Just three weeks in and the fandom is already complaints galore for 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune'. Viewers are ripping the show apart for spelling errors and also for including celebrities who they don't know of, and who neither know the game, they think.

The most recent episode of the show saw a major slip-up in the form of a spelling error highlighted big and bold as one of the puzzles for the night appeared on the screen. 'Dyeing my hair' was spelled as 'Dying my hair', and that was the first of many grievances the audience found with the episode. This episode in particular reunited the cast of 'Holey Moley', as it saw contestants Rob Riggle, Joe Tessitore and Jeannie Mai compete for a chance to win up to $1 million for their chosen charity. Riggle was playing for Meals on Wheels, Tessitore for Wide Horizons For Children, and Mai was playing for No Kid Hungry. 

Those aware of Riggle and Tessitore's stint as on-camera sports commentators on 'Holy Moley', as Mai joined them as a reporter from the sidelines, were quick to point out the reunion. For others, it was snide complaints like, "Who the fuck are these celebrities on “celebrity” wheel of fortune? Y’all couldn’t find a real one? Yikes." To others, the lack of Mai's knowledge of the game wasn't forgivable. "I haven’t watched Wheel of Fortune in ages. Just caught a celebrity episode and it was embarrassing watching Jeannie from The Real play when she clearly has never watched the show." They added: "a little painful to watch but glad she got some money for her charity."



 



 



 



 



 

But the complaints didn't' stop at that. When the spelling error happened, fans took to Twitter to point out "[email protected] just spelled "dyeing" wrong. Come on!" Others highlighted the error too, noting: "Did... did Celebrity Wheel of Fortune just have a puzzle that said 'dying my hair?' DYING?! IT'S DYEING! Actually, it's coloring, not dyeing, BUT STILL!" A particularly loyal and nostalgic fan found all of this very frustrating, as they wrote "I've watched Wheel of Fortune since I was a kid & do not recall ever seeing a spelling error until tonight's Celebrity edition had "DYING MY HAIR." arrrggh"

'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' airs on Thursdays at 8 pm only on ABC.
