Math Teacher Beats The Odds & Wins 1 Million Dollar Jackpot On Wheel Of Fortune!

| Filed under: TV NewsEtc.Inspiration

Congratulations are in order!

Math teacher Sarah Manchester just won a million dollars on Wheel of Fortune!

As part of the syndicated game show's 32nd season premiere, Sarah beat out two other teacher's to play in the bonus round.

But winning the million wasn't as simple as figuring out a 12-letter phrase.

Sarah had to land on the million dollar wedge during regular play, never go bankrupt after that, win the entire game, land on the million dollar wedge (again!), and then solve her bonus round clue!

You don't have to be a math teacher to understand those odds.

Sarah's $1,017,490.00 total makes her just the third person to win the million dollar jackpot in the show's entire run.

It's nice to see someone actually win America's Game for once, unlike these unlucky people!

Plus, we guess Sarah can now buy all of the vowels she's ever wanted.

Sam Simon is a gazillionaire.

Sure, that's not a real word, but the man co-created The Simpsons and co-produced The Drew Carey Show, so he literally does have hundreds of millions.

Unfortunately, Sam was given a cancer diagnosis with only 3-6 months to live. Fortunately, that was back in 2012.

Since then, the stalwart animal lover has been using his fortune to help those who can't help themselves - animals. In addition to doing things like saving horses, he also has funded several wildlife sanctuaries and various other animal causes.

And to think, he used to be known as such an angry guy by his co-workers.

His ex-wife, actress Jennifer Tilly, has been by his side since his diagnosis. She says the change is remarkable:

She's a 15-year-old golden retriever, and she's believed to be the last living 9/11 search and rescue dog.

Bretange and her owner, Denise Corliss, went on their first deployment 13 years ago today: to ground zero of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The most tear jerky thing isn't the search work that Bretange did at ground zero, though.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, even scribbles and doodles from children!
