It was a rough night on Wednesday for one Wheel of Fortune contestant as she came oh so close to landing a large prize.

Unfortunately, she missed out on more than $10,000 and a trip to the bonus round because of a huge mistake, which has since gone viral on social media.

In the second round, contestant Tenaya seemed to be well on her way to solving “_urassic Park _o_ies.”

She had also obtained a US$10,000 bonus wedge for the puzzle, so things were looking up. However, when she went to solve the puzzle, she guessed incorrectly.

“Jurassic Park Bodies?” Tenaya asked.

The correct answer was in fact “Jurassic Park Movies,” which, of course, is in reference to the multibillion-dollar film franchise that Stephen Spielberg brought to life in 1993.

Viewers were stunned by the incorrect response and many took to Twitter to discuss.

"'Jurassic Park "Bodies'!?? I can't root for folks anymore," one person exclaimed, while another called it "one of the funnier guesses".

"I saw this and burst into laughter. There's a new movie title coming," another wrote.

While she missed out on the bonus puzzle and a lot of cash, Tenaya still walked away pretty well off.

“It's gonna be OK,” host Pat Sajak told her.

“It really was fun having you here. I hope you had a good time, 'cause I did. $4,500 that round. You won $5,500.”
