Dave recently found himself $113,000 richer. He credits that to practice, some good luck, and being pretty good at solving word puzzles. He won cash, a trip to Barbados, and a new BMW by being a contestant on Wheel of Fortune. And he told me what Vanna White is REALLY like.

Our guest for this episode is Dave, and Dave recently found himself $113,000 richer, and he attributes that to some practice, some luck, and a pretty good talent for solving word puzzles. He won that money by being a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.

We discussed:

  • How he prepared for the game
  • How he actually got on the show as a contestant
  • The special instructions he was given
  • What Pat Sajak and Vanna White are REALLY like
  • How he’s handling taxes on his winnings

And there’s a bonus story toward the end of our conversation about how Dave actually saved someone’s life (unrelated to his game show appearance).

Here’s Dave winning cash, a trip to Barbados, and a new BMW:
