‘Wheel of Fortune’ Hardest Puzzles Would Stump Even the Smartest Minds

Published

on

For 39 years, people have been tuning in to watch the evening showing of Wheel of Fortune. Although the popular show is facing some significant changes in the next few years, as host Pat Sajak and letter turner Vanna White consider retirement, one thing will endure — the puzzles.

While they’re usually challenging, sometimes what seems like an obvious escapes the contestants. And other times the answers these brave people come up with on camera amaze everyone. 

The show was inspired by a kids’ game

The show’s producer Merv Griffin came up with the idea for the show from Hangman, a game he used to play with his sister on long road trips. Most people have probably tried their hand at this simple word puzzle, where the players guess letters to help them figure out a word or phrase. 

To translate the game to television, the empty spaces were put up on a large, lit-up board, and the correctly guessed letters are revealed by White. To add to the excitement, the iconic wheel was added, so contestants can spin it to determine what prizes and money they would win for correct answers. Griffin added the wheel because he was fascinated by roulette wheels as a child. 

This simple formula was a hit, and for 26 years it was the highest-rated show in syndicated television. Viewers love to see people win piles of cash and prizes. Another part of the enduring appeal of the game is playing along at home and judging the contestants for their answers. Sometimes those answers are unbelievably off the mark.

Guesses gone wrong

Nervousness can do strange things to how the mind works, and sometimes that makes for very bad guesses under pressure. One time a contestant was faced with the nearly completed puzzle “A Streetcar Na_ed Desire,” clearly referring to the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire. Somehow they decided that the answer was “A Streetcar Naked Desire.”

Viewers also groaned the time a teacher guessed that “An _ _ _ y Child” was “An Ugly Child,” instead of the correct answer “An Only Child.”

But although the answers sometimes seem glaringly obvious, at other times the contestants seem to pull the right response out of thin air, with very little to guide them. 

Contestants sometimes guess very puzzles

The cerebral game show Jeopardy is often thought of as requiring more brainpower than Wheel of Fortune, but some of the contestants on the more simple show give correct answers that make them look like geniuses. With almost no information to help them, they come up with the answer, seemingly by magic. 

Once a quick-witted player guessed “I’ve Got A Good Feeling About This” with no letters except the L in “Feeling” showing on the board.

Another time, a clever contestant had nothing to go on in a five-word puzzle except “NT” in the middle of the first word and a “T” at the beginning of the third word. With only those tiny hints, they called out the right answer, the title of a John Denver song, “Country Roads Take Me Home.” 

Not many people would have gotten a two-word puzzle correct that one contestant did. The only letter that was showing on the board was a “T” in the middle of the second word, and yet somehow they figured out that the answer was “Championship Match.”

Wheel of Fortune has been a source of light-hearted fun for decades. But among the banter and entertaining gameplay, you can occasionally catch a glimpse of some serious brainpower.

Tito Tahan on How the Pandemic Has Affected Music Producers




In 2020, we learned just how much we need and love music. Being bored in the house and in the house bored, many of us have turned to gaming, tv, and music. Unfortunately, our long-standing battle with COVID-19 has caused many to submit and retract from further pursuing their musical careers. Nations are still crippled by the health crisis and many forced to socially distance themselves.



The detrimental effects of the global coronavirus pandemic have hit many industries. Pandemic restrictions have impacted almost every aspect of the music industry. For many live events from artists, djs and bands are still in question during 2021. How about music producers – are they affected and in what ways, and to what extent? To get an in-depth perspective, we will gain insight from multi-platinum music , Tito Tahan.




Meet Tito Tahan:

Tito Tahan is a multi-platinum record producer and entrepreneur who is setting the music industry fire with his impeccable ear for new talent and creative music for tv. Tito is a sync licensing expert with music on hundreds of tv shows, films airing every season. Tito’s popularity in the music industry is quite an achievement, considering the tremendous number of music producers in today’s marketplace and how the pandemic is still affecting our world.




How Tito Tahan has been affected by the Pandemic:

focuses on making beats privately in their home and offers beat licenses online. However, currently, the only option for most music producers is to collaborate virtually. This used to happen mostly in a recording studio or writing session and is now increasingly happening in a live remote session and through file-sharing platforms.

That being said, Tito has been working on new music for tv/films, creating music privately on his own terms, but he has also adapted to interacting virtually with other creatives. Being that Tito is also a caretaker for his elderly parents, he remains socially distancing to help avoid the spread of the effects of COVID-19 to his immediate family and close friends. In order to help the music producer community battle this pandemic, Tito is currently building a new quarantine recording studio in his hometown of Cleveland, OH with remote recording and producing capabilities to ensure the safety of all creative participants.

Tito Tahan on Music Producers during the Pandemic:

Music production is a creative collective and usually a collaboration between artists, songwriters, and music producers. This doesn’t apply to all music producers as the typical bedroom producer



According to Tito Tahan, Founder, and CEO of ProducerLife Multimedia, “it is very hard to replace the in-studio experience with collaborators. The alignment of in-person sessions is essential to the creative collective process and provides an element of collaboration unlike any other.” Tito and his latest roster signee – Broadway Bandjo have been working on his new project while safely implementing these new remote online recording methods as well.

Tito sees the vision for how the future music producer will interact with the rest of the community successfully. He feels the future for music producers, is; live online recording and production sessions, along with remote collaboration between creatives. Now more than ever, we all it is important to be fully accessible online. From production to mixing, brand awareness, and e-commerce. He feels passionate about working with other music producers and artists in the future. According to Tito Tahan, “We are the creators, we need to be fully aware as a community about how we interact and push the music producer culture forward. Let’s do it together. Let’s do it safely. Let’s do it for us. Let’s do it for the world and all future music producers.”
