Wheel of Fortune culminates in a tie for the first time in a decade

Posted on

Wheel of Fortune

For the first time in more than 10 years, Wheel of Fortune spun right into a tie.

Wednesday’s episode of the word-guessing game show marked a rare instance of two contestants — LaToya Williams and Danielle Gilseth — racking up equal winnings going into the bonus round, to the tune of $24,000 each.

The last time the show witnessed such a stalemate was March 2, 2006.

The draw didn’t last long, however, as host Pat Sajak quickly segued into a Toss-Up tiebreaker, the winner of which would proceed to the bonus round.

Watch the video above to see who prevailed.
