I have a friend! (The one everyone seems to have around here) He was on wheel of fortune and did great! Won over $10,000 and a trip to Aruba.
He's now in the bonus round and is ready to win the big prize! Whatever is in the envelope. He failed though because he just couldn't figure it out.

Being the smart fellow he is, he did his research to find out what the most common letters + vowel are picked from contestants in the bonus round. What he found through the magic of the internet was

C - 64%
M - 59%
D - 57%
A - 48%`

His category was Phrase and given RSTLNE and his chosen letters of CMDA, the bonus puzzle result ended up looking like this.

  _A_    _N   
_A_    _ _ _

He wants to know if any one is slick enough to solve what he could not! There has been many one letter solved puzzles in the history of the game show, so this is a very generous one!

Maybe I can make this a series of my own ;)

  • $\begingroup$ i dont know enough about the wheel of fortune. So just one question. RSTLNE and CMDA are the shown letter and we have to guess from the other remaining letters. right? $\endgroup$ – manshu Dec 17 '15 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ @manshu - Yes! That's correct. All the letters listed are letters shown (or not shown) in the puzzle. So that helps narrow it down. It's much harder with the 10 second pressure, but I'll make due, maybe make revisions based on how this one goes. $\endgroup$ – Timmy Dec 17 '15 at 18:10

    $\begingroup$ I've edited the tags - once wheeloffortune goes away we can switch to wheel-of-fortune. Spaces in tag names should be represented by hyphens, but it currently won't let me create wheel-of-fortune. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Dec 17 '15 at 19:44

  • $\begingroup$ Bah, couldn't figure out wax. I got to "clap on clap off", but couldn't make it past that. $\endgroup$ – JonTheMon Dec 17 '15 at 19:33
  • $\begingroup$ Great job! That was pretty quick also! $\endgroup$ – Timmy Dec 18 '15 at 12:52
