Video: 'Wheel of Fortune' Has a Second $1 Million Winner
A California woman hits the jackpot and is able to guess the puzzle correctly with only four letters.


"Wheel of Fortune" contestant won $1 million during the show's 30th anniversary celebration week. Autumn Ernhard took home the grand prize after hitting the jackpot in the $1 million bonus round and was able to solve the puzzle with only four letters on Thursday night, May 30.

"Tough Workout," she answered without hesitation, to which host Pat Sajak reacted in disbelief, "What?" Autumn was even more surprised when she discovered that she won $1 million.

After hugging her parents and fiance who were rushing to the stage upon learning her win, she was asked how she could guess the puzzle correctly. "Because I work out," she said. Pat jokingly asked her, "Is this the first time you've won $1 million?"

Autumn, who had already earned cash and prizes in regular rounds, won a total of $1,030,040. She became the second player in the show's 30-year history to win the grand prize. New Jersey woman Michelle Loewenstein won $1 million back in October 2008.

"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!"

"No one could believe it!" the 30-year-old woman added. "They were just off stage and couldn't see what my prize was. They were celebrating the fact that I solved the puzzle. They kept asking me how much I won, and I had to keep repeating it because no one believed me at first."
