The category was Fun & Games.
All the letters were eventually revealed. The puzzle read: 'Flamenco Dance Lessons.'
But contestant Jonny Knowles still couldn't get it right.
Instead of 'Flamenco,' Knowles said 'Flamingo.'
Knowles, who is from North Carolina, admits he just messed up.
"I was nervous. I've never been on national TV before. It was crazy. A slip of the tongue, literally," Knowles said.
The contestant next to him did pronounce the puzzle right.
If Knowles correctly said the puzzle, he would have won $7,100 and a trip to Spain.
