How do you pronounce this word?

How do you pronounce this word?
I was watching a show and the way it was pronounced by two characters made my head spin.

The word is disheveled.

Do you pronounce it:

1. di-chev-uled
2. dis-hev-uled

 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Figures.

I pronounce it the second way.

Well, OK, if you prefer a nice tomahto bisque. It's actually "dischevelled".

There was a "1" there before. Thankfully, Tibs added that new thing where your original unedited post saved in a database can convey that I'm not crazy.

Dishevelled.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

I pronounce it dis-shev-uled, personally. Then again, as someone who managed to learn to speak largely by watching television, from programs from areas whose approaches to the English language varied wildly (with a remarkable mix between American shows, British shows, and British shows dubbed for American audiences for some reason), and sometimes, I'd end up with pronunciations that nobody uses, I might not be the default source for pronunciations.

I pronounce it dih-shev-ulled.

I know that makes zero sense and it's an incorrect pronunciation but that's how I pronounce it.
