Can you name the capital of New Zealand? Apparently Pat Sajak or the Wheel of Fortune contestants tonight can’t.
As the final spin of the Wheel of Fortune game came tonight, the board read A_ _ _ LAND, New ZEALAND. It doesn’t get easier than that!
Yet the contestants went around the horn two times before a C, a K, and finally a U was guessed. But not before F and other out of place letters were guessed.
The final contestant reluctantly guessed Auckland New Zealand and then said something like “I still don’t know where that is.” Pat followed it up by stating it’s the capital of New Zealand.
I guess the contestants and the host aren’t frequent flyers.
And for the record, the capital of New Zealand is Wellington.
