Montana Does Well At Wheel
On most nights, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy get watched at my house. I suck a Jeopardy and Ross (the history major) is good at it, and I suck a little less at Wheel of Fortune (but usually beat him, barely). Tuesday night a man from Montana won 25,000 in one round, ending up the big winner! I did some research, and it turns out Montana is on a winning streak when it comes to the game!
MISSOULA – A Missoula man had a great time on Wheel of Fortune Wednesday night and sent a shout out back to his home town.
Ken DeYoung solved one of the last puzzles of the night and went home with about $4,000. While he wasn’t the big winner, he was very enthusiastic and exciting to watch.
He’s just the latest in a string on Western Montana residents to appear on the popular show.
Dillon teacher Sharmayne MacEwan appeared earlier this month and brought home over $24,000.
Missoula’s Greg Patent was on Wheel of Fortune back in December and took home more than $15,000 in cash and prizes, including a trip to exotic Antigua.
Last October, Mandie Fleming of Whitefish had the chance to spin for cash after auditioning for the show after the WheelMobile made a stop at the Missoula County Fairgrounds last year.
