Game show contestants stumped by super simple puzzle

Viewers have been left shocked after all three Wheel of Fortune contestants struggled to solve a puzzle on the show, which seemed fairly simple to many people.

The final puzzle ion the popular game show was the phrase “TH_ Q_ _STION R_ _ _INS” where the contestant had to fill in the blanks.

The first contestant guessed “the question rounds” and “the question raising.”

The second contestant added an “M” and then guessed “the question reminds.”

And finally the third contestant bought an “E” resulting in the puzzle “THE Q _ ESTION REM _ INS.” He didn’t even try to guess before the buzzer sounded.

Host Pat Sajak was shocked all three contestants could not solve the puzzle.

And fans at home took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter and reveal they all knew the answer was “THE QUESTION REMAINS”.

The puzzle came full circle and the first contestant got another crack at it. This time she guessed correctly, causing Sajak to exclaim, “Good job. I never thought it would get back to you!”
