Yesterday on the Wheel of Fortune
It’s Show You the World Week on Wheel of Fortune and we’re posting the Bonus Puzzle with the winner’s final prize amount. By way of comparison, the Jeopardy! payoff is also included with a link to the recap of that game.
Thu 10-19-17 Wheel: $28,198
On Jeopardy: $16,601
Donna Freeman picked up 3 instances of her vowel O. In the consonant department, she only got a C, but it was the first letter of the first word. She instantly knew the last word, but just got nowhere with the first in her allotted 10 seconds. That $35,000 card has been a jinx almost all week!
Mon 10-16-17 Wheel: $18,748
On Jeopardy: $25,599
Ashley Harvey got two Ps from her consonants and that gave her the second word. Her vowel (O) was in the first word but it was the only letter there, leaving too many possibilities to work it out in 10 seconds. She didn’t win the $35,000 on the card.
Tue 10-17-17 Wheel: $61,748
On Jeopardy: $1.00 (for real)
Nadean Nichols picked two good consonants (M and C), adding one to each word. Her vowel choice (A) made solving the puzzle a breeze. She added $35,000 to the $26,748 she racked up in the main game.
Wed 10-18-17 Wheel: $22,498
On Jeopardy: $9,999
Paul Marcucilli totally filled in his first word with the letters P, H and O. Somehow that last word just wouldn’t come forth in the sounding out process so the $35,000 on his card stayed in show’s coffers.
