Contestant loses $7,100 in embarrassing 'Wheel of Fortune' gaffe 

You’ve got to pronounce it properly to win.

>> Read more trending news

A “Wheel of Fortune” contestant named Jonny lost a shot at $7,100 and a trip to Spain because he mispronounced a word, WGN reported.

Jonny correctly guessed the final letters in a puzzle that read “Flamenco Dance Lessons.” All he had to do was say the phrase that pays.

But Jonny said, “Flamingo Dance Lessons,” which meant that host Pat Sajak had to hit the buzzer and tell the disbelieving man that his answer was incorrect, WGN reported.

Sajak then handed the question off to another contestant, Ashley, who read the phrase correctly and won the prize, WGN reported.

Jonny was just having a bad day.

Earlier in the game, he landed on the $2,500 space and was two letters from solving the puzzle: “Dog and Pony Show Me the Money.” The only letters missing were “g” and “p.”

Jonny guessed “c.”

Rousey teamed with Kurt Angle to defeat Paul “Triple H” Levesque and Stephanie McMahon as 78,133 fans at the Superdome roared their approval, ESPN reported.

“That's, like, the biggest stadium I've ever performed in front of,” Rousey said. “It's, like, the size of four fights."

Rousey signed a contract with the WWE two months ago and went from bouts in the octagon to the scripted matches of pro wrestling.

The Superdome crowd yelled her name from the start of the match, and then broke into “This is awesome” chants as the bout reached its climax, ESPN reported.

"I underestimated how kind the WWE universe would be," Rousey said in an interview with ESPN. "I thought any outsiders would be shunned. I was expecting to get shunned and to have to battle to be accepted. I worked my ass off to pay respect to what's so important to them, and hopefully they saw that tonight."

UFC president Dana White, who watched from ringside, told ESPN that he was happy for Rousey, saying she acted as a pioneer for women in mixed-martial arts,

"She accomplished everything she could at UFC," White said. "She has a title defense record that still isn't broken

“She has always loved professional wrestling, and now she gets to have a blast being a part of it. She will be great at anything she sets her mind to doing. I thought she was incredible tonight.”

In the main event, Brock Lesnar defended his WWE Universal Championship title by pinning Roman Reigns. AJ Styles pinned Shinsuke Nakamura to retain the WWE Championship, while Nia Jax pinned Alexa Bliss to take the Raw Women’s Championship. The Undertaker pinned John Cena, while the Bludgeon Brothers beat The New Day and The Usos to win the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. Charlotte Flair retained her SmackDown Women’s Championship by defeating Asuka via submission.

In the inaugural WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, Naomi eliminated Bailey for the victory.

The event was the biggest payday in Superdome history, the Times-Picayune reported.

According to the WWE, this year’s event grossed $14.1 million, topping the Superdome’s previous record of $10.9 million set by WrestleMania 30 in 2014.

'The Wire's' David Simon developing series set during Spanish Civil War

David Simon, creator of “The Wire,” is developing a miniseries set during the Spanish Civil War, Variety reported.

>> Read more trending news

“A Dry Run” will be a dramatic series that follows members of the Abraham Lincoln Battalion, a unit that came to Spain from the United States to fight against fascism during the Spanish Civil War. That conflict has been seen as a dry run for Adolf Hitler’s Nazi armies, who participated in the conflict and gained experience that would prove valuable during World War II.

Simon, whose current show “The Deuce” is on HBO, is collaborating with Mediapro, a multimedia communications group in Spain, Variety reported.

Initially, creators envision the show as a six-hour miniseries, but that could change, Mediapro founder Jaume Roures told Variety.

“A Dry Run” offers a “compelling and tragic narrative,” Simon told Variety, adding that the “Spanish struggle against fascism and the misuse of capitalism as a bulwark to totalitarianism” represent “the preeminent political narrative of the 20th century.”

Spirit Halloween is recalling more than 20,000 of the toy hats due to fire and burn hazards.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ordered the recall on Thursday. So far, there have been four reports of the toy overheating, but no injuries have been reported, according to the commission’s website.

The affected hats are red with a yellow ribbon, have black and white spotted dog ears, and a black flashlight attached to the side.

Only flashlights with the SKU number 01292093 and date codes 1703RY01, 1603RY01 and 1503RY01 are involved in the recall, WABC reported.

The SKU number and date codes are sewn in the label under the ear on the hat.

To receive a full refund, consumers should take the hats away from children, remove the batteries, dispose of the flashlight, take a photo of the tag and contact Spirit Halloween, the commission said on its website.

Heineken pulls ‘Sometimes lighter is better’ ad after racism claims

Heineken officials have removed an ad with the tagline “Sometimes lighter is better” after the 30-second spot was criticized as being racist, CNN reported.

> Read more trending news

The ad features a fair-skinned bartender sliding a bottle of Heineken Light to a woman. The bottle slides past three black people before arriving in front of the lighter-skinned woman as the tagline appears at the end of the commercial.

Critics on social media did not treat the ad lightly. Hip-hop singer Chance the Rapper called it "terribly racist" on Twitter on Sunday evening.

“I think some companies are purposely putting out noticeably racist ads so they can get more views,” he tweeted.

On Twitter, Helen Ehrenofer called for the firing of the person who allowed the ad to air.

"What idiots do they have approving this ad? Fire that person," she tweeted.

Heineken pulled the ad from television and the internet late Monday, CNN reported.

“While we feel the ad is referencing our Heineken Light beer, and that light beer is better than other high-calorie options -- we missed the mark, are taking the feedback to heart and will use this to influence future campaigns," Heineken USA spokesman Bjorn Trowery said.
