The show’s administration literally had to put a cap on winnings!
Well, according to the source, this is Drew Carey’s 10th season hosting the show. And since this is the case, anyone who landed on $1.00 would get $10,000.
The last three contestants went to the wheel for the spin. That’s when the TURN UP happened!
The first contestant got $1.00…then the second one…then the third one!
ALTHOUGH THIS WAS INCREDIBLE, THEY WEREN’T FINISHED!
“All three got to spin one more time and wouldn’t you know it, the first two landed on $1.00 AGAIN meaning they each got another $25,000,” as reports KENS-5.
Exactly! Absolutely crazy.
The source reports as follows.
At this point the audience, contestants, and Drew Carey are losing it. $80,000 in a matter of minutes.
Unfortunately for the third contestant, he didn’t luck up on another $1.00.

But, he did leave with an extra $10,000 in his pocket — plus the prizes he won before the Big Wheel.
The last two contestants, who already won $35,000, had to head back to the wheel once more.

Before the spin, Drew asked if they would get more money if they hit $1.00 again.
Administration swiftly said that particular spin was only for the high-value placement determining who would proceed to the Showcase Showdown.
The second contestant was the winner and advanced with an extra $35,000 in her pocket.
