Originally, contestants who won rounds used their cash in the shopping round to buy prizes. That was changed in 1987 to the now familiar concept of contestants building a cash bank during the "Month of Cash". "Month of Cash" was originally supposed to be only a month long but became a permanent change replacing shopping. See more »

Wow. Wheel is most likely the best game show on television, right next to Jeopardy! I especially love all the moments with schmucks incorrectly solving puzzles and then winning the bonus round...
My only peeve is that the bonus puzzles are getting WAY too hard. I saw one recently that was A BUSYBODY. Unless you have a hunch and guess B and Y, there is NO WAY you'll be able to solve this puzzle!
