I’m onto you, Wheel of Fortune. You couldn’t let the prepubescent androids in the Scripps Spelling Bee have all the attention, could you? The evidence is overwhelming: to celebrate the game show’s 30th anniversary, only 30 year olds were picked as contestants this week. Last night, pharmaceutical salesperson Autumn Ernhard not only landed on and collected the prized million dollar wedge, but she also won the game, without ever spinning the wheel to “Bankrupt,” and then landed on the million dollar wedge AGAIN during the bonus round, where she had to solve the puzzle using only the letters you see above in less than 10 seconds. Um…TOOGU DOROBOT? Or to use it in a sentence, “Hey, hand me that TOOGU DOROBOT”? Vanna knows what I’m talking ’bout.
Anyway, Autumn won (“TOUGH WORKOUT”) the 30th anniversary prize…on May 30th. OPEN YOUR EYES, SHEEPLE.
Arvind Mahankali’s coming.
