Wheel of Fortune was in the Halloween spirit by featuring a puzzle in the "Movie Quote" category, inspired by the horror movie Candyman:
Jordan Costa filled in the missing Y and M, completing the phrase and saying the word “Candyman” four times, winning $25,800 in total earnings.
Host Pat Sajak states:
“That, by the way, for those of you that don’t know is from a film called Candyman. And I said it a fifth time which means he appears. Isn’t that the way it works?”
Wheel of Fortune fans took to Twitter after watching the segment:
“Wheel of Fortune is playing a dangerous game tonight.”
“Like they had him say Candyman x4. Wheel of Fortune y’all wild!!!”
“Wheel of Fortune just had ‘Candyman Candyman Candyman’ as their phrase and that is pure evil.”
“Why are we summoning #candyman by making contestants say his name repeatedly? I was waiting for him to bust out of the letters and get Vanna @WheelofFortune."
