Yesterday on the Wheel of Fortune
This week (8-7 to 8-11-17), Wheel of Fortune is re-running Chicago week from Season 34 (5-15 to 5-19-17). All the bonus puzzles from that week are on this post.
Here’s the bonus puzzle from Friday, July 28, 2017 on Wheel of Fortune. This week, Wheel is showing the matches from Teachers Week (Sept 2016).
Wheel is currently showing re-runs. We are comparing the scores to the Jeopardy! win from the original air date.
Fri 7-28-17 Wheel: $17,020 + $0
(orig. air date 9-16-16) On Jeopardy: $6,534
Jocelyn Coltrin got a C and two As from her letter picks but she just could not sound it out within the time limit. So she lost out on the prize on the card she picked– a Ford Escape.
Mon 7-25-17 Wheel: $31,700 + $0
(orig. air date 9-12-16) On Jeopardy: $21,100
Matt McMahan got a P and one I out of picks, but it wasn’t much help to him. Out of the double letters in the puzzle, perhaps the H would have been the biggest help. He missed out on an extra $34,000 but as Pat pointed out, he already won close to that amount. Note: This was the 2016 season debut for both WoF and Jeopardy!
Tue 7-25-17 Wheel: $17,740 + $30,140 (car)
(orig. air date 9-13-16) On Jeopardy: $3,339
Nick Liguori couldn’t have picked a better set of letters. He could just read the solution off and he did. He won a ’17 Escape Titanium worth $30,140. That gave him 2 cars since he also won a Fiesta in the main game! Total overall: $47,880.
Wed 7-26-17 Wheel: $43,960 + $40,000
(orig. air date 9-14-16) On Jeopardy: $28,001
Jade Greene-Grant only got an M an A from her picks. That gave her the last word and she kept working on that first one until she nailed it. She didn’t pick the million out of the wheel but she won an extra $40,000. Grand Total: $83,960.
Thu 7-27-17 Wheel: $18,603 + $30,140 (car)
(orig. air date 9-15-16) On Jeopardy: $21,601
Daren Pennix had a Wild Card but only got one consonant out of his picks. That was okay because those four O’s did the trick and he supplied the solution before the clock even started. He won an Escape Titanium worth $30,140, bringing him up to $48,743 in cash and prizes.
