It just kept getting better

So, they finally got to this (in "On The Map"): A_CKLAND NEW ZEALAND.

One of them guessed "Ackland" but Pat didn't let her have it. He pointed out that the missing letter was a vowel. The guy visibly wavered between I and U, and guessed U. Then he said, tentatively, "Auckland, New Zealand?"

Pat said yes, and the women both made faces and shrugged with their hands up. The guy said, audibly, "Can't say I ever heard of it."

And then Pat said: It's the capital.

(After the commercial Pat alerted us to the sudden political change in New Zealand...)

(And in fairness, my browser's spellchecker doesn't even know the word "Zealand"!!!)

What a pathetic performance by all three of tonight's contestants! At least Sajak corrected HIS error with grace and wit.
