The leading contestant, Nura Fountano, suddenly started guessing wrong letters on Wheel of Fortune during Veterans’ Week. And most believe she had a very good reason.
There are moments in our lives when we're given the opportunity to be selfless and bless another soul. And in this video, a Wheel of Fortune contestant did just that when she purposely guessed wrong letters to let a fellow veteran win the round.
The classic game honors veterans on the show for special episodes each year. In this particular moment, three contestants are solving the final spin with the category of, "What are you doing?"
The guessing begins with Troy. He lands on $1600 and guesses the letter "T," which adds $3200 in his bank. The next turn goes to Nura Fountano, the current leader. And she responds with the unlikely, "Z."

As the round gets back to Nura the next time, she acts as if she cannot think of anything and misses her turn. When it comes back around she guesses, "Q."
Steve gets up to $3200 and when it gets back to Nura again, she yells out, "X." The others are all continually startled by her blatant guessing of wrong letters. Ultimately, Steve solves the puzzle.
The host comes over to Nura and says, "May I ask you a question? You called some unusual letters." She responds, "That's what I thought." Nura smiles sweetly.
Pat ends saying, "Well that was an unsatisfactory answer, but she's not under oath. There's nothing I can do, but she's the big winner with $13,970." Nura begins to cheer out loud joyfully. Her selflessness and generosity have gone viral with over one million viewers.
Just saw the classiest move on “Wheel of Fortune.” Nura threw the final puzzle to let a fellow military person win it. Much respect.

Nura intentionally guessing the wrong letters reminds us to look out for others. Steve was the only one without any money, and she could have easily won more. However, she chose to be generous and look towards his interests. Through the help of God, we can choose to look out for the needs of others too.
"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4
