‘Wheel Of Fortune’ Crowns $1 Million Winner [VIDEO]
For just the second time in the show’s history, a contestant won a million dollars on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ — and you won’t believe how she did it.
She’s Autumn Erhard of Laguna Niguel, Calif., and she was on the show in the first place because the show is celebrating its 30th season and she’s 30 years old.
Just to be eligible to win the million dollar prize, a contestant has to land on the million-dollar wedge, solve a puzzle and reach the bonus round without ever landing on “bankrupt.” If they get that far, one of the 24 slots on the bonus round wheel is one million dollars. They have to land on that, then solve the puzzle. It was only done one time before, and that was five years ago.
When she selected the extra consonants and a vowel, Erhard was only able to add one more letter to the puzzle, but take a look at how she did. Could you have solved it?
