Grandpa Suffers The Most Crushing Loss Ever On Wheel Of Fortune

Plenty of people have lost on Wheel of Fortune, but probably no one has lost as closely and as crushingly as one grandfather-granddaughter duo.
Frank and his granddaughter Laurel made it to the final round and had just run out of time when he almost got the puzzle right. The loss hurt but they took it like champs... until host Pat Sajak revealed what they could've won - one million dollars.
The crowd's reaction said it all.
Twitter had their own reactions:
Tonight on Wheel of Fortune, Laurel and Frank nearly won $1 Million in the Bonus Round. They guessed “Fried Zucchini” when the answer was “Baked Zucchini...” I feel like my man Frank did when he clasped his chest as Pat Sajak revealed their lost millionaire status opportunity. 😞— Quenton Richards (@QuentonRichards) November 16, 2017
The pair still took home some cash, which hopefully will help pay for the therapy they're going to need.
