Charlie: “Look at this studio filled with glamourous prizes, fabulous and exciting merchandise! Including this: Beautifully decorated with a touch of the orient, this $21,000 dollar bedroom! Simple elegance, this $5,500 dollar lapis and diamond bow necklace! For the latest in TV technology, watch this $2,300 dollar big-screen! Over $73,000 dollars just waiting to be won today on Wheeeeeeel of Fortune! And now here's your host Rolf Benirschke!”
And now Rolf will cue “our leading lady” Vanna White to enter!
Lois Knight- From Nashville, Tenessee. One day total $22,500 dollars. (Wow!)
Cami (a surname that sounds like TrafficHonda)- From Tarzana, California. A freelance copywriter, went to Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana. Likes to ski, enjoys music and likes to travel
Rochelle Levine- Originally from Chicago. Now lives in Downey, California. Works for a major grocery chain in California. Married with two children, a 6 year old daughter and a 1 month old son. Rolf asks what she likes to do when she's not taking care of her kids and she responds “Sleeping”.
Rolf: “$750 is the top dollar value for this round, try not to hit bankrupt because if you do you lose your cash but not your merchandise, because once you buy a prize, it's yours to keep.”
