List Rules This list is all about the fails, so vote which fails you think are the worst!

We've all cringed while watching old episodes of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (and not just because of Regis Philbin's lame jokes). One the of the risks contestants take when signing up to compete on a TV game show is that they'll make a stupid mistake, which will then be saved on film and broadcast to millions of people. And yet, the lure of lots of cash or major prizes is too much to resist.

This list of the greatest game show fails of all time, including videos of each incident for your viewing pleasure, highlights the best/worst moments in game show history. Honestly, is there anything better than a good game show blooper? There is so much potential for something to go wrong on a game show. But it's not always the contestants - sometimes the hosts and showrunners are the total knuckleheads.

This list features funny fails and bloopers from Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, The Family Feud, and other popular game shows. Vote for the videos you think are the biggest fails, and downvote the clips that didn't impress you. The funniest game show moments are the ones where people aren't trying to be funny, so also take how authentic they are into consideration when voting.
