In this game show, contestants answer trivia questions and then compete in a timed race through the supermarket. The team that has the most valuable items in their shopping cart at the end of the race wins.
Pat Sajak hosts this game show, where contestants guess letters in mystery words and phrases. They win prizes based on results of spinning a wheel and guessing correctly to solve the mystery. Vanna White stars as the 'letter-turner.' Written by

Merv Griffin hatched the idea for "Wheel of Fortune" as a child. During a long family car trip in the summer, he played Hangman with his sister Barbara in the backseat. Years later, he would take the idea and turned it into a game show. See more »

A big wheel, Lots of Prizes, Music....Oh, where does the time go?
I love wheel of fortune. It's arguably the best gameshow on TV and you have to have seen it at least once or twice.
The game is played as follows; 3 people are standing at a wheel with various dollar values on wedges, and they have to solve a puzzle by guessing letters with every spin of the wheel. whoever guesses the puzzle at the end of the game, wins the cash they've accumulated throughout.
Now for my 2 cents on the show. First off, I Love Vanna White. 56 years old and she outclasses just about any modern model, celebrity, singer, whatever. She'll be 70-something before she quits spinning letters.
But for Pat Sajak, he's a totally lovable guy, but he really looks like he doesn't care anymore. He's been doing the show for 30+ years, But now he just looks bored. But if Pat Sajak goes, Vanna would get lonely and eventually quit too.
Bottom line, I suggest you watch Wheel of fortune, If you like watching people play hangman for cash, you won't be disappointed.
