The NAB Achievement In Broadcasting Dinner

Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak accidentally gave away the answer to a puzzle last week and the contestant didn't catch it. Pat accidentally revealed the puzzle during the bonus round when half of the letters were still unturned. Sajak told the contestant, "I'd rather be standing here than there, quite frankly." "Quite frankly," as it turned out, was the unsolved puzzle. Even after the slip, the contestant was still unable to solve it. At the end of the episode, Sajak said it goes to show that contestants are concentrating on the puzzle and are not paying any attention to him.

Whoops! I bet they are REALLY kicking themselves after that one. It was a gift!
