Former NFL running back and Dancing With The Stars Season 24 winner, Rashad Jennings, recently found himself in a rather embarrassing situation. The mishap occurred during an episode of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune when he attempted to solve a puzzle involving the iconic movie director Quentin Tarantino.
Rashad Jennings Failed To Guess One Letter on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune
Rashad Jennings recently took the Celebrity Wheel of Fortune stage alongside fellow NFL stars Marcellus Wiley and Jared Allen. During the episode, one of the puzzles required Jennings to complete the phrase “DRIVING TO RENO WITH QUENTIN TARANTINO.” This saying was under the “rhyme” category. By the time Jennings was going to guess, he only needed the letter “Q” to spell out Tarantino’s first name. However, instead of choosing the obvious “Q,” he confidently blurted out the letter “P.”
Host Pat Sajak‘s response was a straightforward, “No, No, I’m sorry no.” A moment of laughter from someone in the background underscored the blunder. Jennings had $4,050 in winnings at that point, and his error left him without the chance to solve the puzzle.
