BREAKING NEWS: Autumn Erhard Becomes Second Millionaire on "Wheel of Fortune"

I can’t think of a better way for a game show to celebrate a milestone occasion, such as Wheel of Fortune's 30th anniversary in syndication, than to give away a ton of cash; specifically, $1 million in cash. Autumn Erhard, from Laguna Niguel, CA, became the show's second million-dollar winner on Thursday’s show after she solved “TOUGH WORKOUT” in the bonus round, a very difficult puzzle to solve considering she was only given two T's, a G and an R scattered across the puzzleboard to work with. Thirty year-old Erhard is now the show’s biggest winner, winning a total of $1,030,340 in cash and prizes including a trip to Arizona and Belize. 

Check out Amelia's million-dollar moment in the video below:

It’s been five years since the show has given away the elusive top prize. In 2008, Michelle Loewenstein, from Los Angeles, CA, was the first million-dollar winner on Wheel of Fortune. “LEAKY FAUCET” was her winning puzzle; albeit, she was provided with a little more help than Erhard was given. Relive the moment in the clip below and congratulations to Autumn Erhard for her incredible win!
