LOS ANGELES –- For only the second time in the show’s history, someone has won the $1 million prize on Wheel of Fortune.
On Thursday night’s broadcast, Autumn Erhard, 30, won the grand prize on a very difficult puzzle in which she only had a couple of letters to work off of.
It even had Pat Sajak wondering how she solved it.
Erhard led the other contestants throughout he show and took a Wild Card with her to the bonus round. The final phrase she had to guess: “Tough Workout.”
Erhard was “in completed and utter shock.” “I’m shaking. I came here today because I love the game, I wanted to have some fun and solve some puzzles – I feel like I’m in a dream!” she said.
Her fiancé and parents joined her on the set.
The million-dollar prize has only been part of the show for the last few years. The first time it was won was in 2008.
