These 'Wheel Of Fortune' Fails Will Leave You Shaking Your Head (VIDEO)

It's called "Wheel Of Fortune" but sometimes "Wheel of Misfortune" would be a better name for the widely popular game show.

When it comes to winning on the show, there's not much to it.

Contestants take turns buying letters to play what's essentially a live television version of Hangman. Once players think they know what the phrase is, they can take a stab at the phrase or saying or song lyric. Contestants usually nail it but sometimes they don't.

Watch the video above for some of the show's most epic blunders.
