There's something about members of the
armed forces and "Wheel of Fortune" that just lends itself to articles
like the one you're about to read. I don't know if it's the bright
lights, the cameras or what, but on an almost annual occurrence some of
America's finest become America's dumbest on this classic game show.
Our newest case study involves Anna &
Jonny who have amassed $2,000 from a Toss Up to this point.
Put down that VHS copy of "G.I. Jane",
Pat. It IS a prize puzzle, and here it is.
Makeeka & Darren, on the far left,
relinquished control after not being able to find a T. Greg & Glenn had
success in putting letters on the board, but eventually they hit
Bankrupt, and control passed to Anna & Jonny. Here's what the puzzle
looks like when they take control of the wheel.
Anna & Jonny would end up winning
$5,000 so they didn't have a bad day, but oh what the day could have
been. Had they solved the puzzle with the money they accumulated in that
prize puzzle, they would have been the night's big winners. Instead,
thanks mostly to Anna, they become the latest military personnel to win
the Dumb Answer of the Week.
