Greatest number elected to spin again in SCSD?
« on: August 18, 2020, 05:55:07 PM »
What is the greatest number that the first or second spinner has had in their first spin of a Showcase Showdown and willingly elected to spin the Big Wheel a second time?

If I had to guess 75 cents.....which twice actually led to the contestant getting a quarter to reach a dollar on the subsequent spin believe it or not.

Wasn't there a guy who spun again on a high number, went over, then said he didn't know that he couldn't go over and Bob was like, "Sorry, but we explained that to you"?

June 13th, 1997: Keven spins again on a 75 and goes over, claiming he didn't know he couldn't go over 1.00. Bob described the rules before everyone spun.

May 7, 1996: Larry spins again on a 75 with the prior spinner having gone over, gets 25 in his second spin and wins $1,000. I believe there were one or two other occasions of this or similar happening.

25th Season finale too, which had another interesting situation pop up in addition to this one....which I'll open a new thread on so as not to derail this one.

Wasn't there an instance where the third spinner spun a relatively high number which would have made him the winner over the current leader, but he insisted on spinning again because he wanted to try for the dollar?
