“Wheel of Fortune” Celebrates 30 Years with Big Money This Week

I try to keep you as spoiler free as possible while still letting you know when something of note will happen.  This is one of those times, so fair warning if you want to not know a single thing.  This week, Wheel of Fortune is celebrating 30 years on air.  Back from New York City, Pat Sajak and Vanna White are ready to give away big money.

Discussion of spoilers below.  Again, fair warning.

It’s been close to five years since someone has won the million dollar special top prize on Wheel of Fortune.  Only one person has even landed on the space after carrying it through to the bonus round, and she ended up winning it.  Some not-so-subtle hints from the show reveal it’s probably going to happen again.  When?  They aren’t saying and, frankly, I don’t even know.  However, watch all week so you won’t miss it.  Check out the teaser below.

    I know what day it was scheduled for (I saw several social media posts from people who work for the show the day it taped back in February), but if the contestant at 0:22 in the video is the same one on wheeloffortune.com’s contestant blog, then they moved it to the day listed there.

    • MarioGS says:

      Update: Yes, it was swapped. The Vanna Style website has the original day’s dress as the same one in the clip where Pat and Vanna ask “What’s your 30?” and there’s no you-know-what on the floor. It’s got to be the episode with the website’s featured contestant.

      • Andrew Schroy says:

        If it turns out that the contestant won only $100,000, it’d be kinda “meh”. If it’s a million, that might be more interesting. Given how WOF has pulled a stunt like that so many times…

      • Doan says:

        It is the contestant on the website

  • Lee Hubbard says:

    I was hoping GSN would get in on the 30th anniversary by showing a Wheel marathon.

  • John says:

    Does this mean that Wheel of Fortune will change their open schematic or change the picture (like the picture of wheel of fortune that you have)?

  • Andrew Schroy says:

    Best part of the clip? “30 years ago, I had a 30-inch waist.” XD

  • Justin H says:

    It’s about time, really… I don’t mind seeing the spoiler, especially after watching the disappointment of The Price Is Right’s Big Money Week…

  • Maddison says:

    These are actually great ideas in about blogging. You have touched some good points here.

    Any way keep up wrinting.
