Wheel of Fortune Recap Part Three

(Read Part One and Part Two)

So did you all watch our episode last night?!?!?!?!?

If not–or if you want to see it again!–you can check it out here and here.

It was incredibly interesting to see how our memories of the taping reconciled with the actual show.  And now we know how celebrities feel when they say they can’t stand watching themselves on TV!  Hearing your own voice is incredibly weird, and Sizzlemaker clapped really awkwardly.  Plus, we’re pretty sure the camera really did add 20 pounds!

As you could see, we only got to spin about 5 times.  There was a streak where Sizzlemaker got a few letters in a row but unfortunately it didn’t last.  Turns were lost when we guessed S and T–two of the most common letters–and they weren’t in the puzzle.  Furthermore, we knew the answers but it was never our turn to solve.

Scott earned most of his money by winning two trips.  While we didn’t really care about the San Francisco one, we were dying to win the one to Mexico!  In the first round we picked up a Marie Callendars prize but we didn’t get to keep it since we didn’t solve the puzzle.  (And to be honest, we don’t even know what Marie Callendars is!)

Our winnings, a whopping $1,300, came solely from solving the last puzzle, an opportunity that was really just a matter of luck.  The game is really about the order of turns and benefiting from the letters guessed by the other contestants.  And with the way it played out in this particular case, Scott and Jennifer ended up getting the advantage.

The puzzle in the bonus round was extremely difficult and probably extremely disappointing for Scott.  He came so close to winning an additional $100,000!  Still, he walked away with more than $20,000.

So our Wheel of Fortune adventure has come to its conclusion.  It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we’d love to relive–and change a bit!  But we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity and will have the memory to take with us for the rest of our lives.
