One lucky guy from Augusta won big on Wheel of Fortune...guess what he's doing with the money? He's saving it! Smart!!!
The Augusta Chronicle tells us more about how he applied for the show and actually got the audition.
What started off as a joke ended with over $20,000 in winnings for an Augusta game show contestant.
Jason Leary won the money on "Wheel of Fortune" in an episode that aired Friday night as the show's 7,000th episode.
He initially didn't think he would make it on the show after doing an online video submission, Leary said.
"I kind of did it as a joke," he said. "I was just joking around with my wife and my mom, and a few months later I got an email inviting me to audition in Myrtle Beach."
So what was a joke turned into over $20,000... Not too shabby my friend!
