'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune': How did 'Queer Eye' star win only $7,000? Fans say it was 'painful to watch'
Fans still encouraged him via social media says, 'but your attitude the whole game was great'
The ‘Queer Eye’ actor Karamo Brown’s presence on ‘Celebrity Wheels of Fortune’ indeed added an edge to the episode, thanks to his comedy chops and stories about dressing up as the host Vanna White using his mother’s towel when he was only seven years old. But, it seems luck didn’t favor him as he couldn’t solve some of the easiest puzzles, thus winning only $7,000.
Brown had an impressive start on the show as he won $2,000 in the first toss by guessing the puzzle 'Stage Fright'. But, he somehow couldn’t guess the rights consonants for the next few puzzles, which led to him losing out on many chances to win the big prize.
He wins one of the toss rounds 'What are you doing' by guessing filing the puzzle 'Checking my email' successfully, earning $5,000. But, one of the major hiccups Brown faced was during the next 'What are you doing?' round, where despite spinning the wheel multiple times, he failed to guess the puzzle.
When he struggled to put the letters together, fans surfaced on Twitter with the right answer to help their favorite celebrity, while others were simply surprised to see how Brown wasn’t able to complete the phrase 'Discussing with my imaginary friends'.
One joked, "@Karamo I hope your imaginary friend is mad at you #celebritywheeloffortune." Another wrote, "2 games, 1 hour and Karamo only won $7000 total on his own. shame. #CelebrityWheelOfFortune."
A user tweeted, "@Karamo I felt bad for you with that puzzle, But your attitude the whole game was great! Darn you “discussing” #CelebrityWheelOfFortune #Puzzles #WheelOfFortune."
One tweeted, "@Karamo, That was one of the most heartbreaking moments I have EVER seen in ANY game show! #CelebrityWheelOfFortune “Discussing It With My Imaginary Friend” #WinterFunAndGames." Adding to that, another wrote, "How did Karamo notttt get that last puzzle?!? That was so painful to watch #WheelofFortune #CelebrityWheelOfFortune #CelebrityWheel"
Meanwhile, ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ star Jennie Garth did not just make the latest, February 17, episode of ‘Celebrity Wheel of Fortune’ fun, but she also earned a big cheque for her charity. Playing for Central Illinois Food Bank, the actress ended the game by making it to the $1M bonus round and winning a total of $168,000 for the charity with her impressive performance.
