When Camille went on Wheel of Fortune, the contestant didn’t realize just how amazing the experience was going to be.

However, that’s exactly how it went for the winning contestant. Pat Sajak and Vanna White were along for the exciting journey. It was the celebrities spinning the wheel last week, now it is back to the original game. Fans were so happy to see a big prize won in the bonus round.

One of the most disappointing parts about Wheel of Fortune has to be when a contestant misses out on the big prize in the bonus round. To see them make it all that way and to come away without the big final puzzle is tough sometimes. Well, for Camille, it was nothing but smiles.

After getting the letters R-S-T-L-N-E and then selecting her own letters, the board was sparsely filled. Four words, the first word looked like, “That,” and she had 10 seconds to answer. Check it out for yourself in the Twitter video below.

She was given 10 seconds but she only needed a couple. Camille answered the puzzle “That Would Be Amazing,” and earned herself $45,000 on top of her other winnings. Whenever you watch these videos, it is clear that Sajak loves flipping those envelopes open and showing folks how much they have won. In total, Camille walked away with over $65k in cash and prizes.

If you can make it to the end of the show to the bonus round, Wheel of Fortune has a great hourly rate of pay. Just half an hour’s work and contestants find themselves with some fuller pockets as they leave the studio. Last week celebrities took over the show.

Two Anthonys Charm on Wheel of Fortune

One of the best parts about Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is seeing celebs have a good time playing the game. On a recent episode, Anthony Anderson of black-ish and NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns competed for charity. The two were both charming and fans had a great time watching.

Throughout the game, Anthony Anderson was cracking jokes, making outbursts, and just making everyone on the set crack up. Of course, he’s a comedian, so it must not be too hard for him. But, between all of the right answers to all of the wrong answers, there were a lot of great moments from the actor.

Meanwhile, KAT, was his usual loveable self. From the University of Kentucky and now the NBA the big man has always had an infectious personality. When he appears on shows like Wheel of Fortune it comes out even more. Fans were so excited to see the Minnesota Timberwolves star take the stage and spin the wheel for charity.
