We would suggest that Wheel Of Fortune Julian Batt get an education after his clueless (literally) appearance this week. But it was College Week and Batt is already in college. He’s actually an honors student in Business and English at the University of Indiana. The reason why he’s gone viral, though, is not because of his smarts. Oh no. He represents a new low in game show contestants who’ve lost loads of money with dumb answers.
Batt lost a million dollars, trips to Jamaica and London and a car with a series of answers we’re sure he wishes he could get back.
But there’s a silver lining – at least he was the night’s big winner, taking home over $11,000 in cash. But I don’t know, $11,000 vs. $1 million? We hope that these flubs were just a case of TV nerves.
Watch for yourself- was Batt truly clueless or just nervous?
