A recent episode of Wheel of Fortune proved it's not WHAT you say, but HOW you say it that pays. Unfortunately for contestant Paul Atkinson, he learned that the hard way.

The beer brewer from Oregon competed on the game show Tuesday night. He spun the wheel and grabbed the $1 million placard and attempted to solve the puzzle.

The answer was "Corner curio cabinet." But, Atkinson said "Corner curo cabinet." Because he mispronounced the answer, he was buzzed "incorrect." The next contestant said it correctly.
