ZONK ANSWERS OF THE WEEK: Both of these were committed by Kevin Gunn on "Wheel of Fortune" last Wednesday night. The first came on the second Toss-Up, when he thought for some reason Greg Kinnear was a news person by guessing ANCHOR GREG KINNEAR (answer was ACTOR GREG KINNEAR). The second time, during the Mystery Round, he was paying no attention to the top word and messed up with INSPECTOR GENERAL ADMISSION (answer was ATTORNEY GENERAL ADMISSION). He settled for $6,700 after all that.
