A Wheel of Fortune contestant landed herself in the show's hall of shame last week after she was unable to explain what "CRM" stands for, despite it being in her job title.
Kat Bracknell, who was introduced by Pat Sajak as "a marketing executive and CRM manager" seemed prepared to talk about the company she works for, describing it as "a health and wellness startup company based in Atlanta [that offers] a wide range of products. It's just holistic living, trying to get people off medications, and just live a more natural life."
Where she got into trouble was when Sajak asked her what the "CRM" in her job title stands for. "CRM? Oh god, don't test me on that." Down went Kat's house of cards, as she quickly dismissed her highfalutin job title, saying "it's just reporting and IT stuff."
Cue the Twittersphere:

You don't know what CRM stands for and it's part of your job? Hopefully you win a lot tonight because you are so fired!#WheelOfFortune
Dear Brand, please come get this woman who manages CRM and has no idea what it is. #WheelOfFortune— Karen Swim, APR (@KarenSwim) November 18, 2021
How does this broad not know what her own job means @ not knowing what CRM stands for?— Miss C (@xsongbird710) November 18, 2021
She went to Vaseline University, just slid on through #WheelOfFortune
For the record, the "CRM" in Kat's job title refers to "Customer Relationship Management," and hey Kat, we've all been there.
