Sharon Adams Wins $100,000 on “Wheel of Fortune”
The syndicated game show Wheel of Fortune has gone almost the entire season without a single $100,000 winner. For a show that gives away tens of thousands of dollars for guessing the letter, “T,” that’s almost unheard of. Finally, with just weeks left, a contestant cashed in on the top regular prize the show offered. Sharon Adams, from Corpus Christi, TX, took the $100,000 top prize. She squeezed into the end game by just $300 with a final score of $10,500. She managed to solve her bonus puzzle, “Back in a Flash,” and claimed the six figure prize. Her final total was $110,500.
Here’s a look at the big moment.
As I was looking on YouTube for the clip, someone did upload something pretty strange, cool, and interesting. A contestant from 2006, pretty close to six years ago to the day, a contestant won $100,000 on the same exact puzzle. Same puzzle and same result. Weird how that worked out, isn’t it? Here’s that.
By the way, Wheel isn’t done giving away big money. I’d be sure to tune in for the next few days. You never know what will happen.
