The funniest game show bloopers
Wheel of Fortune: An entirely different kind of desire
One Wheel of Fortune contestant revealed himself to hardly be a Tennessee Williams fan during a 2017 episode of the game show. With the board displaying "A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE," contestant Kevin guessed the letter "K," hoping to fill in the clue to read "A STREETCAR NAKED DESIRE." Not only did he miss the correct answer of Williams' 1947 play, A Streetcar Named Desire, but Kevin also made headlines for his off-color interpretation of the puzzle.
Family Feud: ''Nekkid grandma'' for the win!
While technically true, it seemed obvious to everyone other than the contestant that the most popular answer to ''Something a burglar would not want to see when he breaks into a house'' would not be ''naked grandma.'' Nonetheless, he slapped that buzzer like a man on fire, spat out his answer, and received a knowing nod of agreement from his opponent. The judges were clearly amused because they generously awarded him the points under the number 2 slot: ''Gun/Occupant.'' —Lanford Beard
The Price is Right: Come on down, but keep your clothes up
When golden-voiced announcer Johnny Olson uttered his famous catchphrase ''Come on down!'' he meant the person, not her clothing. Unfortunately, this contestant's tube top didn't get the memo. No worries! Bob Barker and his skinny mic were there to provide the necessary levity, cracking, ''I know you truly love me, but you don't really love me this much, do you?'' Olson didn't miss a beat: ''Bob, they have given their all for you!'' —Lanford Beard
Don't always go with your first instinct... especially if it's racist
Should the takeaway here be ''Think too hard, and you become a bigot?'' When asked what the word ''yellow'' could mean when used to describe another person, an Aryan-looking child was clearly pained to put forth the answer, ''Chinese?'' And yet, the youngster went ahead. Perhaps one of the other competitors would know the correct response? Oh, I know! Let's pan to... the Chinese kid. Yikes. (He got it right, by the way.) —Lanford Beard
Wheel of Fortune: Take that, Tom Hanks and your two Oscars
Creating some of film's most iconic roles didn't do diddly for the beloved actor when a cultural illiterate got within two letters of answering a question about his 1999 film The Green Mile, or should we call it The Green Mole? Interestingly, Hanks was not among the film's four Oscar nominations. Coincidence? —Lanford Beard
Family Feud: Frisky Grandma
Not to be confused with ''nekkid grandma....'' When asked to ''Name something that men wear to bed,'' this super-cougar issued an amazing Isn't it obvious? look before saying nonchalantly, ''Condoms.'' The action (hubba hubba) starts at 2:11 in. —Lanford Beard
Jeopardy: ''What is...pussy furry?''
We're not sure why contestant Raya decided to prematurely answer this question about the full title of the film, Cats & Dogs, but we're plenty glad she did because her befuddled moment of panic led to an unintentionally lurid (and easily misinterpreted) answer, that even caused usually unflappable Alex Trebek to cast a smirk. —Nuzhat Naoreen
When Teen Jeopardy front-runner Stephan, incorrectly answers a question about an Oscar nominated actress, he exasperatedly blurts out the F-word. Unfortunately for him, though Trebek had already moved on to the next contestant, the cameras hadn't, and the moment went on to become a viral sensation. —Nuzhat Naoreen
Wheel of Fortune Kelly Ree-paaa & Regis Phil-M-aan
We know the show was titled Regis & Kelly, but considering how long the two hosts had been on the air by this time you'd think at least one of these contestants would have figured out how to pronounce their last names. Instead, they repeatedly butcher it, even after buying enough vowels and consonants to solve the puzzle. Now, if only they could have bought common sense. —Nuzhat Naoreen
Jeopardy!: ''What's a hoe?''
The category: ''Tool Time.'' The answer: ''This term for a long-handled gardening tool can also mean an immoral pleasure seeker.'' Ken Jennings' question: ''What's a hoe?''
It was the only time our mind was on the same level as his. (And it's a rake, Ken. RAKE.) —Mandi Bierly
Wheel of Fortune: 'SHI_T' Happens
The goal of Wheel of Fortune is to fill in letters, but sometimes, the wait is worth it.* Like when the final word of a three-word puzzle stands at SHI_T, and one contestant guesses F, and there isn't one. And the next contestant lands on Bankrupt, so the cameraman has show the puzzle again, which still reads SHI_T. ''R?'' says the third contestant. ''Thank you!'' says Pat Sajak. —Mandi Bierly

Password Plus: 'Cigar' Lady
So you know that Saturday Night Live sketch ''Secret Word'' in which Kristen Wiig's theatrical Mindy Grayson says the word she's supposed to be describing. It happened more often than you'd think on Password and its many incarnations. We enjoy the ''Cigar'' lady because her reaction needed to be bleeped. —Mandi Bierly
Family Feud: Private Parts
The survey wouldn't have said ''Penis,'' but one woman did when told, ''We asked 100 men, name a part of your body that's bigger than it was when you were 16...'' Host Steve Harvey had to take a knee and let the clock run out as the audience giggled. The contestant argued she'd used the medical term, but Harvey maintained that was worse: Why couldn't she have used board-friendly slang, like ''ding-a-ling'' or ''winky?'' ''We're keeping that answer?'' he asked producers. Apparently so. — Mandi Bierly
Wheel of Fortune: Just say no to drugs
It's perfectly understandable why a contestant would think the ''People'' puzzle was ''A Group of Pill-Pushers'' (as opposed to Well-Wishers). Or not. Yelled Pat Sajak, ''This is Wheel of Fortune, Joe!'' Pat's right. If they were going to go there, they would have just done ''Drug dealers'' — less work for Vanna. —Mandi Bierly
Catch Phrase's Bananas Blooper
Or was it a Twinkie? Or, in reality, the show's mascot, named Mr. Chips? Doesn't matter: Whatever it was, it should not have been doing that with that poor snake. —Kate Ward
Consult Urban Dictionary, Jeopardy!
Despite what your college frat brothers might have told you, the answer to ''A blow to the back of the neck is the punch named for this animal'' is not a donkey. At least not on Jeopardy!. Is it wrong that we're still wondering why Alex didn't accept this answer? —Kate Ward
Newlyweds Get Dirty
It's a blooper so unbelievable and so infamous, it became an urban legend, according to Newlywed Game host Bob Eubanks. Lesson learned: If someone's going to ask you for the weirdest place you've ever wanted to ''make whoopee,'' make sure you ask for clarification. —Kate Ward
Who Wants To Be a Viral Sensation?
Delighting third-grade astronomy students everywhere. (Aw, hell, who are we kidding? All of us.) —Kate Ward
What a Turkey!
A blooper from a man who has clearly never been to a beach or shopped in a supermarket, but, by Job, are we glad he stopped by an episode of the U.K.'s Family Fortunes. —Kate Ward
Price is Right titty cats
After shouting ''titty cats!'' on national TV, most people would want to bury their heads under a mound of kitty litter, but this Price is Right contestant just keeps bopping up and down excitedly, waiting to here Bob Barker's answer. We can't tell if she's oblivious to her mistake or proud of her brazen naughtiness. Either way, though, we're laughing. —Grady Smith
Price is Right faint
Most people think the Price is Right's ''Showcase Showdown'' is just a contest between two contestants, but as this swooning victor proves, sometimes the actual showcase wins the showdown. After winning a new car, Alene drops to the ground in utter shock. Sure, we were scared for her health, but we must admit, this is certainly a more exciting way to end an episode than being told to get our pets spayed or neutered! —Grady Smith
Price is Right car accident
Poor girl isn't helping to break any of the Price is Right model stereotypes, but, to be fair, she was utterly exhausted from having to showcase 18 tubes of arthritis creme earlier in the day. Thankfully, after crashing a new car into the set, she turns on her professional smile and does her best to sell the vehicle. Hey, at least it's safe! —Grady Smith
If we've learned anything this week, it's that Jeopardy seems to bring out the inner-perv in all of us. Must be something in the air over there — or maybe Alex Trebek? — no, no definitely just something in the air. How else do you account for this facepalm-worthy ''nymphomania'' blunder, found at 1:47? —Grady Smith
Bob Eubanks announces a ''boner'' question
Sometimes veteran game show hosts like Bob Eubaanks, can get a little bit too excited during the boner — I mean BONUS round! Check out the gaffe at 0:13 in this video. —Grady Smith
Family Feud Russians
Why go wracking your brain for answers when you can always just state the obvious as this well-traveled contestant (at 7:10 in) did when he answered ''Russians'' when asked to name something Russia was famous for. —Abby West
When The Price is Right goes really wrong
Kisses and hugs were all pretty common for Drew Carey as the host of The Price is Right, but a knee to the groin from an excited contestest called for a little improvisation, particularly since she had no idea what she'd done. Carey's attempts to mask his pain screamed ''The show must go on... oh nuts, this hurts!'' —Abby West
