No. The question was "On the game show 'Wheel of Fortune,' how much does it cost to buy a vowel?" The key word there is "does." There was no problem with the question, because it was asking about the cost in present tense. If the question was phrased "Jeopardy!" style such as "The price of vowel on 'Wheel of Fortune'," without a word signifying present tense such as "currently," then an appeal would have been understandable.
But all in all, I doubt it matters to her anymore, because she later appeared on a special "$0 Winners" show and won 1,000 times the current vowel price: $250,000.
the 2-season Bob Goen daytime version which had vowels at $100.
Vowels were originally $200, then reduced to $100 in early 1990. I recall this question as well.
The Wheel of Fortune History Wiki is a veritable cornucopia of the show's ups, downs, and all-arounds from its conception in 1973 to the present day, with info and pictures you won't find anywhere else.
Did You Know? - Over 200 BAV members have been winners on Wheel, taking a total of over $6,000,000 out the door. Josh Woo has the stats here.
