Wheel Of Fortune
$5,000. The correct answer is $5,000. There is, however, the $10,000 prize space placed on "The Wheel." However, this space is treated as a single earned prize. In other words, if you landed on the $10,000 prize space and guessed the letter "T" and there were three "Ts," you would pick up the $10,000 prize card (just as you would any other prize card) and if you end up solving the puzzle you would then be awarded the $10,000 cash prize plus any other cash and prizes you may have earned during that puzzle. Whereas, if you had landed on the $5,000 space and guessed the letter "T" and there were three "Ts," your score would have automatically reflected a $15,000 gain. I didn't want there to be any confusion, so I left $10,000 prize space out as a possible answer to this question. I obtained much of the information used in this quiz at www.wheeloffortune.com.

|Before February of 1997, the hostess of the "Wheel of Fortune" had to physically turn the letters on the puzzle board. In February of 1997 the puzzle board was replaced with high resolution Sony touch screen monitors. How many monitors does the puzzle board contain? ||"Wheel of Fortune" Go for a Spin!
52. The puzzle board contains 52 touch screen monitors, 12 across in the top and bottom rows, and 14 across in the two middle rows. Vanna only has to touch the monitors when they light up, and the letter appears.
Vietnam War. Tell me you didn't guess the Civil War :) Pat Sajak joined the United States Army in 1968. He was sent to Vietnam and spent one and a half years in Saigon working for the Armed Forces Radio. Interestingly, it is said that Sajak began his radio cast each morning by shouting the words "Good morning, Vietnam." If this sounds familiar, you may remember actor Robin Williams saying these same words at the beginning of his radio casts in the film, "Good Morning, Vietnam."
No. No, she did not. Susan Stafford stayed on as the show's hostess. It was not until December of 1982 that Vanna made her first appearance on "Wheel of Fortune."
Chuck Woolery/Susan Stafford. Yes, it was Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford. Personally, I had never heard of Chuck Woolery until he began hosting the show "Love Connection."
January 6, 1975. The first episode of "Wheel of Fortune" aired on January 6, 1975. Neither Pat Sajak nor Vanna White were on the show at that time, however.
