A “Wheel of Fortune” contestant made a risky move during the bonus round.
During Wednesday’s episode, a game show player named Bradley snuck in a special message before solving the puzzle.
The phrase on the letter board spelled out “HAPP_ T_ HEAR THAT,” with only two letters missing from the puzzle.
“Now, don’t tense up, you have only 10 seconds to do this, not 11, 10. Good luck,” longtime game show host Pat Sajak suggested.

Within 10 seconds, the “Wheel of Fortune” contestant decided to give a special shoutout to his loved ones before solving the phrase.
“Sino, Kalani, Shiloh, Daddy loves you… Happy to hear that,” Bradley proudly shouted.
“Yeah, that’s it! Pretty sneaky,” Sajak said to the game player.

“What if in the middle of your greeting, the buzzer went off?” he continued to question.
Bradley didn’t appear to mind, since his bonus round prize was a brand-new car.
The contestant was ecstatic as he was seen enthusiastically clapping and running to his shiny new prize, a red Chevy SUV.
“Wheel of Fortune” co-host Vanna White opened the car door for Bradley and made a gesture for him to test out the passenger seat.
After White closed the car door behind him and patted Bradley on the arm, Sajak announced that the winning player would be taking home $58,569.
“That’s the way to go out.”
Bradley was all smiles as he waved excitedly out the car window.
The “Wheel of Fortune” Twitter account shared the viral moment with the caption, “Bradley’s answer isn’t what you’re expecting,” with an eyeball emoji.
Fans were quick to react to Bradley’s bold move before solving the puzzle.
“Gutsy move. 10 seconds isn’t all that long,” one Twitter user wrote.

During an episode of the beloved game show, a player from Louisiana named Micki guessed the puzzle letter incorrectly, causing major disappointment among fans.
Micki was three letters away from winning not only the million-dollar wedge but also a trip to Croatia.
The puzzle for the category “Thing” on the board read “A ROARING FIRE IN THE FIRE _ _ A _ E.”
After Sajak asked what letter the contestant wanted, she nervously replied with the letter “S.”
Micki appeared defeated after the buzzer sounded, signaling her guess was incorrect. The audience members were also heard groaning in the background over her letter choice.
Sajak replied, “You got the reaction, no ‘S,’ I’m sorry.”
“Wheel of Fortune” fans were quick to slam the mistake on Twitter after the episode.
“Getting angry at Wheel of Fortune. Just another Friday night,” one annoyed fan wrote.
