    Not me silly! I wish.

    My niece from Sturgeon Bay Wisc. just won $120,000
    PLUS a trip to Greece
    PLUS a trip to Hawaii


    We knew she won something but had no idea how much.
    She was sworn to secrecy til the show aired.
    So the whole family watched tonight waiting to find out.

    She was interviewed by her local newspaper and all she would say was
    "well it was at least enough to cover my trip to LA."

    She had never been on a plane before. Now she's going on some REALLY long trips.

    She's a single Mom, so what a windfall this is for her.

    Anyway, super cool! Just thought I'd share.

    That is so cool! I am a big Wheel of Fortune fan, but I don't know if I could do it with all those cameras around.

    Exciting!

    Yep very cool!

    I figured she won around 20K. For a single MOM working her way through college as a bartender 20K is still HUGE. But 120K plus 2 big trips is
    GYNORMOUS!

    Wow! Linda, this is some awesome news.

    Congratulations to your niece. How was the show? More importantly, how did everyone react while watching your niece on TV?

    Hey Michael, good to see you posting again.

    Teli, most of the family is back in Wisconsin. She works at a bar so there was a huge party at the bar and all her friends and the family went there to watch. I hear things got pretty crazy. :p

    I think she also had lots of OLD friends come out of the wood work wanting to become her new BEST friends. :eek:

    In her own words - Linda's niece tells her story

    Linda has told us about her niece being on <i>Wheel of Fortune</i> and being a big winner. She won $122,500. That is the most ever won by a player on Wheel of Fortune in one day since the show began in 1983.

    5 Star members have been interested in this. The very best possible thing would be to read what Linda's niece had to say about <i>Wheel of Fortune</i>, so here it is, in her own words:
    I don't know how long the link that contains the above will remain active, so I decided to post it above just to be sure.

    If you want to see a picture of Linda's niece, here is a link with it which also has everything that I quoted above http://www.sonypictures.com/tv/shows/wheel/contestant_diary.php?archiveID=69
