A Wheel of Fortune question (and season 37 starts tomorrow!)
« on: September 08, 2019, 10:41:59 PM »
I am very excited that Wheel of Fortune season 37 starts tomorrow, and we all know that the minimum cash prize on the Bonus Round wheel will be $37,000.

Ever since season 35, the winning contestant chooses one of 3 categories for their bonus round puzzle before they go to Bonus Land.  I gotta wonder for those categories that go unused for that particular bonus round with that particular puzzle, I wonder if when they bring up those categories again for future shows before the bonus round is it the same puzzle that was not used for that previous show?  (I know weird question)

I don't know if there is an official answer, but I always assumed they were either retooled for the BR for later weeks, or sometimes used as Toss-Ups or Speed-Ups.
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

HYO total winnings: $69,829
