Lisa riled viewers when she bought a pointless vowel while nearly having the entire phrase solved.
Kristopher R. (@cheesehead1976) pointed out that the answer to Lisa’s puzzle was clearly, “Pepperoni Pineapple Pizza.” Although she was only missing an “O” in pepperoni and two “Z’s,” Lisa still chose to blow $250 buying the vowel “O.” With her unnecessary vowel, she immediately solved the puzzle, infuriating audiences everywhere.
Lisa buys a vowel when the answer is painfully obvious. Pepperoni Pineapple Pizza. #WheelOfFortune#Dumb
Another user called her out for wasting money on the spin, tweeting, “I hate when contestants buy vowels after their first spin.”
To top off the frustrating episode, a series of bankruptcies from the other contestants led to Lisa securing an unexpected victory. In the end, she went home with a car, but not without making herself unpopular in the eyes of viewers for her terrible move.
