In the Person category—which was ultimately “Founding Partner”—Julia from Wylie, Texas, had trouble reading the letters on the board. Her inability to decipher the first word meant that she was unable to win the $40,000 additional prize, despite understanding the “partner” portion of the answer.
As a sign of support for Julie, other followers expressed their perplexity about the solution on social media. “Founding Partner? The writers really phoned that one in! #wheeloffortune,” one fan tweeted.
Another viewer of the game show shared on Twitter, “@WheelofFortune Founding partner is not a thing: founding fathers YES. Such BS.”

A founder partner is often a term used to indicate the shareholder or owners of one of the first businesses bought by an equity-backed platform company, according to the Corporate Finance Institute.
Julie, whose 9-year-old son and brother (who she referred to as the “highlight of her life”) came to support her, nonetheless won $15,170 despite losing in the bonus round.
Nevertheless, some fans weren’t even able to watch Friday’s or Thursday’s program since several local stations elected to air the NCAA basketball tournament instead.
The Wheel of Fortune Twitter account sent an update regarding the preemption. “If you are unable to see tonight’s episode of Wheel due to NCAA March Madness or other special programming on your local station, we will accept any puzzle solution or word of your choice (please keep it clean) submitted by 2.59 p.m. PT tomorrow (Friday, March 17) as valid for the Fun & Games $10K Giveaway.”
