That word JUBILANT in tonight's Bonus Land puzzle...strikes down another contestant.   That is a tough word.


Is it really true that there is a $75,000 envelope in the civilian version of Wheel?

If it is, then it's a new addition for 2023-2024, since I'd always heard that the next-highest thing after $100K has always been $50K.

Budget mode my butt! It's the producer/showrunner Bellamie Blackstone. She's basically a female Harry Friedman. If Sony was wise,not only would this be Pat's final season but also Wheel's final season. It's never been the same since Charlie O'Donnell passed away in 2010 and after that,Harry Friedman ran it into the ground. I stopped watching after Season 30.

If true,I'll bet ya dollars to donuts it'll be lost on it's first landing.

Here's hoping a Million Dollar Winner will be crowned before Sajak completes the season...

I wouldn't know about that. She's shown some promise since starting last season (such as the LIDAR puzzleboard, as well as finally ending the BR minimum), and I'm pretty sure Pat's retirement would allow her to implement more positive changes going forward. And why would Sony can a successful, long-running show?

Not to mention using four consecutive posts to give your two cents...

So expressing how I disagreed with your opinion in a civil manner is delusional how, exactly?

He's a troll. Don't waste your time.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

It was right in front of her and she did not see it. She also lost $100,000 which would have been the $1,000,000 had she claimed the wedge in the third round. OUCH.
