A second tweet read: "Amy…omg. she really isn't paying attention."
During the show, Pat was a bit more kind to her as he jumped in to calm Amy, urging her to shake her hands and take a moment to collect herself.
Fans have been conflicted about Pat's attitude on the show lately, with many finding this kindness on the show out of the ordinary for him.
Online user have often slammed Pat, who has been hosting the show for more than 40 years, over his demeanor, even calling for his firing or for him to retire.
After one episode last month, one viewer wrote: "I wish Pat Sajak would retire from Wheel of Fortune."
Another particularly terse viewer did not mince words, tweeting: "Pat Sajak has been a d**k for years.
