^technically itís a 1 in 21, since they throw out Bankrupt and Lose a Turn hits, but itís more indicative of the contestants being stronger than Pat to get into that range consistently.
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

-Drew Carey, interview with Athletic, September 16, 2020

Very good point. Adjusting to ignore Bankrupts and Lose a Turns, the average number of $5,000 spins are about 9.29, with a standard deviation of about 2.974. The new approximate probability of getting at least 11 spins in a season is 34.15%. So not as notable as last time, but still unusual.

1 in 20. Have to factor in Free Play.

The contestants may be stronger, but their relative position matters, as does whether there were any game play spins.

My bad on that one. Still had that chance when Pat was doing the Final Spin.

I wish in season 40, they updated some of the dollar amounts on the main game wheel, as well as probably adding a $75,000 envelope to the Bonus Round wheel.   (heck they did the $75,000 on the celebrity editions)

Wheel related here, but ABC has renewed Celebrity Wheel of Fortune for a third season as part of the renewals of their reality-based programing.

Celebrity Season 3 will presumably run with syndicated Season 40. I'm thinking when we get to autumn, we could put them together since one is derived from the other.
It's another Adam who is another recapper for another game show on another site.

Fan of The Price is Right since the 1990's, my early childhood...and really happy that summer break was a thing.

How else would it run? ABC ordered it for the upcoming season so of course it runs concurrent with the syndicated version.

We are close to the end of Wheel of Fortune Season 39.   

So far we have 63 wins out of 175 episodes in Bonus Land.   Since the contestants now control the final spin, the contestants hit the $5,000 space 12 times.

I believe they do 195 episodes?   If so, we only have 4 more weeks left to go.   

The categories so far that have the most Bonus Land losses, which I am not surprised at: WHAT ARE YOU DOING (27 losses) and PHRASE (26 losses)
