$100,000 Finally Spun (Then Lost) on Wheel of Fortune

It’s been a weird season of Wheel of Fortune.

Wheel of Fortune had some staggeringly early solvesstaggeringly poor guesses, and staggeringly memorable contestants this season.

The one weird thing about Wheel‘s 31st season is that the $100,000 prize—hidden in one of the 24 bonus round envelopes on the bonus wheel—has not been won. Even more so, it’s not even been landed on.  It finally happened on Friday.

Carol Tom from California somehow became the first person to spin the $100,000 envelope on Friday’s edition of Wheel of Fortune.  She wasn’t lucky with her Bonus Round letters pick, and she couldn’t pull a miracle solve this time.

The wait is pretty shocking because there’s only a week or two left in the season.  With last season’s decent amount of big wins, topped off by the show’s second million dollar winner, it’s unique to see such a huge drought in big money.  We’ll see what happens over the next two weeks.  Will someone finally break six figures?

    I sure hope that someone does break through and win. Like you said, the drop in big wins is staggering, and I feel it’s led to a lot of this season being meh. I just don’t feel, in my gut, that it will happen. Few of the players inspire confidence nowadays. I sure hope I’m proven wrong, though.

  • aaaa

    three weeks left in the season, season ends on 6/13.

  • Kevin Solomon

    But I will say…. all of the interesting things that have happened this season has still made it, IMO, a good season. Now, if there’s no winners NEXT season AND NO interesting moments at all, then that would suck!

  • Darryl Heine

    I think next season there should be 2 $100,000 cards instead of 1 for the BONUS ROUND (And if the MILLION DOLLAR WEDGE is won by a contestant replace one of the $100,000 with the ONE MILLION but keep the other $100,000).

    Now that’s a good goddamn idea!

  • Shaun Shaffer

    Are you fucking high?! This shitbomb of a season has had no moments worth a damn except for the debut of the Express wedge. I liked it when if first came but now people are fucking up too goddamn much when they hop aboard. The Jackpot need to come back.

  • Shaun Shaffer

    You are fucking stupid.

  • pacdude

    Shaun,

    I’ve disemvowelled your sentence for a few reasons:

    1) It’s not cool to call anyone “retarded,” especially because just a few weeks ago, Wheel showcased a special-needs contestant.
    2) You’ve made claims that you cannot prove, are factually inaccurate or otherwise lies.
    3) You swore.
    4) None of the comments you made were constructive toward stimulating discussion.

    We’re leaving the comment up but it’s disemvoweled. If you continue to conduct yourself in a manner not generally considered polite or mature, we’ll be forced to blacklist you from the site.

  • pacdude

    Please do not swear.

  • Shaun Shaffer

    YOU GODDAMN JEW! I WILL SAY WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT AND EVERYTHING i HAVE SAID IS THE GODDAMN TRUTH!

  • Shaun Shaffer

    FUCK OFF!

  • Shaun Shaffer

    GODDAMN YOU,IF YOU EDIT MY COMMENTS ONE MORE GODDAMN TIME,YOU WILL BE TROLLED LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TROLLED BEFORE!

  • Shaun Shaffer

    AND BY THE WAY,I KNOW THAT WHEEL HAD A SPECIAL-NEEDS CONTESTANT A FEW WEEKS BACK. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SHOVE IT DOWN MY THROAT,YOU JACKASS!

  • David Downs

    Unfortunately, it’s futile to reason with him. Shaun does the same thing everywhere (cursing, calling people stupid, insulting religions) because he enjoys it. It’s probably best to remove him completely.

  • pacdude

    We’ve done so. Also, we have a new Comments Policy page to give everyone the same guidelines on how to talk like a human being on the internet.

  • Carl Chenier

    Yeah he’s gone after everyone.

  • Ernest Goodwyn

    Completely disagree. This has been one of the best seasons of the show in recent memory. There have been so many memorable moments including the ones mentioned in the article and the dude who solved ROBIN WILLIAMS AS MRS. DOUBTFIRE with just the R’s showing. Yeah it would be nice to give away some huge money but luckily Wheel’s not like Millionaire in the sense that the show is still fun to watch even if no one wins big.

  • David Downs

    I respect your opinion. That’s the beauty of debate; there’s no single answer to anything. That said, there just seemed to be more baloney than filet to me. Admittedly, my view is jaded because I personally don’t care much for Sony (long story), but beyond the moments linked to above, I am just not impressed.

  • Jon Mann

    He should be brought to justice and take his internet privileges away.

  • Travis Eberle

    Lots of staggering this year. I thought it was Wheel of Fortune and not Wipeout.
