Why Did She Pick ‘Z’? Pat Sajak Uncovers Veteran’s Touching Motive on ‘Wheel of Fortune’

“Wheel of Fortune” is not just a game show; it’s an institution in American television, airing every weekday night at 7:30 PM EST on most TV stations. The show captivates millions with its blend of word puzzles and the charismatic presence of its hosts. But during a special Veterans Week episode in November 2015, one contestant, Nura Fountano, turned an ordinary game into an unforgettable moment of camaraderie and selflessness.

The show usually features three contestants who spend the half hour spinning a gigantic wheel, solving word puzzles (while Vanna White magically reveals letters on the massive wall of TVs), and racking up cash prizes and luxury getaways.

During the show’s “Veteran Week,” one contestant left viewers and show producers alike speechless.

Nura Fountano is a U.S. Veteran who had racked up most of the money by the time they got to the game’s final round. Contestants needed to choose letters that would solve the puzzle “Following Footprints” when Fountano began acting strange.

When asked to pick a letter, the front-runner chose the letter Z.

Z!!! THE WORST POSSIBLE CHOICE!

The show’s host, Pat Sajack was visibly confused. Obviously Fountano knew how to play the game well; why would she choose such an awful letter?

As the round continued and each contestant gave their letter choices, Fountano went on to guess the letters X and Q.

She lost the round, but the cash was awarded to fellow veteran and contestant, Steve, who had won very little prize money before the start of the final round.

It turns out that Fountano, who had successfully answered most of the show’s puzzles, was trying to help Steve, her fellow brother in arms. He had started the round with only $1,600, but by the end, Steve had earned $6,400. This act of kindness underscored a profound sense of solidarity and support among the veteran contestants.

True to one of the military’s core values, Fountano put “service over self”—even though it meant she ran the risk of looking foolish.
