One of the most exciting parts about watching Wheel of Fortune on TV is seeing a contestant get in ‘the zone.’ Those moments when they are seeing the board perfectly and racking up prizes from the wheel spins make the show great.
On the flipside, watching a Wheel of Fortune contestant struggle mightily is also entertaining albeit for different reasons…
Justin was a recent contestant on Wheel of Fortune. He is a school principal back at his home in Kansas City, Missouri. And he might have the worst luck of any WoF contestant in the history of the show.
Every. Single. Time. that Justin spun the wheel disaster struck. Things got so bad the show tweeted out a video of Justin’s misfortune:
Don't worry, we spoke to the wheel after the show and asked it to apologize to Justin for its behavior today. pic.twitter.com/MrlXuT5iRe

If Twitter doesn’t work you can find the video here on Instagram.
Justin’s spins in order:
3. Lose a turn.
6. Lose A Turn.
It was only on Justin’s 7th and final spin on Wheel of Fortune that he landed on a $ amount but that was during the ‘Triple Toss Up’ and it was only because he had to keep spinning UNTIL he hit a dollar amount.
Folks on Twitter had a lot to say about Justin’s struggles with the wheel:
All the years I’ve been watching this the second time I’ve seen this happen where it’s bankrupt then lose a turn. Once in college week & now.
How heavy is the wheel.

I spun 3 bankrupts when I was on and that was bad enough.

It was a first for many viewers:
Hey was a good sport. Brutal…even on the final spin hah. Never seen that, they probably edit that out typically.

Hopefully, he gets another shot at the show sometime in the future.
