    This show was intense! It brought out the inner-gambler in every contestant. I like how her opponent apologises to her after losing $31,000!

    @cmurockjock what if cathy had THEN hit the whammy?

  24. cmurockjock says:

    Wow, just think if Cathy would have hit that $1000 + one spin space in the corner, just a second sooner/later, she would have doubled her money to $60816!

    Poor Cathy. I was cheering for her. If only Lori took the Color TV. (wind it back, you’ll see)
