Favorite anecdote associated with being on the show?
One time I met someone who asked excitedly, “Aren't you that person I saw on Wheel of Fortune?” To acquiesce to her mood, I nodded quietly and changed the subject.

Yes. Now I get reminded of it whenever I get anything wrong that someone else knows.

What did you do with your winnings?
