Tuesday's episode featured a contestant named Kevin coming up short in epic fashion when trying to name Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play to solve the puzzle.

Kevin's answer, "A Streetcar Naked Desire," had Wheel watchers doing the equivalent of the palm smack to the forehead.

Kevin can take solace in the fact that there has a been "Wheel of Fortune" contestant who lost even when having every single letter of the puzzle shown on the board.

Unfortunately, Kevin's puzzle fail cost him $1,000 and allowed fellow contestant Lisa to swoop in for the win.

"And although you got the right answer, I’d rather see Kevin’s play," host Pat Sajak joked.
