What happened on 'Wheel of Fortune'?
In December 2021, Charlene Rubush of Nevada earned a total of $16,500 solving puzzles on “Wheel of Fortune.” Her efforts beat out the other contestants and earned her the chance to solve the final puzzle.
“You know, this one’s tough because you said all the right words, including the word ‘word’'' said “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak after the incident. “But, as you know, it’s got to be more or less continuous.”
The prize for solving the final puzzle correctly was a brand new 2021 Q3 Audi, which start at a price point around $34,000.
As it turns out, Audi agreed with Alex and other “Wheel of Fortune” fans. The official Audi Twitter account responded to Alex’s tweet stating, “You’re a winner in our eyes, Charlene. Now, let’s get you a prize. Time to #GiveHerTheQ3.”
Shortly after Audi’s original tweet, Audi tweeted again stating, “There’s no community like the Audi community. With your help, we tracked down Charlene! More to come as we help #GiveHerTheQ3.”
An Audi representative confirmed to Newsweek, in the spirit of the holidays, Audi will be awarding Charlene the brand new 2021 Audi Q3 she missed out on.
Due to Audi’s generosity, Charlene scored a pretty sweet car. The 2021 Audi Q3 has a sleek design, fast engine, and a comfortable interior.
