(CNN) - A “Wheel of fortune” contestant is getting a new car despite failing to win one due to a technicality.
Audi says it’s giving Charlene Rubush a Q3, a luxury SUV with a starting price around $35,000.
Rubush almost got one as a prize on the show, but she paused too long while answering a puzzle.
Criticism of the loss poured in on Twitter.
A spokesperson for Audi said, technicality or not, it wants to give Rubush some holiday cheer.
