Meriden Native Uses Puzzle-Solving Prowess To Win Big At "Wheel"

By  | 

(WIBW) - A Meriden native can look forward to a pretty nice honeymoon, thanks to her puzzle-solving skills!

Shannon Saville appeared on Wednesday night's "Wheel of Fortune" episode. She walked home with $50,400. Of that, $30,000 came from solving the bonus round puzzle, which turned out to be "muffled voices."

Saville says host Pat Sajak told her she was the first in the show's 30-year history to win with all cash and no prizes.

The Jefferson West High School graduate is attending graduate school in North Carolina. She says she'll use the money to pay off student loans and plan her honeymoon with her fiancee.
