Back in 2014, a Wheel of Fortune contestant named Julian Batts went down in TV history for one of the most unfortunate near-wins ever seen.

Although he missed out on the million, he won the episode and took home $11,700, which is still a nice payout for answering a few questions.


Surely the dumbest two minutes of any quiz show ever had people facepalming into next week
