Jackpot! And on national TV.
On Thursday night, Autumn Ernhard, 30, became the second person in the 30-year history of Wheel of Fortune to spin right and guess right – and end up with $1 million.
"I am in complete and utter shock," the animal pharmaceuticals sales representative from Laguna Niguel, Ca., told ABC News. "I'm shaking. I came here today because I love the game, I wanted to have some fun and solve some puzzles – I feel like I'm in a dream!"
In the excitement that follows her win, it sounds like she was able to solve the two-word puzzle – with only a G, an R and two Ts to go on – as "Tough Workout," "Because I work out," she said.

The host of the long-running game show Wheel of Fortune says that back in the day, he and Vanna White occasionally had a drink – or six – while working on the show.
