You haven't told us yet. Are you keeping the car? Are you taking the vacation?

I probably missed it. This has been a tough thread to keep up with! Don't forget to post pics of the vacation.

The car is a Mazda CX-5, correct? Pretty nice vehicle. I bought a new car a few months ago and that was one I considered. Ultimately bought a Honda CR-V, though.

Fantastic game, you absolutely mopped the floor with the wheel! I make no exaggeration when I say that's one of the best performances I can recall. J may not be for everyone but you've clearly found your game. I must say I'm absolutely green with envy, and hope I too can gt on Wheel someday.

They stopped having returning champions on Wheel of Fortune? I guess that shows how long it's been since I've watched.

Powerhouse win, Bobby/TPH!

They even tried to trip you up with something hoity-toity (gourmet cupcakes, wtf??) and didn't slow you a bit.

I don't watch a whole lot of WoF, but I have seen enough to know when a player is realllllyyyyyy good!

Kept your wits and didn't get rattled when the wheel wasn't nice to ya and that one ring-in didn't work for ya... Great job!

When did they have shopping? I thought they had the bonus wheel, but I always cared more about the puzzles than the prizes.

They haven't done shopping for about 30 years. I mean, who didn't secretly want a ceramic dalmatian?

IIRC in season 30 they had their one remaining ceramic dalmatian hidden among the studio's background props as an Easter egg in every episode.

Did anyone else have to adjust to the contestants not forming their answers in the form of a question?

I distinctly remember a ceramic giraffe among the potted palms.
