Wheel of Fortune contestant Kevin was set up nicely to guess a hidden phrase on Tuesday night’s edition of the game show:

A Streetcar Na_ed Desire

Seems easy enough, right? Well, Kevin did not guess an “m”:

A Streetcar Naked Desire?! Come on, Kevin! Maybe on a Cinemax game show, not on ABC. The collective groan from the crowd said it all.

The answer is based on a 1947 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tennessee Williams, titled (obviously, except to Kevin) A Streetcar Named Desire.

And Pat Sajak quipped that while contestant Lisa got the answer right, he’d “rather see Kevin’s play”:

Fair enough.
