    One word.

    That's all that cost a recent Wheel of Fortune contestant a win during a crossword round on the show — and some fans of the series aren't too happy about it.

    The technicality occurred during Wednesday's episode, according to Entertainment Weekly and Yahoo. With only two missing letters on the board, the contestant, named David, took his shot at the puzzle, under the category Catch of the Day, by saying "sole, flounder, cod and catfish."

    Unfortunately, this wasn't technically correct, because the word "and" wasn't on the board.

    Host Pat Sajak reiterated the strict rule to David before he gave his answer, telling the contestant, "Don't add anything," when he said he'd like to solve the puzzle. Another contestant, named Danielle, solved it the next turn by saying the same series of words, but without any added conjunctions.

    And even she seemed surprised when Sajak told her she'd answered correctly.

    "I thought that's what you said," she told David.

    Sajak later clarified the difference.

    "David did that thing that's so easy to do," said the host. "He added an 'and.'"

    While some Wheel of Fortune viewers appreciated this attention to detail, others suggested it was time for a rule change.

    Yeah, I agree with this rule change. I understand that game show rules often need to be quite strict (for example, Jeopardy! only allows spelling mistakes if they don't change the pronunciation) - but, I see no reason to have the 'and' rule. We knew exactly what this contestant meant!

    If you are solving a crossword clue that doesn't require an "and", are you going to put one in anyway?

    When Pat Sajak (the host) says "Don't add anything", that's the rule.
