Wheel of Fortune” might have made history on May 23 for one of the most mystifying answers ever given by a contestant.

Things got X-rated on the family-friendly game show when a contestant named Tavaris misidentified a popular phrase.

Vanna White, as always, was on hand to reveal part of the phrase. The board read: _ _ _ _ /I _ /T _ E /B _ _ T!

Tavaris took a look at the game board, quickly buzzing in that he had the answer.

“Right in the butt,” he said with confidence, until fellow contestant Tyra, on the opposite side of the stage, audibly expressed her bewilderment. The audience collectively guffawed at the awkward moment.

“What?” she said. The camera then panned to Tavaris, who looked like a deer in headlights.

“No,” host Pat Sajak said, definitively.

The correct answer, which contestant Beth guessed, was “T H I S / I S / T H E / B E S T !”

Social media was flooded with reactions to the X-rated flub, with several popular accounts sharing the moment with their followers. People had a field day with the raunchiness of the guess.

The show also shared the hilarious clip on their official Instagram page, eliciting even more reactions.
