Throwback Thursday: Julian’s Achilles Heel Proves Costly

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — It’s Throwback Thursday, so, today we go back a few months to revisit an unfortunate moment for one Indiana University student whose appearance on a popular game show will quickly take you from exhilaration to grief.

This viral video shows Julian, a Wheel of Fortune contestant, who seems to be a whiz at spelling.

He guesses all the puzzles correctly and picks up prizes along the way. The problem is that he mispronounces the phrases.

Poof. Everything he earned vanishes.

According to reports, the mistake one car, a million dollars, and a trip to London.

The kid is going to be okay, despite the firestorm of angry comments the video has garnered. We’ll blame this game show fail on TV jitters.
