This video truly hurt our heart.

A Wheel of Fortune contestant named Julian was preparing to win one million dollars after guessing the last letters in the puzzle ‘Mythological hero Achilles,” but one small mispronunciation cost him his prize.

He mispronounced the Greek hero’s name with a ‘ch’ sound, instead of the standard ‘K’ sound when speaking Greek. Because he didn’t properly pronounce the word/name, his answer was wrong and the female contestant after him was able to say the word correctly and won the round.

We would have had to fight someone…forreal. Check out the video below.
