Controversy surrounding Wheel of Fortune

One of the world's most popular game shows, Wheel of Fortune, is stuck in controversy and for the first time ABC 57 is hearing from the woman at the center of it.

A woman recently went to solve a puzzle.  She said "seven swans a swim-in" while the the answer was "seven swans a swimming". Because of the way she said it, she didn't win the prize.

"I think regionally everyone has a little bit of their own, you know someone from New England is definitely going to have a different type of speech than I do being in the south," said Renne Durette.

Despite the fact viewers have gone crazy posting nasty messages on Twitter, the contestant has been understanding about the loss. The contestant has even been defending host Pat Sajack.
